Independence day Celebrations at Balpan English School Village Panodi, Ahmednagar

On 15 Aug 2017 we celebrated our 70th Independence Day in India. We were also part of the celebrations at Balpan School, Village Panodi, Dist Ahmednagar.

We are very humbled and honored to had chance to celebrate this important day where our Founder Mr.Santosh Phad was invited to be chief Guest of Honor. I was very fortunate to join him too.

u

Balpan english school in Panodi Village is set up Mr and Mrs Munde with a sole aim of providing quality education and English language syllabus for the village students. In villages it is really a daunting task for parent to send them children to schools located at Taluqa or District place for better and English medium education. This leads to financial implications for family, health implications for children due to travelling and decreased motivation to continue education.

Balpan English school in Panodi village has 165 students currently attending from all nearby villages. It has 8 classrooms and 8 teachers. The School runs for 1st to 5th std students. It still lacks library, digital projector and other such better educational infrastructure. Thinksharp Foundation is going to set up a Digital class under project StudyMall for this school which will provide them digital projector in the initial phase and will add more educational infrastructure over period of time as per need.

h

On the occasion of the day various activities were performed by the talented students such as Parade walk, Lazhim, Speeches, Fancy dress as our respected Leaders and freedom fighters.

Success story of SSC student of StudyMall Surungali village

The most satisfying thing is giving back without expecting returns and appreciations. But we all are humans and we do love appreciations and we love to know what and how our help did better for the person we helped.

To all our supporters who believed in helping rural children read,learn and play better by supporting our project StudyMall , we would like to tell ” YES YOUR SUPPORT IS INDEED CHANGING RURAL CHILDREN’S LIVES”.

StudyMall at Vangani village

There are many success stories we would like to share  but we would like to mention about our first StudyMall project Surungali village story.

This is story of brilliant student Avinash Dandge. He is a resident of Surungali village and he has been frequently coming to StudyMall since its inception in Sep 2013. He says that StudyMall provided him a quite environment to sit and study after school and also   non academic, grammar, essay writing and language books that helped him prepare for his written and communicative skills. StudyMall has also provided him access to computer which he used to prepare for his exams. During power cut in village, it was StudyMall where he could study with the help of Solar lamps. StudyMall also gave him a friend and mentor Arun, our project volunteer. Arun helped him in discussions about  complex topics during his exam time.

Although he gives a major credit to StudyMall for his success of scoring 91% in SSC (10th std) exam, we know it’s his hard work and intelligence. Avinash hopes to be doctor some day, we wish him best luck and we promise to help him further if needed.

There are many students who scored very well with the help of StudyMall in surungali village in not just SSC but also in various other grades.

Since  its inception till 4  years til now StudyMall is acting as a catalyst in  success of Surungali village children.

We congratulate Avinash and students like him for there achievements.
