BUDGET SCHOOL PROGRAMME
Jharkhand being a backward state in terms of literacy having literacy rate of just 67.2 %, takes the state to the rank of 25th in the list of Indian states. The very reason for this backwardness is that, since times, the maximum parts of the state have been overlooked because of which people here got diverted towards the wrong ways of demanding their rights like Naxalism and other criminal activities. The girls of this state have the highest rate of getting trafficked and indulging into prostitution, the reason being the poverty as well as lack of education among the community. Even government agencies found to be ineffective in bringing some development in the interior villages of this state due to prevailing Naxalist activities. Due to the presence of schools which are mostly run on an adhoc basis and have no vision towards the future of the children, the children felt themselves more comfortable with the illegal ways of earning livelihood. Moreover, parents also found themselves helpless in preventing their children to get involved into these sorts of activities.
The objective of this programme is to set up English medium schools in underprivileged villages and giving access of basic education to the children. The curriculum which is being developed has integration of the regional cultural diversity within the syllabus of children, so that the cultural touch might not get faded in the process of getting educated. The school can be a center for the following:
