Greetings from the entire team at CSSAR!
It is a matter of great privilege to present to you the Annual Report for the year 2016-17. It has been a rewarding year with the centers running consistently and smoothly without any kind of disruption. A new centre has been started during the year at Ankhir, Faridabad with the support of an overseas donor organization, Chance Foundation. This brings the number of centers to 11 catering to a total of 556 students. The focus brought on to improve quality of the education is also paying off with the students registering better scores in the school examinations. Greater emphasis is now being laid on teachers to continuously improve the learning abilities as well as monitor the results of each student. Appointment of a teacher for English at Bajghera has provided a positive experience and similar initiatives are being planned for the other centers
Several new initiatives to motivate teachers and students have been implemented during the year. All children were taken for educational tours through visits to historical and heritage sites and other modern landmarks in and around Delhi, teachers of all centers were taken on a picnic to help know each other and foster team building, two children are being supported for their Class 12 commerce studies while another has been encouraged to join vocational training program. The objective of these activities is to instill a sense of belongingness and make the process of learning more enjoyable. We are proud to present the success stories of two of our students. Anuj, 10 years old studies in 5th STD in Nagar Nigam Prathmik Vidyalay, Tilak Nagar. Till July, 2013 he was irregular in school and unable to do his home work properly due to unsatisfactory level of teaching in his school. His parents could neither teach him nor afford to pay Rs. 500 per month to a private tutor to improve his education level. In August, 2013, he was motivated to join the remedial classes in Delhi and now he is regular in school, able to do his home work properly, and understand different subjects better. He secured 91% marks in annual school examination of 5th STD held in March, 2017 and stood first in his class. He wishes to pursue higher studies and build on his interest in drawing. Shivani aged 13 years, studies in 9th STD in government school, Bajghera and had faced similar difficulties earlier. She was motivated to join the remedial classes in January 2014 and has been a regular since then. She secured 570 out of 700 marks in annual school examination of 8th STD held in March, 2017and stood 2nd in her class. She is very good in drawing and painting and wishes to pursue higher studies along with her interests. We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all the members of the CSSAR team for their sincere and dedicated efforts to move ahead against all odds. However, all this would not have been possible without the valuable support of our sponsors and donors: Give India, ISB Alumni Association, First Enterprises, Chance Foundation and the increasing number of individual donors. While we express our heartfelt gratitude to you all, we eagerly look forward to your continued as well as enhanced support in future. We hope that the information along with the visuals provided in the Annual Report would give you a better feel about the activities of the centre and would welcome your comments, suggestions or advice to enable fulfilment of our mission.
