Jagadguru Kripalu Mahila Mahavidyalay students improving villagers' lives through education

Latest story from Jagadguru Kripalu Parishat Education facebook page. Visit and like their page for the latest news and pictures from Jagadguru Kripalu Parishat Education, founded by Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj.

Every year a 7-Day Special Camp is conducted by Kripalu Mahila Mahavidyalay (KMM), a college established and patronized by Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj, in coordination with NSS in rural parts of North India for the upliftment of society. This year the NSS Camp is being held from 24th January to 30th January 2012 and the camp is divided into two shifts per day:
• 8am -- 12pm
• 1pm -- 5pm

During these camps, the students of Kripalu Mahila Mahavidyalay educate the villagers on issues such as the dowry system, female feticide, population control, and other current issues affecting the area.

The local communities in these areas have sheltered lives and are generally uneducated and illiterate, and do not realise that they are amidst complex social problems. The Kripalu Mahila Mahavidyalay students volunteer their time during the NSS Camps to shed light on these issues. The villagers are given advice on how these problems can be minimized and are also educated on how to find the best resolution for these issues.

These camps are not only beneficial for the local uneducated communities, but are also beneficial for the students. These young girls acquire knowledge to spread awareness for the upliftment of society, in addition to gaining personal and interpersonal skills such as team work, leadership etc.

For the past few years, NSS students of  Kripalu Mahila Mahavidyalay have been going to villages in Kunda, Pratapgarh District, to educate the local villagers on various social issues. Since students have been going to these villages, the cleanliness of the villagers and the overall condition of the villages have improved immensely.

Dr. Suparna Rao pointed out that in rural areas, females are often neglected and are not fed properly, and that this will affect the males of the society as well, by explaining to the local villagers that these same females will give birth to the next generation, which will have a negative impact on the health of males born in the future. On one of the days, the students marched in a rally to increase awareness on the rights to vote.
