Partnerschule in Hyderabad / Indien
The Rising Sun School is a school for underprivileged children whose parents cannot afford to pay their education. It’s a donation based project, aiming to involve as many people as possible, in the process of reducing the illiteracy rate worldwide. Our purpose is also to diminish the child labour which endangers, physically and mentally, millions of children.
The Rising Sun School was founded on August 30th, 2013. Its location is in Hyderabad, India. The existing capacity of the school is 80 students. They will be taught beginning from 1st grade up to the 7th grade. The school provides free education for underprivileged children from all religious and ethnic backgrounds.
The Rising Sun School is a non- profit and non-political educational organization that strives to educate children in difficult circumstances with the help of volunteers, professionals and socially conscious citizens.
We strongly believe that every child is uniquely gifted and deserves a childhood as well as an opportunity to go to school. We see education as a social investment which results in long term benefits.
Our main objectives are:
- To provide local children an opportunity for free education in a loving and peaceful environment.
- An education covering every aspect of human development and character.
- Free food to be provided for all the children in attendance.
All the teachers in the school are experienced, and chosen carefully. They use the pedagogy system of integral education that elicits the values of love, truth, peace, non-violence and righteousness in all their teachings. For the parents we organize monthly sessions to teach and motivate them on how to encourage their children to attend school, and help them in the learning process.
"Build our own school"
Our long term vision is to have our own school facility with capacity to accommodate students up to the 12th grade. We are working towards creating a School of Excellence which will serve as an example for society. Mahatma Ghandi says “Be the change you want to see in the world.”
Our students will acquire knowledge and adaptive skills that can prepare them not only to create and sustain a living, but also to reach their full human potential. "We want education that builds character!": Swami Vivekananda.
