Challenge

Education in Sawai Madhopur, Rajasthan faces significant challenges. Government schools adhere to rote-memorisation methods and don't provide students with the skills needed for higher-level education. The literacy rate in Sawai Madhopur is 64%, lower than the state average. Girls are often discouraged from attending school, resulting in a 34% gender gap in literacy. The communities we work with are eager to address these issues but lack the necessary resources.

Solution

The Uday Community School, Jaganpura provides children, especially girls, near Ranthambore in Sawai Madhopur an education that teaches them to think critically, ask questions, and enjoy their education. A hallmark of the school day is our morning assemblies, during which the children sing songs, perform plays, and share news from their villages. The Jaganpura girls handball team is state ranked and competes across Rajasthan. Our graduates go on to higher education.

Long-Term Impact

The school will provide quality pre-primary to class 8 education for 200 children every year, empowering them to pursue higher education and improve their socio-economic status. Girls especially will have access to education opportunities and be empowered through school programmes like sports.
