In Simdega, Jharkhand, teachers from a government school for girls who have been working without any salary for 30 years. The school is an initiative of Project Balika, where students and school receive all the provisions as mentioned by the government. All the teachers that have been working here since the 80’s haven’t got their salary till today.

  • The Teacher says :

“We haven’t been paid since 30 years.”

“The wait for my salary has been so long that I have lost my husband and I am all alone.”

“I had accidents twice going to and fro from school. I broke my leg. I have no money to pay for a surgery.”

“I am very helpless without my salary.”

“I have been waiting all this while that someday I will get my salary.
I am waiting till this day and come to school to teach in the hope that one day I will be paid.”

“My children are very smart in their studies but I cannot afford a good school for their education.”

“I got a job in this school in 1987. From the time I joined this school till 2014, I haven’t received a single penny. It is surprising how we manage to come back here to teach and sustain our lives and our family.”

“The government’s current policy has been incomplete for us. We are running this school in the hopes that someday the government will pay heed to us. We hope that our money will come to us today but are left in in the lurch. We haven’t received any word from any official or authority.”
