Project #2

Supporting Students at Feeder Institutions

 

 

Hamara School, Mallah Ka Nagla, Aligarh

Hamara School (Non formal school) established by few students of AMU in 1999, Under Society for Human Welfare and Education (SHWE), Mr. Shah Mohammad Shadab, President, Mr. Abdullah Faiz, Secretary, Mr. Masood Hasan Khan, Treasurer, and Mr. Mohammad Amir, Manager, located in Mallah Ka Nagla, Aligarh is serving the educational needs of the downtrodden kids of the society, mostly first generation learners who live around AMU campus and adjoining rural areas. This school runs three different programs:

(a) Hamara School at Mallah Ka Nagla, Aligarh (It currently has 70 students - Nursery, K.G, Grades I and II). School recruits the students from families who have no interest or resistant to send their kids to school, mainly due to socio-economic reasons. School prepares the kids in a year or two for admission in other schools in Aligarh for formal education at various grade levels.

(b) Pays the tuition fee for students that have been placed in other schools in Aligarh (61 students placed in 15 different schools in Aligarh, from Grade 1 to 10th)

(c) It offers Coaching Classes for School going children placed in other schools in Aligarh (61 students mentioned in above) to bring them up to speed and be at par with other kids in their school.

Since almost all the children come form the families who have no means to educate their children, all the expenses are borne by the founders and other donors of Hamara School.  Now the school is expanding and the numbers of students who have been placed in formal schools have increased over the years, the school management is seeking financial support from AEEF to carry on their work.

AEEF is planning to sponsor 90 students, 30 in each category [INR 2,400 (US$ 52)/student/year] at this school. An initial commitment is made for one year.

Please click on the link below and watch the documentary made on this school to get a feel how the concept has evolved and benefited a good number of boys and girls who would have not been able to get any education otherwise.

 Project #3

Excellence in education through scholarships


To bring about a transformation in the lives of academically brilliant and economically underprivileged students through scholarships

 

An important element of AEEF is its scholarship program. 50 needy and bright students will be supported across India. The scholarship will be awarded to students at any academic level after passing high school in any area and at all levels of education. Selection of students is based on merit-cum-means. The actual amount of award will be determined based on financial need of the student (upto Rs. 1000/month). An initial commitment is made for one year, but the recipients are given to understand that they will be supported to the highest degree level as long as they perform well, still in need of financial assistance and the funds are available at AEEF. Any substantial financial aid from other sources precludes the award of this fellowship.

Project #4

Supporting Vocational Training for Women

Provide skills to achieve self-esteem and self-reliance through vocational training and basic education

 

Mahila Training Markaz (Women’s Vocational Center)

Mahila Training Markaz, which is run by Shabbir Memorial Education Society and mainly looked after by Prof. Rashid Hayat Siddiqi and Mrs. Hashim Rizvi. The Markaz was started about 10 years ago when it received a small grant from a well-wisher. The school where the Markaz operates is located very close to a congested area of lower middle and lower class residential/commercial population. At present it has 20 girls/women registered in the program that comprises basic instructions in tailoring. There is an honorary supervisor and one salaried instructor. Funds are drying up and without additional funding the Markaz may not be able to sustain its program after a year or two.

AEEF is working with the Markaz to hire a teacher to start the basic education and retain the sewing instructor for vocational training. This will prepare many of the girls for enrolling in formal schools after some initial tutoring. Later on depending on progress and availability of funds the program can be expanded in terms of beneficiaries' as well as scope.

AEEF is making initial commitment for two years, but the Markaz is given to understand that it will be supported in the long term as long as progress is made in the program and the funds are available at AEEF.

Sponsorship for One month: US $ 134

Sponsorship of Center for one year US $ 1,610
