A strive for progress, not perfection

Connecting children with Environment

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.

Every child matters, every moment counts

RISE celebrates Republic day
RISE celebrates Republic day

As the year 2018 dusks, the festive atmosphere never really settles and RISE centers starts gearing up for Christmas and New Year celebrations, which causes high SPIRITS in everyone. RISE resolve to make this year more productive and helpful for our under-privileged kids as the aim of it is not only to provide quality of knowledge to the children but also to develop good habits, skills & attitude in every kid. AROH thus believes and helps in the “eradication” of gender inequality & “empowering” effect of education. The ethical responsibility of RISE is to consider, promote, balance and respond to all aspects of the student, including their physical, social, emotional, academic and spiritual needs.              

To set a perfect example of secularism, we at RISE celebrate all the festivals. Over the past month, in classrooms throughout RISE, all educators & students of all the centers have been working on special activities focused on promoting student understanding about Christmas Day & New Year and showcasing their own interpretations of these celebrations by organizing class parties, dance sessions, fun and sports activities. Children had so much of joy while celebrating both of the festivals this time.

As the New Year Celebration ends, another auspicious occasion of Lohri was celebrated with fervor. Students dressed in traditional Punjabi attires & performed on songs around the bonfire. In RISE the festive atmosphere never really settles and thus festivals keep on falling in continuation. The students of RISE celebrated Republic Day with patriotic fervor and pride and gave a benevolent touch to the entire celebration by sharing their joy. Adding more good impacts to this month, a free “Medical Health Check-up” was organized for the students of RISE. Children went under Health Check-up programme and got themselves treated and awared towards various health threats and its treatment.

Furthermore, RISE specifies that ‘one action’ can affect the child in multiple dimensions and thus we believe ‘Development is Multi-dimensional’.  Multi-dimensional measures deepen and broaden our understanding of child well-being and inform us of areas of neglect. Let’s take up an example of a child named as Meena. Meena is an empowered child today who has a spark in her eyes. She, along with her family, moved from Maharashtra to Delhi when her father lost his job last year. She was enrolled in a Government school, but her education started suffering due to language and cultural differences in the new city. Meena’s parents could not afford private tuition due to poor family condition. Once, Meena met one of the educators at RISE center, and she was thrilled when our educator took her to meet other RISE children. “Now Meena is a bright student in her class and spends time in studies at home too”, says her mother. Before coming to RISE, Meena was an introvert and thus fears while reading and taking part in any kind of activity happened in the class. Various extra-curricular activities and engagement with children helped her in bridging the cultural differences and Meena quickly started performing better in her class at her formal school.  She dances and draws beautifully. She actively participated in NGO Mela Contest, in dance and poster making competitions. She also has started learning things herself and her family is very much satisfied and happy to see the progress. They even got enrolled their other daughters in RISE. Meena and her family are very happy and thank RISE and thus they want their all children to stay connected with RISE.

RISE considers that there is a story behind every child. There is story of misery and drudgery, but dreams of a better future! We firmly believe that a small help goes a long way in giving someone a chance in life! Giving a child his childhood and his future! We would like to offer our sincere gratitude to you for your generosity and commitment to helping build our children’s future. We hope that your support to these kids would keep flowing to help us shape their future and give them a better life. Once again, thanks a lot for all your support.  We hope you to continue investing in the future of global development.
