Summary

Education empowers young leaders to establish successful careers and give back to their communities. FOREFRONT is constructing a primary school in Kolluru, Andhra Pradesh, India, that will serve 400 local children per year with a focus on building skilled and active change makers in their communities. FOREFRONT's primary school will support students in realizing holistic success in the short and long-term by fostering their critical thinking skills, socio-emotional skills, and healthy habits.

Challenge

India is among the top five nations in the world for out-of-school children of primary school age. Even more, 43% of children drop out of school before upper-primary school. Due to a lack of access, affordability, and awareness, children in rural areas are unable to receive the education to escape poverty. Unfortunately, this has a disproportionate impact on women and girls. More than 50 percent of girls fail to enroll in school, and those that do are likely to drop out by the age of 12.

Solution

Education empowers young leaders to establish successful careers and give back to their communities. It is the goal of FOREFRONT to develop a school that is accessible to and inclusive of children of all backgrounds. Not only will the school foster students' critical thinking and socio-emotional skills, but innovative teaching methods will help all children have ample opportunities to take risks and approach their problems creatively. The school will also seek for gender equity in enrollment.

Long-Term Impact

FOREFRONT International School will build up life-long thinkers who will grow up to become leaders in their communities. Not only will FOREFRONT invest directly in up to 400 students each year, but the school will serve as a space for the community to meet, learn, and engage with one another. Through this space, FOREFRONT will promote proper hand washing, healthy eating, and adult education.
