!! Educational upliftment of backward classes !!

Minority and their social backwardness has become matter of discussion among the educated Indians after release of Sachar committee report. Government and other organizations are working on educational front and their works are appreciable. Every individual has responsibility to work for their society to work for the 'education'. Lack of education and unemployment rate creates frustration among minorities. As a result, parents do not become interested to send their wards to schools or colleges. Uneducated people are mislead easily and create social stigma.

 

If we want empowered India, we have to educate people. I have selected my village school whose adjacent area is full of educationally backward people from Muslim and Hindu communities and  maximum of them can be classified as poor or lower middle class families.

 

Effort

  • I started scholarship program to the 60% marks holders. The students will score 60% marks in 10th board exam will get some prize/scholarship.
  • In 2005 and 2006 the number of first division holders becomes 5 and 11 respectively. I have not imposed any condition for the scholarships on the basis of cast, creed, religion etc, the sole goal is to educational uplift of the backward classes.
  • A very small effort and a very little amount (merely 500Rs to each first division holders as prize money) has bring moral boost to the student.
  • My friends in Korea, India, USA and other locations contributed as well as they supported morally to continue this effort.
  • Every year a small function is arranged and prizes are distributed to the students.
  • Motivate the students and parents about job and necessity of higher education.
  • Try to help students to send to professional education schools and help to get job.

The contributors to this scholarship:

  • Dr Abdus Samad, R&D Engineer,University of Aberdeen, UK
  • Dr Mubassir A. Ansari, Professor, Inha University, Korea

  • Mr Mohib Ahmad, MBA, USA
  • Mr Shamshad Hussain, Scientist, Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO)

 Future plan

  • To increase the number of schools and scholarship plan to other standard students too.
  • To create one TRUST.
  • To visit school and communicate with students. Inform all teachers, students and parents about our mission.
  • Sponsor one child plan: Any person can fund a child so that his/her educational can be beard by the person. This should be by direct contact to student and the funding person.

School profile

The school initially was 'High Madrasa' and in 1967 it was converted to 'High School' and recognized by West Bengal Board of Secondary Education. Number of 60% marks holders in board exams was very less.
