Free ~ Education

Education is a fundamental right of every person. The primary objective of Aozora children educational welfare trust is “education for all”. A large number of children in India are unable to complete primary school and drop out due to the cost of attending school. We provide financial assistance to children who have to drop out because of lack of money and help in Primary education for the underprivileged. Good education provides many objectives in life; Promote personal progress, promote social level, improve social health, economic progress, national success, set goals in life, make us aware of social issues, and solve solutions to solve environmental problems and other social Issues etc.
Education develops the minds of people on a large scale and helps in eradicating all the discrimination among the people in society. The modern education system is capable of completely eliminating the problems of illiteracy and equality between the various castes, religions, and tribes. Education is equally important for both men and women because both together form a healthy and educated society.

India’s rural population approximates around 70% of the total population. Per statistics, the Indian literacy rate grew around 74% in 2011, however, it is well below the world average literacy rate of 84%. India has a dubious distinction of being home to the largest child labor force in the world, a report produced by the International Confederation of Free Trade Unions- estimating that there is over 60 million child laborers in India.
Most of the children in the rural areas of Andhra Pradesh, as well as in the majority of rural India, have been subjected to the unfair world of child labor. Generation after generation, these children spend their precious time and energy as laborers and are often seen working in factories, construction sites, as tea vendors, in hotels as cleaners, carpet weavers, firecracker units and the list just goes on . Some children are forced to work up to 18 hours a day, often never leaving the confines of the factory or loom sheds for just a mere few hundred rupees. Some children even work as much as 7 days a week. These children (aged 5-17) are forced to support their families instead of attending school, furthering their education, learning skills for their future, and also playing and having fun.

Social Equality for ~ the Underpriviledged

Deeply concerned with the unique challenges and the indispensable need in the field of rural education, the ACEWT has been striving for years to bring free quality education to children. The children were even invited to the Aozora school where education classes were held regularly in an open atmosphere while the vision was undergoing development. It is with this sheer passion and determination of the ACEW Trust volunteers that more and more people have opened their hearts to lend support to the self-less vision of providing free education. As a result, the ACEW Trust Schools have now grown into full-fledged operational schools with sound infrastructure and a dedicated Volunteer Teaching Staff.
Academics provide children with the ability to not only read extensively, but also to engage and participate in the social and cultural life of the communities.Most importantly, education assures people from all social backgrounds have equal opportunity to have their voices heard in any public sphere.

Beyond Academics ~ A Developing Society

Apart from having 100% success rates in their examinations, it is ACEWT’s vision that the students also be given value based education. Volunteers from various countries regularly visit these schools and meet and interact with students, enhance their soft-skills and also conduct singing and dancing events, to bring out all the hidden talents in these students. The students are taught to participate in debates and essay writing,to show their skills and at the same time work with confidence. These activities are usually conducted on weekends not only to entertain the students, but also to educate and give them a firm conviction to face any challenge that the future may hold for them.With ACEWT’s Philosophy in view, Education should be complete and well rounded, the students learn the traditional practices of yoga and meditation.
