Mainstreaming children in 2016

Tamanna is going to school again! This brilliant 10 year old girl was forced to drop out of a local school due to financial constraints of her family. Tamanna joined Aasraa's Sreet Smart program­ 'Mobile Learning Centre' for 6 months to continue her education. Tamanna is intellegent, hardworking and regular. With her commitment and dedication, she continued her learning with Aasraa. This year, she gained admission in a reputed English medium school! They are many other students like Tamanna, who have gained admission in schools in Dehradun.

We are bursting with pride­- the dedicated hard work of our children and staff has been amazing, resulting in truly incredible results. Our Street Smart project this year brought 164 children up to an educational level that allowed us to mainstream them in a combination of local schools and our NIOS project (National Institute of Open Schooling). NIOS is a boon for children who are unable to find an appropriate place in the conventional school structure. 

We would like to highlight that the excitement of studying at the technology enabled Mobile Learning Centers has yielded excellent results! 40 children from these centres in Bindal & ISBT have now joined school. This is an incredible achievement for us, as most of these children had fallen off the education cycle. Our USP is no that no child is left unreachable or unteachable! 

As we have mainstreamed these 164 children in April, our commitment to them remains as strong to ensure school fees, uniforms, textbooks and of course after school support. These children have now graduated from Street Smart program to Aasraa’s Wings of Doon program.

We have successfully mainstreamed 327 children in total in the past few years. 330 children are now attending our Street Smart program for mainstreaming preparation. 

We are thankful to our well wishers who have supported our cause and have helped us ensure that children get an opportunity to learn and gain the education they deserve.

A measure of success of the Wings program has been our annual board results for Class X & XII. We have a 100% pass rate! All 22 children from Aasraa Trust passed Class X & XII Uttarakhand Board & CBSE board exams with flying colors! 6 students from class X passed with first division marks with Shubham Nag topping the list with 82.5% (honors list). 

Shubham stays in Aasraa's shelter home and is a student of Government Inter College, Dobhalwala. He is the son of a single mother who works as a daily wage laborer in Dehradun. Shubham dreams of becoming an engineer.

In additon, this year we expanded our scope of work and added a new project to the Wings program. Dehradun's oldest school CNI Boys Inter College, Paltan Bazaar has joined hands with Aasraa Trust to provide after school tutorial support to 150 mainstreamed boys. This all inclusive program includes sport facility in basketball, badminton, physical education along with academics. All children are provided with a nutritious meal, snacks and medical care. Children of class 9-12 receive support in subjects like English, Maths, Science, Commerce, Accounts, Economics, General Knowledge and Computer Studies. 

With our new project, we will be able to reach out to a new area and children who are in need of a quality tutorial program. Our aim is to bring them upto speed with the level of learning and education in private schools. We want to enable these students to compete fairly with others during college competitive exams and further. 

With all our supporters and well wishers, we hope to enable all our children to aim for the stars & achieve the best.

Thank you for your encouragement and being a positive part of their lives.
