Spreading love & care for marginalized and vulnerable kids from last 23 years...........

Who we are and What we do

For 23 years C.F. Andrews Memorial English School  ( In the name of famous "Deen Bandhu" Charles Freer Andrews, "Friend of India" as named by Mahatma Gandhi ) Tharpakhna Ranchi, India - The home place of Mahendra Singh Dhoni, has been catering to the education and health of nearby low-income community. [ For more about C.F Andrews; ]

The school was inaugurated on 7 August 1997 to cater education for the marginalized and vulnerable sections of the society with an affordable fees structure where they are asked to pay the fees accordingly to the family income. There are no compulsion to parents for minimum fee payments.

We have an active program(  'नहे पांव बढ़ते कदम' ) for specially challenged and differently abled Children With Special Needs ( CWSN ). Here are glimpses of few of the happy CWSN students -

We are very successful to create an enthusiasm for Olympiad events amongst all the students through participatory training in subjects like English, Science, Computer and Mathematics. We are able to improve their analytical, reasoning, application, and problem-solving skills for any competitive exams.
( The Olympiads promote the study of aforementioned subjects to identify the talents and help them to shine in competitive exams for bright careers.)

What Stopped the school

However, the limited resources in terms of fees collected came to a halt since mid-April last year 2020 and school overall started facing financial hardship. The school's daily academic and co-curricular activities came to a grinding halt since 17th March 2020 with statewide lockdown announcement.

In this adverse global situation and new normal of online education, even for the basic level, it has really become challenging to carry forward the "FLAG of EDUCATION" which we at the C. F. Andrews Memorial English School of Ranchi, India had been following whole heartedly where we believed that any societal prejudices, superstitions, discriminations, disparities, gender, religion, caste, class, community and economic status should not be a hinder for the smart and needy students.

What Students Need

To win in the next normal, we, the social representative of the school went to the field, spent weeks to identify the top most functional & emotional needs of the student and teacher’s which emerged out clear & loud that -

  •     An internet connection and a supported device is must to access the online classes  for kids of around 100 families who don't have smartphones yet.
  •      Out of 214 students we are seeking help for 100 others have been taken care off.
  •      "Fear" and "Sadness" are at present core emotions due to uncertainties to continue their kid's education for digital dependencies.

How Your Money will be used

Any support raised from the campaign will be used in a transparent manner :-
1.  For purchase of mobile phones for online classes which will be donated to selected 100 students who are not able to buy them.
2.  For providing educational stationeries to selected 100 students whose families are facing acute financial crisis.
3.  To adjust the gaps in the fees which stopped coming from students/ families because of their crisis.

Your generous support will be provided now for the dire need of mobile devices, and internet connections to start online classes for them who stopped their education or attending online class.
Subsequent funds will be provided in multiple forms like scholarships, procurement of educational & podcasting materials, monthly miscellaneous expenses and so on as we can fulfill the target.
