Story

Jaunpur development block of Uttarakhand is a socially and economically backward area. Garkhet a small marketplace of the Jaunpur development block is central to more than 25 villages.
Most of these villages are living below the poverty line and don’t even have very basic facilities. Education, unemployment, poor road connectivity, lack of Medical facilities, and distant educational institutions are some of the problems of this small area that have led to massive migration from the village. Common people are leaving their roots in search of better employment opportunities and educational facilities for their children. It is a heresy that Mountains are not capable of holding their water and youth for long which is becoming true for the youth of these villages. We have taken a small initiative to mitigate this problem to some extent by providing the children with good and modern educational facilities at the village level by opening an English medium school “S.F. Memorial school” in 2016. To some extent, we have succeeded in stopping the migration. After the opening of this school, 15 to 20 families have sent their wards to our school, handing over the responsibility of shaping their future. This is just the beginning and we will continue our efforts to solve this problem of migration and provide quality education.
To create awareness about modern education, we are providing free education to every second child of a family and girl child. As villagers are very poor and can’t afford dresses and books. So we provide them with free school dresses and books. A very important step taken by us is providing school bus at a very minimal price for the student of distant areas so that it doesn’t become a burden for their parents. All the financial burden of school facilities is taken care of by us.
  • We are not able to make timely payments to teachers recruited from cities.
  • Lack of furniture for students.
  • Need for basic amenities for students such as – sports equipment, musical instruments, culture, etc.
  • We are currently facing a shortage in Teaching staff and need to hire  B. Ed. certified teachers, and a B. Ed. certified principal.

  • We are duty-bound to increase the level of literacy in rural India but the lack of basic facilities in the village is a big challenge for us.
For the last 6 years, we are running schools with our own resources and fees received from students. We have to pay 90,000 ( about 1268 $ ) every month on our own to run the school.
So the annually total expenses will reach Rs 10,00,000(10 lakh) to run the school properly. Parents of these children are financially very weak and don’t have enough money to pay the fees of their wards. To run the school properly we need strong finance and more resources but at present school, management doesn’t have enough resources and enough funds because of which we are facing problems in running the school properly. But with the new session, there will be an increase in the number of children for which we have to increase our resources also. As our school is growing and we hope it will grow in the future also, but with its growth, the cost of running the institution will also increase.
To fulfill the basic requirement of School we seek your help.
