As per the Annual Status of Education Report (ASER) 2012, 96.5% of all rural children between the ages of 6-14 were enrolled in school. This is the fourth annual survey to report enrollment above 96%. Another report from 2013 stated that there were 229 million students enrolled in different accredited urban and rural schools of India, from Class I to XII, representing an increase of 23 lakh students over 2002 total enrollment, and a 19% increase in girl’s enrollment. While more than 95 percent of children attend primary school, just 40 percent of Indian adolescents attend secondary school (Grades 9-12).
While quantitatively India is inching closer to universal education, the quality of its education has been questioned particularly in its government run school system.
To tackle this problem we make constant efforts to ensure quality education reaches all and vice versa and till now Abhedya found sponsors for their higher education in Saraswati Shishu Vidya Mandir Sharda Vihar, a school with various types of sports and swimming pool and horse riding track.30 families are sponsoring 41 children which includes 37 girls and 4 boys. These children are getting holistic education and hence are paving the path to the younger lot in the tribal cluster.
