School education in India is free and compulsory. However the cost of higher education is expensive, and educating a school child is highly challenging for tribal communities. Due to less access to middle schools they are forced to opt for boarding schools and this increases the burden to spend for boarding supplies and other needs. This year we successfully made 43 transitions from primary to middle school.
Our partnership with the government has helped us to celebrate a landmark achievement. Seb’s tribal schools encouraged and provided the opportunity for 29 of our Grade 5 students to write the entrance exam for Std.6 admission, organized by the Eklavya model school in Jammunamarthur. The Eklavya government model school provides scholarships for the entirety of a child’s school education and focuses on quality of education. We are happy to inform you that 11 Seb’s students have qualified in the entrance exam and were enrolled in Std.6.
We are also celebrating the fact that all our scholarship students who are studying professional courses have successfully cleared their exams and promoted to next year of their course.
