“Guru govind dou khade kaake laage paun…Bali hari guru aapne govind diyo batay”
Guru is greater than Govind or GOD (in spiritual form) because, a teacher is the person who guides us and explains the pathway to reach to that Eternal power. So we must need a living master to realize that eternal power within us.
Teacher – Student ratio in India is very dismal, 1:50. Deep down into our education system, we would come across lot of startling facts about the quality of these teachers, infrastructure of the schools, quality of education, gender divide, rural-urban divide, etc.
A recent survey of learning outcomes of school children reported in the Annual Survey of Education – Rural revealed that about half of those in Class 5th could read only class 2nd texts and the proportion of kids who could solve a simple division sum in class 5th had declined. A study by the National University of Educational Planning & Administration found that of the 47 lakh elementary school teachers, nearly 25% have not studied beyond the secondary level. Another quarter have just completed their higher/ senior secondary level. Untrained and demotivated teachers do no good to our education system.
Realizing the fact that good, educated, motivated and well-qualified teachers form an important pillar of our education system, Aashayein Foundation has decided to appoint more teachers in Shikshana Abhiyana schools. Aashayein is already paying the salaries of 3 teachers in Arundhati Primary School and hope to appoint few more in other schools. For this, we expect your support and cooperation.
You can help us in following ways:
• Connect good, qualified, educated, motivated teachers to Aashayein Foundation
• Sponsor the salary of a teacher
We would provide you performance reports of teachers and students, regular visits to schools, interaction with teachers and students, etc.
