In this period of unprecedented economic prosperity, a section of Indian population remains to be living in abject poverty, illiteracy, ignorance, and above all, under the thralldom of the landlords and the people who can control their lives from birth to death.† Their historic forceful deprivation of all necessities of good life handicapped them in all spheres of life. In this knowledge centric age, education plays a major part in individualís progress. The deprival of this basic human right is the root cause of their sufferings.
In India, as any developed country, education is of two types, public and private. Ignorance of common people, coupled with negligence of political leaders; public education became the causality. When India can produce world-class professionals through its elite IITs/IIMs, it is also a breeding ground for children who canít read or write even after spending 10 years in school. Primary education, the base of educational foundation is the most neglected in India and the victims are the Dalits and other marginalized societies who do not have means to study in private and elite schools. So, these communities live in economic deprivation when the country is experiencing 8-9% economic growth.
It is not an exaggeration to say that given an opportunity and right kind of education, these children can fare as good as any other kind with prosperous background. So, with an intention to give these children a better education, FFEI identified a few schools that can impart quality education to Dalit children with confessional fees. It costs around Rs.5,000 Ė Rs.15,000 ($125 - $375) a year to send a child to a good school.
This is how our system works:
So, we are looking for individuals/organizations who share our vision to help one or more children from socially, economically, and educationally backward families to attend a good school and to transform their lives.
