Success story-Varangaon StudyMall tenth standard results

It is always very important for us as a parents to know that our children are doing there best in studies. And for an Indian parent it is becomes more critical that there child scores well in 10th and 12th standard. This two examinations are like exams for parents themselves.

Although we at StudyMall believe that every child is special, some score very well in academics and some shine in other domain they are passionate for . But having access to  right educational infrastructure to explore, learn and grow in one’s passion is very important. As a parent we do our best to give access to our children right kind of educational infrastructure, at right time more so when they are in 10th or 12th std.

That’s what we also did, we tried to provide best possible infrastructure for rural children of our five projects. Here is a success story of one of our five projects of Varangaon village where 10th std students shined in there exams with the help of  facilities provided by StudyMall.

On 11 July 2015 we opened our second StudyMall project at G.S.C High school, Varangaon village Dist Jalgaon. This project started in collaboration with G.S.C HIGH school teachers and school committee. Our special supporter and  local volunteer Amol Awatare’s family, especially Mr. Chandrashekhar Awatare sir made this project a success.

Success stories of your donation for better rural education

I am personally charged up every time i have chance to visit our StudyMall projects location. It really makes me happy to know how StudyMall is helping rural children in making there learning journey more enjoyable. So i thought of sharing few examples with you, the donors and supporters of StudyMall to make you happy equally like me.

Our first project StudyMall at Surungali village is operational since Sep 2013. It is always a surprise and pleasure to meet children of Surungali village and see them grown up bit more every time.

One of our frequent StudyMall user Shraddha who was in 5th std and now in 9th std, has grown up so much. In one of our recent visit, she shared me so many ways StudyMall helped her. She shares her journey with so much passion with me. She says, StudyMall provided her and all her friends a place to sit, study and enjoy learning after school. It provided them extra curricular books to learn new things and aid them in debate, essay and other such competitions in their school. StudyMall helped her by providing solar lamps  when she wanted to study when there was power cut in Surungali village.low meme 3

Kunal and aditya have discovered a new fun game to learn geography when they sw a big world map in StudyMall. They  play a game  where they challenge each other to find a country, city or places on a Map. Here they are finding Nepal.

Having a computer in their small village is also a great chance for them to learn computer. Kunal is trying to work on computer.

There are many such stories where we felt thankful to our supporters for providing rural children StudyMall.

Another interesting recent story  is from  our third StudyMall project at Vangani Village , Dist Thane.  Here children could learn the laws of gravity through a movie shown on digital projector to them.
