Mission Shakti launched in Milaan School
Mission Shakti launched in Milaan School

Dear friend, 

We're excited to share that our school has reopened from the month of November 2020 for grades 9th to 12th. Our students are happy to have returned back to school and resumed their classes. Along with our students, we're ensuring all safety measures to keep everyone safe and healthy. 

Milaan School is situated in the state of Uttar Pradesh (UP), the most populous state of India with over 200 million people. The state alone accounts for 20% of India’s adolescent girl population and the largest population of children with the majority of them living in underserved communities. 

Unfortunately, the state also accounts for the largest crime rates against women in India. In 2019, Uttar Pradesh alone accounted for nearly 15% of all registered crimes against women in India. For girls in these communities, it's no easy task to reach school, their everyday lives are filled with fear of violence, often many girls drop of education due to this fear. 

Violence against women and girls has a significant toll on not just their wellbeing, but also on their families across generations and on their communities and societies more broadly. Preventing and responding to gender-based violence is a key element in reaching equality between girls and boys, and an essential step to keeping girls in school and alleviating poverty. 

This is why to tackle this harsh reality we have launched 'Mission Shakti' in our school to spread awareness and train girls in self-defense. When girls feel safe and self-reliant they are able to overcome many limitations that are imposed on them and access education. 

Your continued support towards our school enables us to empower and educate children to be educated, healthy, and safer. In this new year of hope and victory, together, let's ensure children from economically challenging families have access to quality education and an environment that helps them to pull their families out of poverty. 

On behalf of our students, teachers, and support staff we wish you and your family a healthy and resilient 2021!

Primary School Classes under constuction

Thank you for supporting our primary school for children from underserved communities in a remote and rural location in India. In these unprecedented times, your donation ensures we are able to provide as many children their right to education. 

Milaan School students are first-generation learners and belong to a community where 84% of the population is under the poverty line.  As more and more children arise from the community, our primary school with a lack of classrooms struggles to accommodate these young hearts. Your support is ensuring we are able to construct more classrooms and not a single child is turned back. 

The pandemic has disrupted the education of millions of children around the world. In India even today 70% of the population resides in rural villages, children in these communities have no access to the Internet or phones to continue education. Unfortunately, the pandemic continues to take a toll in India, and schools remain closed.

In the meantime because of individuals like you, we have taken the opportunity to start constructing new classrooms to welcome our tiny tots back. More classrooms mean we can now welcome more children to our primary school. 

We still have a long way to go, your continuous support will help hundreds of children waiting to join our school! Thank you for being a changemaker :) 

Construction for classes underway!

Republic Day celebration
Republic Day celebration
At Swarchna school we celebrate several occasions and design competitions to actively engage students in a fun learning process and accelerate participation to unleash their creativity.
India celebrated its 71st Republic Day on January 26, 2020. Our students came together joyously to celebrate the occasion with their fellows and teachers. Several activities were planned for the day. The school principal commenced the event and hoisted the national flag, the ceremony was enjoyed and applauded by students. To trigger tiny tot's imagination and enhance their creative skills, we indulged them in painting their own flags.
All students participated in a March past competition and showed a spirit of teamwork and coordination. A few games were also planned and thoroughly enjoyed by students. Sweets were distributed to celebrate the occasion.
Coming together with friends to celebrate such a historic day filled the school staff and students with joy and happiness. The school also celebrated India's freedom fighters and students were engaged through the storytelling of leaders like Mahatma Gandhi and Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru.
We also conducted a General Knowledge Quiz Competition in the month of January. Students from different houses came together to participate in the competition. The competition was organized amongst the primary (5th-8th standard) and secondary (9th-12th standard) section students separately. There were four houses that fought head to head to win the first prize. The enthusiasm and engagement of all the students were extraordinary.   
By designing events and completion we inculcate important skills of leadership, communication, confidence, and courage. The school also provides an interactive space for students to nurture a close bond. It also helps us to break the monotony of classroom learning and keep their young minds involved in creative learning processes. It also helps students to establish and develop friendships with peers to the extent of being actively engaged in peers’ successes  These activities also help in their overall development as a child.
