DO YOU FEEL FOR THESE UNFORTUNATE KIDS?
School dropouts, Child labourers who have missed the sunny years of their childhood, Children from
traumatic backgrounds, Children from broken families, underprivileged children from rural illiterate
As you feel, we also felt. So, we are running a free children home, 'Kaliyuva Mane' where these kids are
given accommodation, food, clothing, medical care free of cost, in a homely atmosphere charged with
LOVE, CARE & EMPATHY. Kaliyuva Mane is registered with Department of Women & Child
Development, Government of Karnataka under the provisions of Section 34(3) of the Juvenile Justice
(Care and Protection of Children) Act, 2000 and Amendment Act, 2006 as a Child Care Institution.
THERE ARE NO SCHOOLS FOR THESE 'OUT OF SYSTEM' CHILDREN TO LEARN.
Regular schools consider all children as machines with equal learning efficiency, who can learn a
predetermined textual content within a stipulated period of time, in a predetermined way. If all children
learn this way there is no problem. What is the future of the children who cannot learn this way? Is there
a school for a mentally normal, 12 year old child with IQ:100, but at an academic level of 3rd standard?
As per RTE Act, such a child can join age appropriate 8th standrd in any recognized Government school.
But without prerequisites, can such a child be able to learn? There is only a film (Tare Zameen Par), for
dyslexic children, but no school. We find many mentally normal children who cannot adjust to the strict
regimen of regular schools. We call them OUT OF SYSTEM children.
We feel, every educated person with values is an asset to his country in particular and to the world at
large. So we are running a free child-centric school for such children We felt, we cannot create another
earth and it was our duty to save this. So, we made Kalilyuva Mane completely an eco conscious school.
THERE IS NO RESEARCH CENTRE ON THE EDUCATION OF OUT OF SYSTEM CHILDREN.
So, in August 1992, staying in a village, we started carrying out intense grassroots level research through
supplementary classes for the rural poor children from 6.00 am to 8.00 am & 7.00pm to 8.00pm.
Children's response was good. The result is a new education system based on the philosophy, 'School
for CHILDREN' rather than 'Children for SCHOOL'. In 2005, as a logical sequel, 'Kaliyuva Mane'- a full
pledged school was started based on this principle.
Our school has been appreciated by BEO, DDPI, Text book committee Chairman, and National
Curriculum Framework member. Hon'ble education minister has instructed the Commissioner,
Department of Public Instruction to grant approval to our school. Infosys founder Dr. N.R. Narayana
Murthy who visited our school on 16th January 2011 remarked: 'I'm so happy to see the wonderful work
being done by Mr. Ananth and team to empower the forgotten India'
DONATE, VOLUNTEER, CONNECT TO A DONOR, SPREAD A WORD AND DERIVE AN INNER JOY.
