Partners Meet

Dear Partners & Friends,

Having journeyed 10 years into “Making the Right to Education Real”, we at Dream School Foundation celebrated this milestone - the ten years of inspiring existence with our partners from the past and present, who have participated in realizing our vision. While the founding of Dream School Foundation was a great beginning, the journey was enriched due to the whole-hearted involvement and support of many individuals and organizations and their long standing support to our mission. It’s heartening that the partnership with our stakeholders has grown stronger over the years.

We have done some remarkable work together in Making Right to Education Real and our partnership has an important role to play in the coming years. Let us welcome the second decade with more vigour and hope to be more successful than our first!! .

Please find attached here the overview of our 10 year journey of which you all have been an integral part. We cherish each partnership, which forms the bedrock of our work and creating limitless opportunity for deserving students. On Aug 22nd, 2015, the Partners Meet presented us with an opportunity to meet, greet, and appreciate our partners and supporters in the journey so far and their continuous commitment in making possibilities real for thousands of our children and communities through your actions. 

Reminiscing the days gone by, our partners relived their days at DSF with much fondness and pledged their partnership in DSF’s journey forward. To all those partners who couldn’t participate in the day’s function, your contributions are deeply appreciated with special thanks.

The GlobalGiving platform has enabled us reach friends and their friends across thousands of  miles and get them involved in our mission for the Right to Education, Thank you GlobalGiving for this opportunity and a BIG thank you to all for your partnership !!

LAUDING OUR ACHIEVERS!!

Grade 10 Scorecard
Grade 10 Scorecard

The Dream School Foundation celebrates its tenth year of existence in 2015 with the best SSLC results till date- with a pass percentage close to 100 % that is well above the Karnataka state average of 81.82.

Rabiya topped the list with 96% and 9 out of top ten places were bagged by our girl students. In our pursuit to Make the Right to Education Real, these results again prove that the commitment and investment of time, effort & resources we make collectively with the sheer belief in our dear students, can produce history making outcomes.

This result is finally due to the tremendous hard work of our students and the combined actions of teachers, volunteers, donors and parents – Join us in congratulating our effort to challenge predictability and create consistent breakthrough performance!!

Have a look at the score card and be proud of our students and your efforts.

In continuation of our stupendous SSLC results, our Pre-University batch secured the best results till date. Over 95% of our students cleared the examination and have made the entire DSF family proud! This is excellent news for all of us who have invested in their future in many ways and have waited anxiously for these results. The children make us proud every day and we wholeheartedly thank each one of you who help us 'Make their Right to Education Real’.

The girls were in the forefront as usual - Manasa and Bhargavi topped the Science & Commerce streams with 96% each, and all the 10 top places in the commerce stream were bagged by girls! 
Boys were not far behind with Mohd. Rafeeq and Sagar securing 94% in the second place and Kumar in the third place with 93% in the Science stream. We had a total of 8 centums this year with Nargis Mohammed securing two of them in Computer Science & Accounts.

The last 10 years of journey of DSF have witnessed remarkable performance from our students year after year both academically and holistically. This is made possible due to the sheer hard work coupled with the passion and energy from each one of you who have been with us in these 10 years.. 

We look forward to seeing new degrees and accolades on our way while we enjoy the 10th year of our excellent existence.

A Fulfilling Year!

A Fulfilling Year!

 

It is over a year that we have been on GlobalGiving and it has been a very fulfilling and successful experience for us. We would like to thank GlobalGiving and all our supporters for their partnership through the year. The year bygone has been also very satisfying otherwise and we feel very happy to report our accomplishments.

With the current rapidly changing landscape in education and other areas in India, we realized that while our efforts at the primary and High school levels must continue, we need to enhance our focus on the youth, the age group between 15 to 20 years. Towards this end, we worked to increase our reach and commitment to the Ten Plus & Graduate programme for the college going students. The disturbing reality that an estimated 80% of the total graduates in India are not readily employable in industry, prompted us to introduce the Finishing School programme along with a strong Mentoring component for our Graduate students. This was all made possible through your Global Giving contributions.

A few highlights of our Ten Plus programme in 2014:

  • We are proud to announce a whopping 86% PUC (12th grade) result as against the state average of 60%. 
  • We had 16 distinctions and 68 first classes with our topper Surya K securing a magnificent 97% with 100% marks in 3 subjects and CET rank of 109 among millions!
  • We now have among our many B.Com, B.Sc and other graduate students, 26 Engineering and 3 Medical students!!
  • 135 new students joined the Ten Plus programme after 500+ new applicants went through a rigorous admission process taking the total from 345 to 480 students.
  • Functional English sessions and Basic Computer coaching in vacations and on weekends.
  • Regular academic sessions for Science & Commerce students with extra coaching for Grade 12 science students for CET and other entrance exams at professional coaching centres.
  • Leadership development courses, career conseling and life skill sessions with special focus on teenage challenges conducted by in-house experts and external resource persons.
  • Mentor programme and Finishing school initiated for Graduate programme students.
  • Parenting Interface strengthened through workshops and House visits on regular basis.
  • Outbound visits to corporate houses, excursions and Carnival enhanced the excitement through the year!!

We spent a lot of quality time with the students and parents this year and we are sure this will bear fruit by the end of the year. All this and much more kept us busy through the year and we feel very happy to have achieved what we did by the end of it. None of this would have been possible without your support and we look forward to your continued partnership in the coming years to help us lead the students to attractive livelihood options and a brighter future.
