Former economist transforming lives of the poorest of the poor in Dehradun

Dehradun. GK Swamy, founder of the Purkal Youth Development Society (PYDS) Learning Academy a school for the ‘poorest of the poor’ on the outskirts of Dehradun is like having a lesson in what one can achieve if one sets out to work selflessly for others. Swamy, who is now in his early 80s laid the basis for the school albeit unknowingly after he shifted to the Doon valley post his retirement from Mumbai almost 20 years ago.
With time on his hands, the former economist started teaching local children at his home in Purkal village almost 20 km from Dehradun city, while his wife Chinni ensured that the children had enough to eat by cooking meals for them. Soon, more and more children started flocking to the couple necessitating the home classes to shift to a nearby building where the children were given after-school tutoring. The aim, recalls Swamy, was to help the children make the transition to a good English medium school from the village Hindi medium school. “Poor children have to learn only in Hindi, while children of the elite go to English medium schools. This policy has hindered upward mobility and denied poor children access to good education. We wanted to change that.”
Not only did Swamy managed to change that, his after-school bridge centre soon grew into a full-fledged school (pre-school to class XII) which is now affiliated with the CBSE and is offering a quality of education to children from several villages in and around Dehradun that is comparable, if not better than most private schools. Many of the school’s alumni — mostly sons and daughters of maids, labourers, casual workers and gardeners have got scholarships after passing out and are now studying in premier universities in the US and across the world. “I believe that all children have immense potential and poverty should not be an obstacle in bringing it out. That is why, we give them an education which ensures that they and their families never have to get back to the life that they started from.”
Swamy’s accent is not just on quality education, he also emphasises on the need for children to be provided wholesome food. As a result, all the 510 children in the school are provided four daily meals cooked fresh in the school and are picked up from home and dropped back. The school also ensures periodic health check-up of every child and keeps all their medical records till they pass out . Plus, there is an insistence on every student speaking in English which as Swamy points out, is essential if the students are to have an edge in a competitive world, and emerge as self-confident individuals. The cost of educating each child is around Rs one lakh per annum and the annual expenses of over Rs 5 crore are met entirely by donations. “We are lucky to have people supporting our work but it is a constant challenge to generate enough funds to ensure that the quality of education is not compromised.”

The school has also introduced innovations like having teacher mentors individuals who sit in each class and give feedback to teachers, as well as ‘remedial teachers’ whose work is to conduct one-to-one sessions with students in order to ensure that they catch up.
The efforts put by Swamy and his teachers are evident when one interacts with the students. Two students, Mansi Chhetri and Shivam Belwal recently featured among the top .1% scorers for English subject in CBSE schools across India.

In the recent group of students who passed out in March this year, most have already got scholarships for pursuing higher education in fields like fashion designing, physiotherapy, hospitality, mass communication and architecture from renowned colleges. One student, Jyoti Mamgain, daughter of a lady worker in PYDS’s Stree Shakti division (which helps provide self-employment to rural women) recently got selected for a 100% scholarship for a four-year university programme in the US.
Another girl, Aditi Thapli, daughter of a small kiosk owner, is going to Wharton School for a summer training programme while Shalini Sharma, daughter of a gardener, has won the Kennedy Lugar scholarship and will be going to the USA for one year. “This school has given be the confidence that I can be anything I want, if only I work hard enough. My life took a turn since I enrolled here six years ago,” said Muskan Godiyal, a class X student who is also a Brown University scholar, having attended a cultural exchange programme in USA. She is also the daughter of a gardener.

18 Mumbaikars die of TB every day, says study by NGO

NGO Praja brings out a health report every year, analyzing data gathered from BMC’s health department using RTI
Civic officials dismissing NGO’s claims said, “A health programme cannot be analysed based on randomly gathered data using RTI.”

MUMBAI: Not only do 18 Mumbaikars die of tuberculosis (TB) every day, the number of Mumbaikars dropping out of rigorous TB treatment increased from 9% in 2012 to 19% in 2016-17, said new data released by NGO Praja on Wednesday.

However, civic officials dismissed the NGO’s analysis. “A health programme cannot be analysed based on some data randomly gathered using RTI,” said civic TB officer Dr Daksha Shah.

In fact, the BMC public health department had, in its RTI reply, asked Praja to analyse the data with Revised National Tuberculosis Control Programme (RNTCP) officials.

Praja officials were adamant. “There is clearly something wrong with BMC’s TB control programme,” said Praja’s Milind Mhaske. “There has been a sharp drop in the number of people signing up with the RNTCP for treatment. This shows people prefer to go to the private sector for treatment. Moreover, the drop-out rate in the government programme has increased from 9% in 2012 to 19% in 2016,” he added.

Praja brings out a health report every year, analyzing data gathered from BMC’s health department using RTI. It uses information mentioned in death certificates to calculate the toll due to various diseases – a step the BMC has been opposed to because its officials say death certificates are not scientifically filled out (BMC is in the process of conducting educational programmes for doctors on how to fill a death certificate in accordance with World Health Organisation norms).

At a press conference held on Wednesday, Mhaske said, “Mumbai’s health budget for 2017-18 was Rs 3,312 crore. This is only marginally lower than the entire budget for Thane Municipal Corporation (Rs 3,390 crore). Yet, there is a lot more that needs to be done.”
BMC officials said the data was “unscientifically” put together. A senior BMC official on Wednesday said Praja sought data about “new registrations” in 2016 from the BMC. “We replied that new registrations are 15,767. Now, TB treatment stretches from six months to three years, leading to some patients continuing treatment for years,” said the official. Praja should have ideally asked for the total number of patients under treatment in a particular year. Dr Shah added Praja data possibly has a lot of duplication as it had collated data from dispensaries, hospitals as well as the public health department.

She added the BMC had done an analysis of the number of defaulters. “Around 30% of the defaulters’ list is made up of migrants who return home as soon as they feel better. The second major group is alcoholics,” said Dr Shah.

Dengue, Tuberculosis Cases On A Rise In Mumbai: Study

Milind Mhaske, project director of Praja Foundation, said, “Nearly 18 people are estimated to have died each day from TB in 2016-17.”

Mumbai: Praja Foundation, an NGO and a watchdog of civic affairs today said dengue cases have seen a massive rise of 265 per cent in Mumbai in the last five years.

Dengue cases have spiralled from 4,867 in 2012-13 to 17,771 in 2016-17, the NGO said.

Issuing a white paper on health, today, the NGO said, “As per the RTI data, dengue cases in government hospitals, dispensaries have increased from 4,867 in 2012-13 to 17,771 in 2016-17. Besides, tuberculosis (TB) cases have also seen a rise from 36,417 in 2012-13 to 50,001 in 2016-17.”

Milind Mhaske, project director of Praja Foundation, said, “Nearly 18 people are estimated to have died each day from TB in 2016-17.”

“However, DOTS, the flagship government programme to tackle TB, saw a dramatic drop in enrolment, decreasing from 30,828 patients in 2012 to 15,767 patients in 2016,” he said.

“Astonishingly, municipal councillors asked only 45 questions in the past five years on TB, compared to 68 questions on naming, renaming of hospitals, cemeteries in the same period,” he said.

Commenting on the findings, Mr Mhaske added, “The continuing increase in cases of major diseases such as these indicates that various authorities in Mumbai have much to worry about. We have a long way to go towards achieving goals of sustainable development.”

Every year, Praja commissions a household survey to Hansa Research to incorporate health related perspectives of citizens. This year, the survey was conducted with over 20,000 households.

“The BMC needs to step out of denial mode and tackle the ongoing health crisis head on. The same goes for other governmental authorities, who must step up to the challenge and ensure a healthier city,” Shivali Bagayatkar, project officer at Praja Foundation, said.
