Rajasthan Patrika launches CSR initiative ‘Neenv’ to raise levels of education in government schools

Neenv (Shiksha Ka Sawal) is new initiative taken by Rajasthan Patrika. Neenv is basically an action based campaign focused on raising the levels of education and to promote and inspiring environment in government schools. The outreach of this campaign spreads across its footprints in one state, 33 districts, 295 blocks, 30,000+ government schools.

Neenv throws light on the ground realities and situation existing in the current government schools across the state. This campaign is boosted with the help of three main acts RTI (Right to Information), RTE (Right to Education), RTH (Right to Hearing) which aims at monitoring the government schools and public education. A team of 200 organisations, 400 reports, 500 volunteers, 50,000 active citizens, 1,00,000 RTI's have actively contributed in reaching out to their targeted districts and areas.

The main issues that are covered under this campaign are divided into two phases:

Citizen Audit, an integral part of the initiative is structured to produce tangible results. Aankhon Dekhi – through this, a physical mapping is done keeping in mind the issues that are faced in government schools like – school building, toilets, water facilities, playgrounds, teachers and students ratio, school management committee.

Kanon Suni – A direct interaction is done with the teachers, students and parents. Interaction is done with the help of a questionnaire which is individually being filled by the teachers, students and parents.

Citizen journalism, another important aspect of this initiative covers storytelling, experience sharing and social media trending.

Different activities and events have been initiated through this campaign. An ongoing activity that has been implemented is where government school children expressed the desires, dreams and difficulties they face every day and write them out to be sent to the Collector.

Many celebrities like John Abraham, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Abhishek Bachchan , Asin Thottumkal, Radhika Apte and Richa Chadha have promoted this event.

Social activists like PV Rajagopal and former IAS Harsh Mander have visited government schools and interacted with the children in order to motivate them.
