Venue: Jagatdal, West Bengal.

Date: 29th June, 2019

Jagatdal Chasma-I-Rahmat High School (School) needed the 2 classrooms to
accommodate more students from the local area.

Calcutta Central Round Table 38 (CCRT38) and Kolkata Victorian Round Table 227 (KVRT227) took the initiative to build the required 2 classrooms and also finished it in record time starting from 23.5.19 and finishing inauguration on 29.6.19. The total area constructed was 1050 sq ft. Around 150 children will be benefited from this project. The total cost of the project has come out to Rs.12.06 lakhs.

As we understand, even after 65 years of independence, millions of Indian children have never, ever been to school due to poverty in our Country. Since the year 1996, Round Table India (RTI) started adopting projects, across the country, aimed at providing quality school infrastructure, and then in 1998 this project was formalised and thus born the National Project of RTI- “Freedom Through Education (FTE)”. In pursuit of educating underprivileged children RTI’s focus on infrastructure building is aimed at promoting education for posterity.

For CCRT38 and KVRT227, the School’s 2 classroom project was identified based on the fact that the oldest in the area and there were no good schools nearby.

From CCRT38, Chairman Tr.Amit Soni, Tr.Aditya Shroff, Tr.Aditya Poddar, Tr.Nishant Shaw, Tr.Dewki Khaitan were present at the inauguration. Parents of Tr. Rahul Saraiwala were also present.

“The best way to predict your future is to create it”-

As we all know that education is the most powerful tool that no one can steal. I still remember the first visit to the school and when the students were told that instead of learning in the hut they will now get to go to school in a pukka building . The smiles on the cute faces of children said it all. The vibrations attracted us to make a proper building so that students can study properly.

With the help of an old lady who is an IIT pass out, donated her land for the kids so that they can study and make name for our country. With her help and blessing we started this Greenfield project and looking at the need and future we started the construction. The foundation was done so that we can add two floors in the future.

Around 211 Kms from Kolkata a two and half hour drive from the city we found the school .We did  4 classrooms and a toilet block for the Students at present. The total constructed area is 3205 Sqft at an outlay of 36 Lacs. Currently there are 192 Students Studying but with the building now in place it will grow from the next sessions which happens to be in Jananuary 2020.The school authorities expect minimum growth of 75-100 Students .

The school is located at a very remote village and in the vicinity of around 4 Kms there is no school. The school takes the initiative of bringing the students from there nearby homes in tempo and dropping them too.

With loads of thanks and appreciation the locals greeted us whole heartedly. The smiles on the face of the children were a beautiful sight. Now more children can study and get a direction in their lives.

National Project Convenor Tr. Hussain Mustafa, Area 4 Chairman Tr. Manish Lakhotia, Area 4 Project Convenor Tr. Tushar Agarwal  & Tr.Abhishek Agarwal along with Tablers From RT 293 were present.

“A child without education is a bird without wings”- Tibetan Proverb.

With Indians ever increasing polulation the biggest challenge and the matter of concern is to provide quality education for every child born. Though the Indian government has been partially successful in increasing the literacy rate percentage however there still exits a major gap. Indias majority population lives in rural and yet there are countless villages where the children are not even getting the basic education properly. Illiteracy is a self fulfilling curse that perpetuates the chain of pverty, degradation and child labour. Round Table India has very well taken this initiative to reach out to these areas where the goverment is yet to lay its eyes upon.

The Victorians too after having collected enough funds through fund raising projects took the initative of building 4 more classrooms at the school. The total area constructed was 2200 sq ft. Around 450 children will be benefitted from this project. The total cost of the project was 24 lakhs.

Absence of any good school nearby there was urgent need for a project like this.

With loads of thanks and appreciation the locals greeted us whole heartedly. The smiles on the face of the children was a beautiful sight. Now more children can study and get a direction in their lives.

National Project Convenor Tr. Ajmal, Incoming Area 4 Chairman Tr. Jeet, Area 4 Chairman Tr. Manish Lakhotia, Area 4 Project Convenor Tr. Tushar Agarwal along with Kvrt 227 members, Circlers, Twinklers were present.

We also did a small Non fte project in the school by distributing school bags to the children.

A Token of Appreciation was given by the Kvrt 227 Chairman Tr. Ayush to all the dignitories.  A glorious first half of the day was well spent. True to the defination of the word pure team work we Victorians embarked on yet another journey in the persuit of education the underpriviledged.

3 Classroom FTE block by Hubli Accent Round Table 153

Hubli Accent Round Table 153 constructed FTE School Block of 3 Classrooms at Sri Gangadhar English Medium High School, Noolvi and the same was inaugurated on 15th June’19 benefiting 947 under privileged Children.

The Only English Medium School in the Village and Surrounding – Shri Gangadhar English Medium High School, Noolvi was in immediate need of classrooms. This school is situated in a village which is 21 kms from Hubli & the only English medium school in the nearby surrounding. Presently there are 947 children studying & majority of these children are under privileged who belong to the farmers/farm workers community.

The school was managing with only 15 classrooms out of which 3 Classrooms were constructed by us last Year under the RTIT FTE Grant. The School authority requested us to build additional 3 more classrooms to meet the requirements. Basic infra & amenities is a right of every student & we at HART 153 believe & strongly endorse that view.  Now is the time to provide better infra & ambiance for our next gen to provide quality education more effectively even from a school situated in a remote village.

Thanks to RTIT for considering this project initiated by HART 153. 03 new class rooms were built at a total outlay of Rs.24,80,000/-. The quality of these newly built classrooms has been the highlight of the project, which has been highly appreciated by the school authorities, Gram Panchayat & by the RTI area dignitaries present during the inauguration ceremony.

These classrooms are equipped with fans, LED tube lights, green boards with vitrified flooring.

We are sure 947 students stand to benefit hugely in the days & years to come as shortage of classrooms will never be an obstacle for them from now on.

School Children & staff were overwhelmed to witness such high quality class rooms. They have been lauding the efforts of Round Table India in ensuring their mission of Freedom through Education.

Bombay Round Table 2 donates Benches to school for Lesser Privileged

BRT2 has had a strong history with this School. Over a period of 7 years, this is the third association with the school. In the last 3 phases we have built 16 classrooms covering an outlay of 12000 sqft.
Mr. Pratap Gaikwad is the principal and a trustee of the school. A very educated person and a very responsible person to work with. P&G wanted to do an employee engagement programme at any of the RTI FTE schools. NPC Hussain and AC Aditya Jhunjhunwala approached us and the table along with school immediately identified the project.
The school wanted a retention wall for the playground and also benches. Working out the budget and other logistics we decided to take up a project with 175 length of retention wall and 75 benches. About 40-50 employees of P&G visited the school and physically worked for the entire day to help in
construction of the wall. Once they finished with the works day subsequently we finished the work with contractors and procured benches.
We thank P&G, NPC Hussain and AC Aditya Jhunjhuwala for their support and guidance.
