At RISE, we believe that Education is an integral part of the community. RISE centres thrive because of the community, and for the benefit of the community. Hence, with Remedial Education RISE conduct celebrations & events wherein children can learn through multiple interactions with the community and the community also benefits through the efforts of & interactions with our children and staff. Our RISE community includes less privileged kids living in slums. Coming to RISE, these kids take part in regular major events & festivals which bring changes not only in the amount of knowledge they gain but also in the abilities to think and acquire habits, skills and attitude which characterize an individual who is socially accepted and adjusted. RISE encourages students to embrace other traditions and culture just like the way they do with their own.

Apart from classroom activities, we also pay heed to other important festivals which must be celebrated in order to understand our country’s tradition and culture. The purpose of such celebrations with communities is to share children's thoughts, skills & work with the larger community in order to inspire them and spread certain messages. AROH believes in the “empowering” effect of education and its ability to enable people to develop a critical questioning attitude towards society, government, existing gender and cultural stereo types. Apart from building relationship and friendship, such celebrations bring happiness and love amongst the students. School teachers dealing with empowered RISE kids report a marked improvement in the children’s behaviour and learning.  All the RISE kids are getting much better scores in school after years of intervention. Parents are relieved from the burden of paying high costs to private tuition. Children are spending more time in studies & meaningful activities instead of getting involved in vain activities in their free time.

Rani, daughter of Mr Rajesh (all names have been changed), is a dynamic and soft spoken kid at RISE centre.Income of the house was not supporting 2 daughters' education. Instead of being a bright learner, Rani was not supported in extra classes.When Rajesh got to knowabout RISE centres, he was more than happy to enrol all his children in RISE. Rani has, as always, been a pro student in RISE too. Her school marks has improved. She has developed as a person too as she participatesin all cultural and sportsactivities within RISE. Her parents are also active in all PTMs and feel proud of their children. From a shy girl within the limits of her house, she has emerged as outspoken leader of the class. Rani wants to be a Teacher like her educator Didi when she grows big! And RISE is helping her realise her dreams.

Keeping its values intact, RISE wishes to offer the right kind of educational system which is based on moral ethics. It also believes that education will allow the child to bloom, blossom and thrive, giving them the right platform where they will work towards becoming a responsible citizen. We are indeed thankful to your 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, which is their right.

Yet another month has gone by and RISE’s commitment to providing quality education to rural children remains. In past years, RISE introduced various activities, events & festivals to help children speak, read and express. After its introduction, the children are now slowly but steadily creating a revolution in classes as well as communities. Equity in education is a concept that RISE strongly believes in, and the organization has been striving hard to achieve this to ensure that no child is left behind. AROH Foundation’s program RISE continues to deliver quality learning to children in the slum communities. The program is currently implemented in Sangam Vihar, Delhi, and is impacting numerous children.

Major festivals were celebrated with religious fervor to promote tolerance and love for all races and creeds. As part of our efforts to inculcate in students the appreciation of and respect for India's rich heritage and diversity, and also to reinforce in them national pride and respect for all, entire RISE celebrates a number of functions including, Eid, Environment Day, Father’s Day, World Music Day, International Yoga Day, Plant Day, Raksha Bandhan, Independence Day, Janmashtami, National Sports Day, etc. Every event & festival at RISE is an opportunity for students to showcase their talents and capabilities and learn new skills.

Mrs. Birbal Meena, the principal at the MCD Primary School was surprised to see the improvement in children who have been enrolled at RISE Centres. Even the parents are indeed happy and feel important with their regular engagement at the centres.

RISE continues to benefit children from the slums with new interventions in extra-curricular activities like juggling and football has contributed greatly to enhance the confidence of children. Declaration events continue to prove that the community is keenly watching the progress made by children who attend RISE centres and has been paving a way for us to involve parents in their children’s learning. Learning from the lessons of this year, RISE continues its efforts in improving the life of economically and mentally backward children and families living in slums.

With your immense support, we have been able to secure the Right to Education of more than 500 children living in extreme conditions of depravity.
We are indeed thankful to your support which has brought a ray of hope in the lives of poor and underprivileged children, who can now dream of a future. The misery writ on their faces is being wiped away to get smiles on their faces. Their little lives are filled with fun and learning, a sense of security and safety which your help has brought.
We look forward to further support from you to pave their path firmly on the road to success and glory.

Learning with fun

Holi celebration at RISE

Like stars are to the sky, so are the children to our world. They deserve to shine!” 
Chinonye J. Chidolue

 

Education is a step by step process of gaining knowledge the aim of education is to bring changes not only in the amount of knowledge gained but also in the abilities to think and to acquire habits, skills and attitude which characterize an individual who is socially accepted and adjusted. However, only bookish knowledge does not serve the purpose of wisdom enhancement especially when our children are dealing with unnecessary stress of poverty, stress, hunger and exploitation. And so AROH emphasizes to inculcate knowledge with fun. Working on the same line, celebration of various festivals, events not only introduces RISE children to the traditional roots of our country, but simultaneously enhances the learning inputs and outcomes.

RISE had a series of events, and it started with the celebration of International Women’s Day to encourage the community women and showed symbolic solidarity for Women Power and the Women's Cause! And then festival of colours, Holi celebration indicated the triumph of goodness over evil power, which inspired chidren to fight all barriers to get what they deserve and achieve their dreams. As soon as the children's face colors turned out, RISE celebrated ‘World Sparrow Day’ an international initiative attempting to save sparrows and another species from extinction, and to raise awareness of the house sparrow and children with all thoughtfulness, with optimized use of waste materials and their innovations, recycled them into sparrow huts and hung them all through the biggest slums of Delhi, Sangam Vihar. As the one event was at its end, other events like ‘World Water Day’, ‘World Health Day’, ‘World Malaria Day’ & ‘Earth Day’,Book Day emerged and were celebrated. AROH Foundation, a proud complier of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, joined hands in the celebration by organizing awareness rallies on water conservation, malaria eradication and spreading awareness against the diseases. Moreover, Health check-ups and follow-ups were ensured with government Clinics were done for children and our educators and were provided with medicines, counseling and hygiene kits free of cost.

The idea to make learning fun has brought back essence of life back to many children at RISE, just like Aman, who was babysitting his younger siblings at home before joining RISE and losing his childhood in the hands of unwanted responsibilities. When he first came to RISE centre, at age of 8 years, he was a quite child who could not even recognise alphabets. After six months, he has improved gradually and has become a chirpy child with improved grades at school too. Many Amans are there in RISE to narrate the stories of learning with fun.

All these would have been just a story if your generous support would have not been with us. With your support,today our 500 children have been led to healthier & brighter future. We are indeed thankful to your support which has brought a ray of hope in the lives of our children, who can now dream of a future. We look forward to further support from you to pave their path firmly on the road to success and glory.
