JAAGO foundation’s first batch of Secondary School Certificate (SSC) examinees has achieved remarkable results with a 100% passing rate under NCTB’s English Version Curriculum. The result marks a huge milestone for JAAGO as 20 candidates had participated in the examination after 10 years of complete dedication and diligence. It is with the teamwork of the JAAGO SSC candidates along with the sheer dedication of their teachers that brought about a passing rate of 100%.
These students come from a challenging background and they are not acquainted with the privileges and facilities of most candidates for the exam. A majority of these 20 individuals work to help out their families, whilst facing the challenges of studying under the English Version Curriculum.
The journey that Korvi Rakshand and JAAGO supporters had embarked on 11 years ago, to fight the nation’s poverty through the power of education, became a reality for them upon the achievements of these 20 students. Korvi Rakshand stresses, “This achievement needs to be shared and nurtured for not only the first batch of our SSC graduate children but for all those who do not have the luxuries that we inherit by default. It will serve as a model that we can pass forward to thousands of underprivileged children.”
Mr. Rakshand adds, “It is absolutely wonderful to be able to read and write; a privilege we often take for granted. The ability to scribble down our thoughts or rationalize all that we see or even dip our toe into the river of knowledge is not an amenity readily available for all.”
JAAGO hopes to make a sustainable change within the development of the nation’s education sector by bringing into being such wonderful talents.
