Parijat Academy is a school that provides free education and residential facility to 500+ students. The school, Parijat Academy, is located in an area comprising of about ten tribal villages and where access to schools is very limited. Uttam Teron has been successful in starting a small scale school to imbibe the value of education among the children. Uttam sees educating the underprivileged children in the neighborhood as a first step in helping the community. He also hopes to start a weaving program for women and some vocational training activities.
Teachers matter. Teachers are more than imparting knowledge. They create a safe environment for learning, imparting life skills, mentor and become role models. They inspire children to continue their learning process and improve their learning outcomes.
Through our 17 years of work we've seen how great teachers can transform the lives of their students and their wider communities for the better. That's why, together, we can work to empower them, raise their status to raise standards of educational support for our underprivileged children.
By adopting a teacher, you enable a good teacher to reach out to 512 underprivileged children that need educational support to complete their schooling years. Without good teachers, this is not possible. By Adopting a teacher campaign you ensure that every child, no matter what their background, gets a good education by having acces to a good teacher.
