Quality and Moral education for Government school children

Vandemataram Foundation (VMF) founded as an NGO in 2005, was established with an objective to build character, inculcate right values in the formative stage of a child in the under resourced schools in the rural and backward regions. Making a villages school the nodal point, the Foundation builds teams consisting of village elders, youth and alumni of the school. These teams working in tandem with the parents and teachers of the school actively involve the students in various constructive and creative activities.

Why Vandematarm Foundation ?

Despite allocating crores of public tax money into government school modernization programs, there is still poor participation, outcomes from rural schools. While local governments are addressing the infrastructure related gaps faced in schools, quality and culture gaps are yet to be prioritized and fulfilled. Vandemataram foundation believes that this gap will be filled by bringing ownership to local village stakeholders through Village Educational Development Centers (VEDCs). Vandemataram foundation will play a catalyst role to bring the teachers, parents, village leaders, and students to work as a cohesive unit to produce world ready school students who are on par or better than any other students coming out from other institutions.

VANDEMATARAM FOUNDATION'S APPROACH

Vandematarm Foundation will play a catalyst role in strengthening government schools by bringing local stakeholders together. It's flagship program, VEDC, was taken up in the year 2015 to sensitize the villages and provide consultation support to form educationsl development committees and define their functions.

These committees were constituted by the villagers who are majorly parents of the school children, Headmasters, Village Sarpanch and VMF trained volunteers. This model will strengthen the government owned concept of "Our school, Our village and Our country".
