Education (Annual Report 13 - 14)
Deepalaya's education programmes are carefully designed to reflect its vision. Apart from providing quality education to underprivileged children at an affordable rate, we have also been successful in creating a stimulating environment where a child's dream is nurtured and merged with the right values to create self realization.
A challenging year
The 2013 academic session began with a severe blow to the education of the underprivileged. The Right To Education Act forced several NGO-run schools to close operations, thereby increasing drop-out rate and decreasing enrollment rate among students. The Deepalaya schools most affected by this act are DSSC, RJRND, and DSGK.
However, despite an early set-back, the rest of our schools showed tremendous improvement throughout the year. No student of any school was detained and all schools achieved a 100% result.
Deepalaya schools ensured regular attendance among all students, the overall attendance was 81.1%.
DSKE was upgraded to Senior Secondary (Arts & Commerce) in August, 2013 and Class XI started on 1st September, 2013 with 20 students
300 books were purchased for the library in DSKE and a school library in DST was set up with support from sponsors
Focus was put on computer-aided learning and computer classes were initiated. Modern tools such as CDs and Audio/Video aids were used to teach children.
Teachers paid an increased emphasis on English and every day taught two new words to their students to help increase their vocabulary
Teaching through technology
Smart Boards at our schools make the
classrooms interesting and fun.

Changed communities – Mrs. Pooja Devi and Km. Simren
|Mrs. Pooja Devi is a single mother who works in a factory and sends all three of her children to school. She encourages them to pursue their dreams and not begin contributing to the family income. Mrs. Devi's youngest daughter – Km. Simren is a class III student at DSSC who excels in both academics and cultural activities. This mother-daughter duo is the perfect example of how far the thinking of the underprivileged has changed with regards to education.|
