Empower with education- Sashaktikaran

Current Reality:
As per Census 2011:
1.The state records fourth lowest literacy rate.
2. The state records lowest female literacy rate.
3.As per ASER Report 2016, only 11% children in government schools can do basic subtraction which is the third lowest.

Some Roadblocks:
1.Lack of access to education.
2.Low  parental investment.
3.Lack of support for the teachers.
4.Lack of motivation among teachers about the future of children.
There is a vicious circle of poor quality of education leading to conservative mindsets and vice versa, which is stopping youth in Rajasthan to reach their true potential.

Our Belief:
We at Sashaktikaran believe, for Rajasthan to truly prosper; we need to change the restricting mind-set of the society with a growth mind-set.
We aim to achieve this by providing excellent education to the future of Rajasthan.
While backward mind-set enslaves, education empowers.

Our Solution:
Deep dived experience of education system while teaching at a government school during  Teach For India fellowship, has led us to a realisation that a teacher or a parent alone can not positively impact learning standards of a child in school because school is a network of students, parents, teachers and the administrators.
All of them collectively come together to envision, learn and improve, until then the puzzle of education is extremely challenging to solve.

We want to create schools into learning system where everyone is collectively committed towards a collective vision and constantly learning to improve themselves for the best of children studying in school.

Project 2017

We have started our first pilot with one of the low income schools run by Raghukul Shiksha Samiti in Jaipur. In the next one year, we aim to achieve following goals:
  1. A collective school vision :Through multiple discussions between all the members of school network.
  2. 60%+ increase in number of students. This will happen by taking classroom impact to the community through monthly newsletters created by our children and final end of the year showcase.
  3. Our School Head would be consciously working towards investing her team in the School Quality Enhancement. This will happen with constant Leadership Development Conversations with the Principal.
Our work in this school will help us learn and decide our strategy further. We will create strong proof points about our work which will help us work with other low income and government schools in Rajasthan.

For our project this year we have started this fund raising campaign. The money raised from this campaign will be used to create a learning atmosphere in school.

Dear Supporters,

We finally have a school vision, our very own school pledge and prioritized values and life skills that we would want to focus on this year.

Our collective vision:
We asked our parents, teachers and students about their vision. Collectively this is what we all aspire for:
Three Rs - To raise respectful, responsible and rational leaders through an education that encourages them to dream, brings out their interest, is connected to their day to day life, enables them to make a well informed and well thought decision between right and wrong and makes them more aware of themselves as well as their surroundings.

 Our School Pledge
Based on our school vision one of our change makers Shivani wrote a School Pledge which we all (Teachers and students alike) speak in the assembly everyday these days.

That's how our Saturdays look like! Non-academic but a lot of learning. :D


Pictures in the beginning: Our kids did a nukkad natak on importance of education in the community on the occasion of Independence Day  ; Pictures in the middle: To celebrate DaanUtsav  our kids gave baaiji an early off by cleaning the whole school on their own. Through this they learnt to be responsible and realised how happiness can be derived from making others happy. ; Picture at the end: On the occasion of Diwalli our kids made Rangoli class wise and decorated Diyas. We celebrated a colorful and happy Diwali in our school.  And on Eid our kids hugged each other and wished Eid Mubarak.

With these updates, we take this opportunity to thank everyone who has been contributing in this journey. Gratitude can never be expressed in few words but here is a little attempt. :)

Please help us raise the funds and make this school an excellent one!

Dear Supporters,

Hello!We take this opportunity to thank all of you for the contribution that you have made to this initiative. We are taking our first steps towards our vision and your support at this point means a lot to us.Recently we conducted a 15 day Training Program called Anubhav in Geeta Ashram Children’s School. In one of the school teacher’s words: “Anubhav meri zindagi ka sabse acha anubhav tha. Aaj tak main bus subjects padhana jaanti thi. Ab mujhe bache padhana aa gaya.” In Dimple’s words: “I have lived in Jaipur all my life but 15 days at Anubhav were the best days I have ever spent in Jaipur.” Here are some glimpses from Anubhav.After these 15 days we visited the community to understand our context better. And then we started school from 1st July. Here are a few glimpses from our first week in school.
There are many changes that have happened in school since then. Hear it from our children only.
