Letter from our Director Dear Donors, Volunteers, Friends, Well Wishers and the entire team of Vidya & Child,

We bring to you the Annual Report for the year 2011 – 2012. (http://issuu.com/vidyanchild/docs/vncannual_report_2011_-_2012) 700 families, 1200+ children, 100+ teachers and volunteers, Vidya & Child has come a long way from the time we started, teaching only 2 children with a small dream of making a difference. Today we have children who have started supporting their

families financially,

children who have finished school and children who are in school and dream of carving out a space for themselves. There are siblings who look upto their older ones for they have shown a path - A path wherein if one sustains oneself despite all challenges to complete school education and moves on to further studies it will lead towards a better career option.

We have come to believe that through a process of sustained and intensive effort

towards

long term relationship building with the child and his / her family, a child can be given an opportunity for education, where the parent can believe that the child’s interests are being looked after and that we will continue to offer the opportunity as long as it takes for the child to be independent. Our children have been able to achieve many milestones that are varied in nature - - -

a child who has never been to a regular school is financially

supporting her family and pursuing B.B.A after completing XII through open school; a child who has started working continues to come to Vidya & Child to learn Tabla and pursue his training (riyaaz); a child who lost her father yet due to her mother’s patience and energy is continuing to study and dreams of becoming an engineer; a child who was living in isolation due to inferiority complex works in a BPO and financially supports her family. This has been possible due to your sustained belief and support.

-3-


It takes 12 years for a child to complete school education; it takes atleast another 2 – 4 years after that to be able to acquire a skill in a field which will make the child’s life meaningful in the years ahead. Vidya & Child believes very strongly that it needs to be there for this period in the child’s life; to enable the parent to provide the support for the child to avail of the benefits of the education process that exist in the country today. Hence it is imperative that we continue our programmes and provide long term opportunities for growth and development to all our children

This year starting April 2012 has been a critical year for us. It is a year where we aim to consolidate our programmes & processes and improve on the quality to ensure the following: 

Every child continues to remain on the learning curve – this will be done through a more comprehensive assessment process for each child

Every child in Class III and above is given the opportunity to explore himself /herself and get exposed to atleast one Creative Activity – Kathak, Tabla, Theatre, Music, Art, Film Making ….

Every child above Class IX is mentored to choose a suitable career option and we facilitate the process of research, preparation, admission …

We strengthen our model wherein a dialogue exists with every child, this will provide the support required for child to face and overcome challenges – related to environment, age and family.

We need your support to build and expand on what we have built so far, to strengthen our processes, to deepen our relationships with children and to continue to provide further growth opportunities. Your belief in us makes us believe more, as we look forward to you being with us in the years ahead Warm Regards Supriya Akhaury Director Project - Vidya & Child Jayaprakash Narayan Memorial Trust

Beliefs Each child’s insatiable energy, determination to succeed and ever smiling faces drives us to improve on our inputs and reinforces our beliefs; Every child has a right to be educated Every child has capabilities that need to be explored and channelised Every child dreams and yearns to learn, to make a place for himself in society We in Vidya & Child can through our small support help them explore their talents to translate into an improved and meaningful life.

About Vidya & Child Brief History Vidya & Child started with 2 children and now works with over 1,200 children across 5 locations through its non formal and after school support centres. There are over 150 children who have been mainstreamed into formal schools and over 30 children have finished Class XII and are all pursuing higher studies. These are children who belong to socio-economically marginalised sections of society, majority of them have parents who are illiterate/semi-literate and work as domestic servants, industrial workers, rickshaw-pullers, street vendors, plumbers and carpenters.

Over the last thirteen years we have been able to connect with the parents so that they now send their daughters to study and learn with us at an early age. A strong parent interaction programme and intervention in various issues faced by children and their families have helped us tremendously in our learning as an organisation and has also strengthened our bond with the parents. Over our long association with them, parents have not only accepted the importance of education in the life of their child but are also willing to provide the long term support required by the child, including the girl child.

Today, we work through the complete educational life cycle of the child starting from Primary level schooling and work with the child for the next 12 -15 years to ensure that the child not only completes his education but is equipped to make his life meaningful in the years ahead. Our academic programmes are supported by an active Arts & Performing Arts Programme and a very intensive Life Skills Programme. -8-

Teachers and Staff Our journey would have been incomplete without their passion, commitment and wholehearted support to the organization at all times. Today we are a team of over 100 members of staff that includes teachers and administrative staff that cater to over 1200 children. Internal Processes Documentation - Process documents being made for each of the programmes and internal audits conducted so as to review and make improvisations where required. HR Practices - A well defined recruitment process is followed by a well—structured induction and orientation programme where roles and responsibilities are well defined for each staff member. A formal appraisal system is being followed for all. Capacity Building - right enablement and empowerment of each individual associated with Vidya & Child is extremely important to expand and improve. Vidya & Child believes in training its staff across different aspects that are required to work in this environment. We work towards Perspective building, Skill building and providing exposure visits to other NGO’s into education and training.

-9-


Capacity Building Capacity building at Vidya & Child is conducted across different levels as we believe that right enablement and empowerment of each individual associated with Vidya & Child. Capacity Building has been designed in parallel with perspective building, skill building and creating opportunities for exposure for Teachers, Core Group and Programme Heads. Workshops that involve activities, movie reviews, real life case studies help initiate discussions in a positive manner. Trainings and workshops by individuals and organisations external to Vidya & Child help bring a fresh perspective and approach.

Perspective Building We believe that its not just results that are important but the process of achieving those results is equally important. The perspective with which any action is taken generates clarity of thought and purpose and helps one deal with any situation or task. To achieve this one needs to understand and appreciate the core beliefs and objectives of the organisation, the value system that enables an individual to think and act and the impact of external environment on our actions. Skill Building Skills should not become a limiting factor in our ability to expand, reach out to more children and the community at large so as to bring about effective change. Skill development requirements have been mapped for each level so as to enable and empower individuals to respond to organization’s vision. Exposure

Exposure to other organisations helps in raising awareness about self and about the world outside, the challenges faced by those working in similar areas of work. Exposure visits also helps in increasing the capacity of an individual to take initiative. -10-


Partners We are extremely grateful to all our grant makers, institutional partners and corporate partners for their belief in Vidya & Child. It is this belief which helps us explore, experiment and reach out to more and more children in need of quality education. Their invaluable contributions over the years has been the key to our growth and success. Individuals—Donors & Volunteers A few individuals in 1998 decided to be agents of change themselves - their belief in our objectives and trust in our work helped Vidya & Child be what it is. We are fortunate to have a good strength of individuals who as donors and volunteers are our well wishers and help us spread the word around.

Vidya & Child believes in working from within the community. All our project centres are in the basti or village from where we work. This helps us stay connected with the people we work for ie the children, their parents and their families and their neighbourhood. It allows us to understand and appreciate the day-to-day struggles that our children and their parents have to face in order to just survive. Despite their hardships their efforts, enthusiasm and belief in a better tomorrow in a way humbles us and in another makes us work harder. Our Project Centres 

211 Careers post Class XII

The actual outcome of education in a person’s mind, person’s life and in society as a whole cannot be assessed or monitored but can only be seen in the overall development of the world around. At Vidya & Child, each child is given the opportunity to explore and understand oneself and decide for a suitable career with the help of mentors and career counselors. The approach therefore in not vocation centric but child-centric.

7 children pursuing Engineering from institutes like NIT Trichy, NIT Rourkela

2 children pursuing GNIIT course from NIIT

1 child pursuing a course in Cosmetology from VLCC Institute

Children pursuing varied courses like , Bachelor of Business Administration, Fine Arts, Bachelor of Social Work, 3D Animation and teacher training from reputed institutes and colleges. -13-


Our Belief

We strongly believe that the purpose of education is to build a platform for a child to: 

To learn and grow

To explore and identify with himself / herself

To become a self aware individual with ability to make his / her own ‘right’ decisions in all facets of life

To become aware of his / her surroundings (family, friends, community, country and the world at large)

To continue learning and identify a career path of his or her interest area through which he / she can sustain himself and his / her family

To enjoy the whole process and experience of learning

It is each child’s right to get an opportunity to explore himself / herself completely through this process and experience. With this belief we have developed an organization that makes efforts to address each distinct element mentioned above. Each element mentioned above cannot be looked at in isolation.

The Academic Process Non Formal Education Programme - The Academic Process

The whole process has been structured so as to provide valuable insights as feedback to the process - An internally developed level based curriculum helps teachers to engage deeply with children. Learning objectives are defined for each lesson and chapter trainings are done every month to ensure effective delivery by the teachers. Observations, Academic Reviews and Assessments are tools to address issues of implementation and measure achievement of learning objective for every child. The results and feedback thus generated necessitates further improvements in the process. Key features of the Non Formal Education Programme academic process are – Internally Developed Level-based Curriculum – self-paced, non-threatening learning environment for ‘high achievers’ as well as for ‘slow learners’. This also helps us in ensuring that children who are over-aged can be fast tracked and they complete their primary education at a right age. Training – Teachers Manuals, Lesson Plans and Worksheets made. Chapter-wise trainings done to ensure more effective delivery. Observation & Academic Reviews – Tools to assess difficulties faced while teaching and plan ahead. Scientific Assessments – Test papers designed to measure Learning Objectives. Results analyzed and concern areas addressed through remedial classes or improvement in teaching methods.

After School Support Programme - The Academic Process Vidya & Child facilitates admission of children into the formal school system after the child completes Class V with our School Support Programme. This process involves supporting a child through school, constantly evaluating and upgrading the quality of education being received by the child.

Key features of the After School Support Programme educational process are 

Mainstreaming - The schools are carefully selected by our board with respect to the quality of education they provide and their social commitment towards the cause of the less privileged. After school hours every child spends 4 hours at our centre every day. This time is spent in reinforcing academic concepts as well as in extracurricular activities.

Life Skills workshops in 2011-12 Workshop - Valuing As part of Life Skills Workshop on ‘Values - Valuing Relationships, Valuing Communities, Valuing Effort’, 48 children of Class IX and above went for an outstation trip to an organization called SIDH (Society for Integrated Development of the Himalayas), Kempty, near Mussoorie.

Workshop - Cross-road Inspection The children who have crossed the age of 15 years and are studying in Class X and beyond are at standing at an important cross-road of life. Each one has had his / her own set of struggles and challenges in past 10 years. This struggle and fight has its own impact on the minds of the children. It is important that at every stage we can introspect and identify with our strengths and value the same. The workshop involved video clippings, discussions and Q & A’s

Workshop— Know Thy Self Awareness is the first step in the process of creation. As we grow in self awareness, we will better understand why we feel what we feel and why we behave as we behave. That understanding then gives us the opportunity and freedom to change those things we’d like to change about ourselves and create the life we want consciously and actively. The workshop involved various group activities with active participation by each child.

Movie Reviews The following movies were used to discuss ‘Relationships’, ‘Valuing Relationships’ and ‘Overcoming boundaries in relationships’ - ‘Udaan’, ‘Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander’, ‘Cycle Kick’, ‘Dor’.
