Jharkhand Launches Program to Increase Attendance in Schools


Ranchi: The Jharkhand government has launched a new program to increase attendance in schools. The program, called "School Chalo Abhiyan," aims to ensure that all children between the ages of 6 and 14 are enrolled in school and attending regularly.

The program will be implemented in all 24 districts of Jharkhand. It will involve a number of activities, including door-to-door surveys to identify children who are not enrolled in school, awareness campaigns to encourage parents to send their children to school, and providing financial assistance to families who are struggling to afford the cost of education.

The government has set a target of increasing attendance in schools by 10% in the first year of the program. If successful, this would mean that an additional 200,000 children would be enrolled in school and attending regularly.

The program is being funded by the World Bank. The World Bank has provided a loan of $100 million to the Jharkhand government to support the implementation of the program.

The Jharkhand government is hopeful that the program will be successful in increasing attendance in schools. The government believes that education is the key to improving the lives of children and their families.
