We envisaged this initiative in our drive for the implementation of quality education to the children of economically weaker section (EWS) category in concurrence with invigorating free and compulsory education to each and every child for nurturing the youth and thus empowering society with the weapons of knowledge and learning. The foundation realized the need for adopting groundbreaking research to ensure the compliance of private schools with the implementation of the RTE policy in favour of the equitable treatment and sustainable goals. To arrive at this vision, our dedicated team, by its systematic efforts ventured out to the private schools of Lucknow in various districts in an attempt to scrutinize the modality of the 25% reservation seats for the children belonging to low-income family category as mandated in Section 12 of the RTE Act, 2009.
Furthermore, scaling up its reach to a wider range of schools, the organization successfully made 5 zone-based divisions of Uttar Pradesh to check for the categorical implementation of RTE which in all likelihoods will strengthen the purpose of undertaking this project. These significant measures will pave the way for higher enrollment rate and at the same time will enhance the upliftment of these deprived areas. Investment in human resources is widely considered as strong base for the overall development process with an emphasis on educational sector. At the core of Project Shiksha, the organization has been successful in ensuring the foundation of numerous programmes to garner the primary objectives of quality learning in the education process. With the integrated efforts of the entire team and the immense support of the collaborations with our partners and the state government, AFPR envisions to create an environment that is conducive for the optimum development of children as well as for the world itself.
This is our one of the biggest future prospective projects through which we pledge to strive and make the society a healthy place, especially for women. Hence we feel proud to launch this project on 26th of July, 2020, which will gain its shape through remote and digital mediums.
“Project Rajaswala” is a drive to share knowledge and spread awareness about the issues surrounding menstruation. It seeks to reach out to young girls via multiple platforms, providing them with a forum to learn about menstrual hygiene management and share their own experiences about menstrual taboos, choices, and practices.
The foundation realized the need of this project in the wake of a dramatic increase in menstrual and pregnancy diseases caused to women practising unhealthy lifestyles and thus putting not only themselves but also their future newborns at a greater risk. With this objective, our team will work in various districts of U.P. in collaboration with Schools and Village Panchayats, especially in rural and sub-urban areas, to promote menstrual hygiene by teaching healthy menstrual practices, the use of menstrual pads and their benefits by providing sensitisation regarding government facilities along with checking the implementation of government schemes and efforts at ground zero. We have kept our hopes high with this project as this will mark our success and motivate us for doing similar work for the public at large.
