Gadchiroli: More than 100 girls who live in an ashram school in Maharashtra's Gadchiroli district have left the school. The girls have said that this school does not have a female warden. Even a woman employee feels unsafe for her not being here, which has led to her decision to leave school. Schoolgirls say they have complained to education and other related departments several times in this regard, but no one is willing to take action on the matter, so they have the only way to leave school at the end.
It may be mentioned that the Navabuddh Government Ashram School for Scheduled Tribes girls has been started at Sironcha in Gadchiroli district. Tribal girls from different villages of the district study here. Six years ago this school was started. Since then, no women wardens have been appointed here. There has also been no appointment of any other women employees, which is causing a lot of problems for the girls.
The girls say they have been informed several times to the administrative authorities in this regard, but no action has been taken. A child has reported that the Ashram School is surveyed twice a year. The team that came to the school during the survey has been asked not to be women wardens and women employees, but no action has been taken so far.
