Impressive show by the Mahadalit Children from READ in the Metric exam



Our effort to build human capital among the oppressed communities received a shot in the arm when the Bihar board metric result was announced on May 29, 2016. Out of the 32 Mahadalit children (26 Musahar & 6 Ravidas) who were part of the long term residential programme at READ, 14 secured first division and 18 second division. Five children secured above 70%, highest being 74.8. This is a remarkable achievement given the fact that only 46.4 % of the students passed in the entire state and moreover these children belong to the most economically, socially backward and excluded communities.

READ has been accompanying these children through supplementary education centres and child resource centres in their respective villages since 2008. They were admitted for the long term residential training at READ for the IXth class in April 2014. The good performance of the children has enthused the parents, teachers and proved the effectiveness of the Patna Jesuit Social Action (PJSA) model in building human resources within the oppressed communities.

We hope that we will be able to better this result in the coming years.
