The School Details

The Name of the School:

SHRI SHRI MA ANANDMAYEE UPVAN SHIKSHA SAMITI. It is a registered charitable Society and has Income Tax Exemption Certificate 80G from Income Tax Department, and has a FCRA certificate from Govt of India to receive foreign funds. It was established on July 1998, with only 7 students. The school is recognized by the State Govt up to class 10.

Location :

It is 10 km from Bhopal Station and 4 km from Bhopal airport.
Shri Shri 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 Headmaster 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, photocopies, 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 a 3-storey building, whose area is 9,000 ft; it has 15 rooms (20 feet length and 15 width).

The School is affiliated to the State Government up to class 10.

There are two shifts :
Morning Shift : Nursery to K.G. 2nd -150 students (age 3 to 5 years).
Afternoon Shift : Class 1 to 10 – 400 students (age 6 to 16 years)

The total number of students in the current year is 550.
Curriculum taught is according to State Government schools and the medium is Hindi.

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, photocopies ,pen, pencil, midday 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 5000 slum children.

Our Staff :

There are 20 teachers and 10 non-teaching staff. Teachers are Graduates and post Graduates and are dedicated to the institution.

Our Budget :

The total Budget for the year 2015-16 is 30 lakhs. The cost of each student is Rs 5,000 per annum.

Our problems :

We have very few donors. Therefore we face financial problems throughout the year. We are planning to upgrade the school to class 12. Due to lack of funds we are unable to provide education to a larger number of students. We require an expansion of the old building to provide a good standard of quality education.
We hope that you all will give us all the necessary support and are looking forward to your early response. We are not getting any grant from the Government or any institution.

Thanking you
Your sincerely
