In India, a substantial number of children are yet to get the opportunity of formal education for several reasons even after the implementation of The Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act 2009. The situation has not improved over the years as a large number of such children either become victims of child labour, get married at tender age, fall prey to human trafficking or forced to take care of household chores.Social and economic barriers create hindrances for children to continue their studies. Access to formal schooling and receiving quality education are the two major challenges for the children in government schools. At the Swapnopuron School in Hingalgunj, we try to provide English-based quality education to children coming from a lower social-economic background. More than 250 children are presently studying in this school in the Nursery to Standard V grades. We have found that over 95% of these children are extremely intelligent and have inherent skills to acquire knowledge with ease.
Your support to these children would certainly bring about meaningful changes in their lives as well as that of the parents. Academic support would also help these children to overcome trauma and abuse at home. At present, we have just completed the ground floor of the school building with the help of Roundtable Foundation, but more funds are required to complete the three-storied school building. Our aim is to make this a CBSE affiliated school for more than 1000 students, from Nursery to standard X. Your support to these children would certainly bring about meaningful changes in their lives as well as that of the parents. Academic support would also help these children to overcome trauma and abuse at home.
