“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!

Education is a pretty broad concept that surpasses the four walls of a classroom. The core aim of education is to foster all round development of a child. All round development essentially means intellectual, physical, moral, sensible and social development. To fulfil these objectives, there is a prime need of striking a balance between syllabus, curriculum, books and also co-curricular activities beyond that. Co-Curricular activities are those which are undertaken side by side with the curricular activities. It gives the students an opportunity to develop particular skills and exhibit their non-academic abilities. Activities such as music, art or drama, participating in school sports team, school debating team or student newsletters all comprise of co-curricular activities. They are the true and practical experiences gained by students by their own learning. 

At RISE, the importance of co-curricular activities in education is realised with the teaching curriculum RISE centres follow. Last few months saw RISE centres engage in multiple co-curricular activities to engage the students. In January, AROH Rise centre undertook a cultural event cum excursion trip in association with Akhil Bhartiya Gayatri Pariwar to JNL stadium. An all day long trip saw students witness the famous JLN auditorium, their cultural events, speeches, behavioural tactic training to tackle day to day life and other struggles. Performances by many children were made. Children also went to attend Food Festival at the JLN stadium only. They enjoyed many delicious delicacies and dance along the tunes being played by open bands at the garden. After having lunch and enjoying various cultural, funs, sports and food activities, all of us moved ahead to visit a temple nearby.

RISE centres also celebrated India’s 68th Republic Day on 26th January, 2017. RISE Team with 500 children, educators and slum community members were seen in full patriotic spirits. Republic Day Celebration was organized at all RISE centres Sangam Vihar and Devli, South Delhi. Starting from flag hoisting ceremony, students of RISE expressed their spirit of unity and secularism by participating in drawing competition, chorus singing of patriotic songs like Ae Mere Watan Ke Logo and singing and dancing competitions followed by speeches that reminded the students of the sacrifices made by the freedom fighters. The students were also awarded prizes for best participation to reward the top performers and motivate others.

Apart from the visits and celebrations, children were also introduced to the scholarship programs which RISE centres in association with Akhil Bhartiya Gayatri Pariwar which provided the best performing students an opportunity to realise their dreams. AVGP has enrolled all over RISE children for yearlong activity program. Around 50 well performing children are engaged for scholarship exams which would allow them to tackle hurdles of financial crisis and continue education with obstacles. Children are given books and educators are being trained to prepare well for the screenings. Children were also introduced to using OMR sheet which will be a common practice when these children would appear for higher exams in future. In numerous ways, these scholarships have been tailored for the purpose of ensuring that each student may avail crucial push during their educational journeys, depending on their personal aspirations.

With your continuing support, RISE fraternity is growing by leaps and bounds and RISE kids are looking forward to their bright future.
