The School Details

The Name of the School : Sri Sri Ma Anandmayee Upvan Shiksha Samiti.It is a registered charitable Society and has Income Tax Exemption Certificate 80G from Income Tax Department.

It was established on July 1998, with only 7 students.
  Location : It is 10 km from Bhopal Station and 4 km from Bhopal airport.
      Sri Sri Ma Anandmayee Ashram Bairagarh,
      Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh,
      PIN 462030
  Objective of the School : The School is based on Sri Ma's teaching "JAN JANARDAN SEVA" (the service of God in the form of children ).

Near the School is a slum area with a population of about 20,000. The students come from the nearby slum area. There are 6 children in one family. The parents are labourers on daily wages who get employment for barely 15 days in a month. They have large families to support and they do not want to send their children to school but prefer to send them to earn to help the family.

About 90% of their fathers are addicted to drink; some of the father's have a criminal background and about 80% of parents are illiterate.

Almost all the children belong to Scheduled Casts and Scheduled Tribes. Their Mother tongue is Hindi and medium of teaching is Hindi.
  School functioning : A selection committee of five teachers including the Head master go personally to slum areas and persuade their parents to send their children to school. On the assurance that the school will provide free education and free books, copies ,uniforms, midday meal etc, their parents agree to their admission.

Some of the students are also working in the morning and come to school in the afternoon. Most of the children are rag pickers.

The School is running in an unfinished building at ground level; it has 12 rooms (20 feet length and 15 width).

The School is affiliated to the State Government up to class 8.

There are two shifts :
      Morning Shift     : Nursery to K.G. 2nd -175 students (age 3 to 5 years).
      Afternoon Shift : Class 1 to 8 - 470 students (age 6 to 15 years)

The total number of students in the current year is 645.

Curriculum taught is according to State Government schools.

Apart from the curriculum the children are given counseling daily for their personal problems, special periods are given for their cleanliness, as they are living in slums. The teachers do not give them homework as both homework and classwork are done in the school with the help of the teacher - as they have no one to help them in their studies at home.
Facilities provided by the school : Free uniforms, books, Copies ,Pen, pencil, mid day meal, Sweaters in winter. Regular health check up etc.

 Our achievements : Our greatest achievement has been these children who were totally ignored by society. They had a 100% result in the exams and overall development, and 0% drop out rate. Since the establishment of the school we have educated 1000 slum children.

Our Staff
: There are 16 teachers and 6 other staff. Teachers are Graduates and post Graduates and are dedicated to the institution.

Our Budget
: The total Budget for the year 2006-07 is 18 lakhs. The cost of each student is Rs 3,000 per annum.

Our problems
We have very few donors. Therefore we face financial problems throughout the year.
The school is recognised up to class 8 by the State Govt. After passing 8 standard they have difficulty in getting admission to 9 class. Therefore we are anxious that the school is recognised up to class 12.

Due to lack of funds we are unable to provide education to a larger number of students. The school building is incomplete which is a great hindrance.

We hope that you will give us all the necessary support and am looking forward to your early response.

Thanking you

Your sincerly
