KIRAN SIKSHAN SANSTHAN

An academic initiation of HUHC Foundation

Under the project KIRAN (... a school of hope)

Education is both, a means as well as a begining to a better life: a means, because it empowers an individual to earn his/her livelihood and a begining, because it increases one's awareness on a range of issues from healthcare to appropriate social behaviour to understanding one's rights and in the process, helps him/her evolve as a better citizen.

Realizing this HUHC Foundation, developed a ray of hope for poor children 'KIRAN SIKSHA SANSTHAN', which is spreading the essence of knowledge in the little hearts by adopting a lifecycle approach of development, focusing its interventions on children, starting from their studies and touching every recreational field. School is situated in ABES ENGINEERING COLLEGE (032) GHAZIABAD Campus and at the most heavenly place it could be, under temple in the basement. HUHC feels privileged and extends its heartily thanks to ABES administration for providing us with a place to start KSS as a gesture of their philanthropy.

It was a long wait project of HUHC which actually got started on 16th April'14. The inaugural ceremony saw the presence of many dignitaries from various welfare societies and from ABES Engineering College. Directors, Deans, HODs and dedicated faculties of the college along with charming and energetic society members participated in the inaugural ceremony.Stationary and books were distributed to children to create enthusiasm among students for school. Id cards were also provided to students. The school imparts education to children between the ages of four to twelve years from the local slum areas. Now school has 30-35 students who were performing exceptionally good at our Literacy Camps for last two years. They have been presently divided in two classes with an education friendly environment with an objective of building blocks of nation. These blocks provide learning environment along with play. Students are curious and enthusiastic for learning.

School administration has tried their best in providing a very beautiful environment in the class as provided in a play schools. Walls have been beautifully painted and decorated according to the ages of students in KSS to avail them better learning tools and environment.

Teachers

‘If we are to teach real peace in the world, & if we are to carry on a real war against war, we shall have to begin with children’

With such sincere and loud thoughts of finest teachers of KIRAN, school has reached far above from where it was started. Teachers are turning every stone, giving their full time and efforts for children betterments. Teachers at KSS are mostly from HUHC and some are also as an intern. We are working on arranging trained teachers from B. Ed. Colleges in Ghaziabad as a part of their academic internship. This will certainly help in shaping even better educational environment.

Aim & Objectives

In slum areas, inhabitants are poor, illiterate & superstitious families. The school aims to spread education, & awareness among them, the core goal being to prepare the students for formal education and enable them to be self sufficient to fight and overcome the coming competition in their way in future. Total we have 26-30 teachers focussing not only on teaching but also on other activities like MORAL SCIENCE, GOOD HABITS, DANCE, MUSIC, GAMES, DRAWING, S.U.PW., etc. Timings: The timing of school is from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. which helps them to complete their studies in government run schools. We are here helping them in reducing the gaps in their studies by focusing on advanced learning of subjects that includes Hindi, English, Mathematics and General Studies. We also organize a recreational or activity class where students are addressed to live situations prevailing in education and society through visual and pictorial aids. The progress is very positive and we are determined to get success in our attempts.
