Jammu and Kashmir: Community classes held for tribal students in Rajouri

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 08 Sep 2021, 05:57 pm

Rajouri: Community classes were taken for children of tribal nomadic communities in the higher reaches of the Pirpanjal range in Jammu and Kashmir's Rajouri district recently.

 

Seven such seasonal community centres are operational on the higher reaches of the Pirpanjal range to ensure that the education of these children is not affected due to migration, reports ANI.

Dr Shahid Iqbal Choudhary, Secretary to Government Tribal Affairs Department, Jammu and Kashmir told ANI that the administration of the union territory has recently conducted a survey to identify hamlets in the region where schools need to be built.

Choudhary told ANI, "These people live in the most difficult circumstances. They stay away from home with their herds of livestock for six months for a livelihood. A lot of focus needs to be given to their development on which the Jammu and Kashmir administration is already working. We are planning all possible facilities for them. We have also received feedback and suggestions from them which will be included in the plan. We have conducted a survey where we have got to know about the number of hamlets where schools are needed. This information has been provided to the Education department and the work plan has been chalked out, work will start soon."
