Education, most powerful weapon for change

Education is the first step to given to children as the power to choose the way of life they want to lead. In RISE, we understand that education gives us knowledge of the world around us and changes it into something better. It develops in us a perspective of looking at life. It helps children to build opinions and have points of view on things in life. Children in RISE are dealt with extra care and compassion to motivate them towards schooling and learning as their day today routine is already very stressful. Before right to education it was a challenge to bring these children to classrooms as they were an added source of income for their families. But now since the challenge is to maintain quality of education for these children, we in RISE, with gracious support from all over the world through Global Giving are ensuring that these children can face the world and join the race with equal compatibility. In the past quarter, children were engaged in activities related to cleanliness, health & hygiene. Rallies were conducted, WASH workshops were conducted and our children even cleaned and maintained a public part as their contribution In the national movement of cleanliness initiated by our honourable Prime Minister Mr Narendra Modi called “Swachhta hi Sewa”. There is an old saying that “Cleanliness is next to Godliness.” It is one of the good human qualities and is a part of civilization. Cleanliness is very important for keeping most of the diseases at bay. Therefore, it is essential to inculcate hygienic habits in children right from early childhood. Inculcating the habit of cleanliness, health and hygiene at early age gives a larger and lasting impact. Apart from being a contributor in national campaign, RISE children also participated in various cultural festivals, they were introduced to the reason, the process and its impact while celebrating various festivals. Children celebrated the festival of janamashtmi , also witnessed International Literacy Day, where not only children but their parents were also called upon at the centres and made aware about importance of education. RISE witnessed Dusshera, festival of lights Deepawali and marked the birth anniversary of father of the nation Mahatma Gandhi. Each of these events is aimed to be celebrated in a way that children carry the real message behind them and inculcate them in daily life. An example of Kavita, 8 years, coming from an economically struggling family of 8 people, is a hardworking girl, It turns out all she needed was a little extra help in understanding class subjects she had not understood and the teachers in her school had no time to explain to her. The exposure visits and interactive activities in RISE brought out the innate curiosity and habit of learning she had within her. She enthusiastically participates in everything now. After participating in the parents meeting and workshops, her parents also now understand the benefits of education and wow make sure she has enough free time from chores to do her homework and study her lessons. Very importantly Kavita’s parents also feel like they are part of their daughter’s life and progress and are proud of their daughter’s accomplishments and say, “ Kavita is singing new “kavita” of learning in her life and we thank RISE for this.” Although these victories may seem small to the average person, but we know that it’s a small step towards bigger change and keeping the hopes high you are supporting us in this mission. Our children are being prepared towards bigger field of life and in this mission; gracious funders and considerate people like you have also joined us through your small and big contributions. Every penny received from any part of the world is made sure to be reaching to the neediest child and help him or her to RISE above all obstacles towards a dignified and sustainable life. We ensure that the kids are learning and improving new lessons each day and for your ceaseless support we feel deep gratitude.

Little Efforts for Bigger Smiles

“To build a nation, build a school.” -Amartya Sen, Nobel Prize-winning Economist

Poverty affects a child's development and educational outcomes beginning in the earliest years of life, both directly and indirectly through mediated, moderated, and transactional processes. School, parents’, and community’s readiness, or the child's ability to use and profit from school, has been recognized as playing a unique role in escape from poverty increasingly in developing countries like India. It is a critical element but needs to be supported by many other components of a learning friendly strategy, such as improved opportunity structures and empowerment of educators that play important role in shaping the life of our 500 poor children in RISE. 

AROH Foundation embarked on the journey to bring hope to the lives of 100 poor and deprived slum kids living in Sangam Vihar, and as you are aware, with generous support from funding community, we were able to enrol 500 children at 10 RISE Centres.As we are completing about three years of operations, a remarkable change is seen the children who have been attending sessions regularly and are showing excellent improvement in  attendance. Also the increase in scholastic development of children has been commendable.

RISE has been striving hard to foster emotional, psychological and educational well-being of its children. Rise children were introduced to yoga through participation in the biggest yoga rally held at the central park of Connaught place, the main venue of international yoga day celebration in Delhi. It was heart-warming to see our RISE children perform yoga amongst thousands of other participants. The aim of Yoga Session was Self-realization, to overcome all kinds of sufferings. The interventions were also planned to empower parents through learning classes for parents in RISE. Simultaneously the teachers were given extensive demonstration on new techniques of teaching learning, creating an ambience of excitement, enthusiasm and interests for children with easily understandable Post Based Learning (PBL) curriculums for easy learning. Introduction of better monitoring and assessment tools were done. There are no magic bullets that can be applied across all settings, but RISE not only strives to provide a better educational status to poor and underserved children, but the programme also tries to improve their nutritional by providing food supplements.

Holistic development of children ensures a healthier and brighter future for them. Both individual characteristics and contextual factors determine how children can benefit from educational opportunities and over the course of time, escape from poverty and stress and in RISE we are constantly creating layer by layer blanket to help children overcome such stress and RISE and SHINE.

With your generous support, 500 children are being led to a brighter future. They are being saved from misery and drudgery and given an opportunity to enjoy a normal childhood. Your generous support has helped us to serve and secure the Right to Education of more than 500 children living in extreme conditions of depravity.  Now each one of them knows that THERE IS SOME ONE SOME WHERE WHO CARES!

Dispelling deepest darkness through Education

Colors of Wisdom

Education is and always will be very important in building a strong foundation in one’s life.This is especially true in terms of looking at our future generation. We want our youth to be educated, to be up to date with current issues, and able to provide knowledge to the next generation. Education is a strong building block in building a stronger and healthier community. This starts by putting an emphasis on the importance of education in our youth today. As a community, it is our obligation to help a child develop their identity and be a contributing factor to society. We must refocus on the idea that a child is the centre of our community.

Keeping in mind the same thing, the AROH foundation had also done last month's co-curriculum activities with the children about the Rise Centre and the community.At AROH , the importance of co-curricular activities in education is realised with the teaching curriculum RISE centres follow. The month of saw RISE centres engage in multiple co-curricular activities to engage the students and parents. International Women’s Day is annually held on March 8 to celebrate women’s achievements throughout the world. It is also known as the United Nations (UN) Day for Women’s Rights and International Peace. At RISE, we understand how education can transform the life of a girl, giving them social identity and independence. History has witnessed, that whenever a girl is empowered with education, she has played very significant role in the expansion and growth of the Indian economy, and acted as a force to reckon with. Women education refers to every form of education that aims at improving the knowledge, and skill of women and girls. At RISE, we ensure that maximum number of girls are enrolled and equipped for all battles of life. AROH Foundation marked International Women’s Day within RISE centres even though monthly evaluation tests were in full swing. Educators presented stories of Mother Teresa, Mary Kom and Kiran Bedi narrating the struggles they faced and how they overcame them through their constant perseverance and persistence. Children were seen mesmerized hearing how a normal girl like them could reach up to those high levels just through education, hard work and determination.

Rise Centres also took an initiative into this aspects of all the educators in different centres did a small workshop on health and hygiene in which they were taught the importance of health and what is the meaning of personal hygiene. Like personal hygiene, we should also focus on social and psychological hygiene. We should try to understand the importance of public sanitation. With these good habits, we can have a long, happy and disease-free life. So Stay Clean and Keep Smiling. AROH witnessed World Health Day, Poetry day and conducted rallies to ware children, their parents and related community.

Thus in RISE, we don’t just are catering to 500 individuals but also on concerned community and larger population that also ensures the baton of change being handed over to the change itself!
