Self Reliant India
Rewari, Nuh & Jhajjar (Haryana)
A primary survey done by SRI revealed that 55% of students drop out before finishing class 12th and only 2% finished their graduation with appropriate exposure. No students get landed into the formal Job sector. The key problem that SRI seeks to address is the problem of “Ineffective school environment and unsupportive home & community environment” which results in poor student learning outcomes and early dropouts of students belonging to low economic sections. Because of this, families who have been in poverty since the beginning could not get out of poverty to date. It came to our understanding that children with special talent should get an opportunity to progress at a faster pace by getting quality education irrespective of their families’ paying capacity.
We have an initiative that focuses on primary school kids of Class 5 of Govt. Schools in Haryana and plans to train them in such a way that they are able to pursue secondary education with ease. The Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas are a system of alternate schools for gifted students in India. We aim at providing these talented students from extremely backward areas of India, a chance to receive quality education after 5th standard so that they are at par with the students from urban areas and have the ability to become working professionals in any sector or field of work in the future.
Scalability and Impact:
Currently, we are directly working with three districts Rewari, Nuh, and Jhajjar of Haryana State. Last Year we worked with all 22 districts of Haryana with the help of the Government. Also last year we expanded our work in the Ajmer district of Rajasthan with the help of Barefoot College Tilonia.
