Educate Girl Programme- Singarpur Survey Process


Kajal Goswami shares her field experience working under the Educate Girl programme of Edu leader. Kajal and Rajni were assigned with the task of collecting survey data from Singarpur. They set out to work at 10 in the morning and began by making a rough sketch or an overview map of the village, strategizing as there were about four wards in the village. However, these efforts proved to be futile as due to the geographical area that was greater than expected. To better grasp the features of the village they decided to call former edu leaders Abhishek and Neetu. Neetu suggested approaching ward members of the village as they could guide with the proceedings. They went to the house of a ward member and met Ruby Sharma who, while hesitant at first, was extremely impressed by the motives of Kajal and Rajni. She therefore decided to call up her Husband Murari Sharma. With skepticism, he asked questions about the utility of the survey and upon understanding the depth of the survey activities and the inclination, Edu-leaders were more than happy to guide them and support them in any which manner possible. Thus, the overview map was successfully created, and it turned out that Mr. Murari Sharma was also a teacher and educator himself. The survey team was beyond happy and motivated by the kindness of Mr. Sharma who expressed his willingness to participate in the survey and solve any issues or miscommunications that might arise during the following process of data collection. Thus, the first day of making a vision and action plan was fruitful and Kajal ended the day by talking to a few more locals residing in the area before returning.
