RINRED is a wing of REST to help the poor in Rural Area for their education development. Right to Education is the primary right of every citizen of India, whether a child resides in a high profile society or in a far away not so developed secluded village. Schools in rural areas are promoted to raise the level of education and literacy in rural India. The main aim of running these types of schools in India is to increase the rates of literacy in rural areas. More than 40 percent of India’s population is illiterate and cannot read or write. And schools in rural areas are inadequate and often equivalent to being non-existent. Thus, government’s initiative to set up schools in rural areas came into picture. According to Just Indian Schools the conditions of rural education in India, is improving steadily and the government is also providing full support and providing with many initiatives. The fee structure in these schools is also very low so that every child can study and afford it.
Under this programme, our organisation has planned to adopt the needy Govt schools located in the remote corner of rural areas in a phased manner. To initiate with this programme, we have on 14th May 2012, adopted a Govt High school located in Pattanam village, Coimbatore District, functioning with very poor infrastructure. Due to its remote location in the outskirt of the village, without sufficient basic amenities, the strength of this high school is 230 only. Out of them, 60% of the students belong to BPL family and 50% of the students are orphans belong to an orphanage functioning near Pattanam village. As this school is very recently higher graded as High School, it is lacking most of the minimum basic amenities required for the smooth functioning of an institution. This school was identified for our ongoing development project, RINRED in April 2012 during the ‘One Day - Rural exposure visit programme for Students’ conducted by us, on behalf of AMRITA VISHWA VIDYAPEEDAM UNIVERSITY, Coimbatore, for their 30 MBA students.
