Since inception, E&H Foundation has provided quality education to 19000 children from Std 1-5 in 3 districts of UP – Farrukhabad, Kanpur, and Lucknow.
More than 55% of students being educated by E&H Foundation run-classes are young girls, helping bridge the gap between male and female literacy rate in UP and in India.
Independent studies show that the students have consistently attained grade-appropriate learning scoring 100 -150% higher marks compared to government school children and almost comparable to India’s best CBSE schools at ₹5000 per child per year, creating scaling-up potential.
Independent assessments show, children, receiving education through these models, perform at par with the best CBSE schools in India. E&H Foundation is aiming to reach 100,000 children by 2025 through expansion in more districts of Uttar Pradesh.
Key achievements in the last 5 years:
- Enabled quality education for more than 19000 children, from classes 1-5, in three districts of Uttar Pradesh – Farrukhabad, Lucknow, and Kanpur.
- Positively impacted underprivileged children and their families. More than 80% of students are first-generation learners, and 50% of the students enrolled are girls.
- Achieved high levels of learning with independent assessment by Education Initiative showing our students performing at par with the best CBSE schools in India.
- Developed partnerships with over 5 corporate houses including BlueDart, HDFC, InfoEdge and more than 500 individual donors to fund the programme.
The impact created in the last academic year 2018-2019:
In 2018-2019, E&H Foundation enabled quality education for 7000 children in partnership with two models.
Under Bharti’s model, E&H Foundation supported the education of 720 children in three operational schools in Farrukhabad. Two of our students from the Jeona School in Shamshabad were shortlisted for the Shiv Nadar School at grade 6th level.
Under ESO’s Gyanshala model, E&H foundation ran 237 classes in over 100 slums across 2 districts (Farrukhabad & Lucknow) to enable quality education for about 6200 children, 50% of whom were girls.
- We delivered Gyanshala’s MIT approved pedagogy to marginalized communities. By doing so, we enabled a strong foundation for these students who are first time learners, all hailing from extremely marginalized sections of society.
- We worked with marginalized families and consistently encouraged them to send their children to classes.
- We maintained a cumulative average attendance of 66% in all our classes. This is significant as average attendance recorded on a random visit to govt and private schools during 2018 were found to be less than 60% (ASER 2018) This significant attendance is achieved due to year-round efforts of field officers, teachers, program supervisors, parents and the entire community.
- In the final examinations conducted at the end of March, of the total students enrolled in 237 classes, 85% of the students gave exams.
- Of these, 72% of the students scored above 80% marks and only 3% scored less than 40% marks.
- We achieved grade-appropriate learning for at least 70% of children.
- Teachers, supervisors and core team members participated in vigorous training and capacity building workshops throughout the year to enable communities towards being engaged in the education of their children.
- Overall, the program fostered enhanced learning among students, indicating that the support has led to a better understanding among parents for the need to pursue continued quality education.
