"Ours is a battle not for wealth or for power. It is a battle for freedom. It is a battle for the reclamation of the human personality."Dr. B.R. Ambedkar, Indian Dalit Hero and Father of Indian constitution
India is the biggest democratic country in the world with more than 1.2 billion people. India gained Independence over 70 years ago. Many things have changed in India since its Independence but not Dalit’s and poor people lives.
Dalits and poor want their children to be educated in English-language schools, recognizing that the greatest opportunities in Indian society and around the world are offered to those Indians that have been educated in English. But due to poverty, they are not able to send their children to high paid expensive schools where they learn English. In most cases there are no quality English medium schools in the rural areas for rural poor children. So there is no opportunity for poor children to be educated in English medium schools. Poor people’s lives will not be changed unless they are educated. A quality English medium education will change their lives forever.
"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world" Nelson Mandela
Children are the future of a nation. For an emerging and developing country like India, development of Dalit underprivileged and poor children holds the key to the progress of the nation itself.
To address the need, in 2012 June we have established an English Medium School called LIGHT English Medium High School. We have 187 children in the school.We are hoping to build children ready to face tomorrow’s challenges, while being proud citizens involved in the county’s decision making. We want to see children participating in the development of this country and world if possible.Our school is open for all irrespective of caste, creed or religion.
