Ruchika Social Service Organisation has been running the project “Give a smile to 3000 slum children to attend school" very successfully. Keeping in view the Right to Education Act 2009 (RTE), it is striving to enroll all slum children into the government schools.  In the Primary Remedial Standards (Standard – I to IV) 1338 students have been registered during this period of which 513 are studying in Std. – I, 308 in Std. – II, 272 in Std. - III and 245 in Std. – IV.  In Elementary Standards (Standard – V to VIII) a total number of 555 student have been registered. Out of the total 1893 students, 1580 students have been enrolled and studying into the nearest government schools.   Rest 313 students are yet to be admitted.

In Remedial Classes the average attendance has increased by 10 %.  Interest among students and community have been noticed. As per the observation of the  Government school Head Masters the attendance of these children has increased by   10  % .   However more than 95 % of the students of remedial classes are attending the school regularly. We are trying our best to check the  dropouts completes. The child attempts to drop out from our remedial centre or from the schools are attended to immediately by our teachers. The parents are counseled and the child is counseled and the child is re-integrated into the school system. We are planning to maintain ZERO dropout rates in our schools.

As per the recent test results significant improvement in performance in Grade 2 and 4 have been noticed.

  • In Grade 3, average performance of students in English is 58 % and Math is 44 %
  • Average performance of students of Grade 5 in English is 33 % and in Math is 28 %. Overall learning levels of both Math and English are low.
  • Average performance of students of Grade 7  is 26 % in English and 33 % in Math. Overall learning levels of both Math and English are low.

Our next plan is to bring significant improvement in the competency level of the students by adopting innovative methodologies. The in depth teachers training on methodologies is also very essential which will be organized in near future.

The project will give a smile in the faces of the marginalized children with the open hearted support of the donors. We can continue the program with your support till all children are enrolled into the school and are retained and the level of performance has increased up to the level of their counterparts in the government schools. The project will be sustained only when a positive environment is created in the slum community to educate all children as their rights.
