RTE-25% Facilitation Programme

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Under RTE-25% Campaign, we are advocating for the proper implementation the provision of reservation of 25% seats in private schools under Right to Education Act and facilitating underprivileged children to get admission in these schools at Ranchi. As per the proper and detailed study done by Pratigya, the abysmal condition of the implementation of this provision and lack of awareness in the marginalized community has led to just 1.6% admissions of BPL children against 25% available seats in last 3 years where as 2.4% admissions against 25% in the academic year 2013-14. Along with policy level advocacy to get the policy level gaps filled in Jharkhand, pertaining to this provision of the RTE Act, our volunteers are working in more than 40 slums and 20 villages of Ranchi, facilitating free admissions  of children from poor community in various schools as per the provision of RTE Act. The key findings and the detailed reasearch report can be referred below.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]RTE_Research_Report_Ranchi
