The Government schools have been a source of hope for primary education in the rural landscape. The schools have been affordable, nurturing and a nucleus of turning the future citizens into a better tomorrow but have remained stagnant, neglected and unappealing.

Vandemataram Foundation now has an activity spread covering over 50,000 children in 135 such schools in Warangal and Mahaboobnagar districts. The children have been inquisitive, bright and talented. To streamline their talents into proper channelised energies, the foundation has taken up several programmes for the students, teachers and the community. The idea is to bring the school back to the nucleus of the society, an objective propounded by Dr.Abdul Kalam.


During the regular visits of the volunteers the one thing that was common among the students was that there was no proper guidance to the students. The Vandemataram foundation has as a matter of fact taken up student counseling program (SCP) in the govt high schools and upper primary schools. In these sessions the students started complaining of lack of congenial atmosphere at home for their studies. As part of the broader programme the foundation launched the Student enhancement programme (StEP).

The StEP target group:

The programme is aimed at students studying in Government schools and pursuing their 10th class appearing for SSC board exams.

The Student enhancement programme (StEP):

The Student enhancement programme (StEP) is an effort to bring in a small but qualitative intervention in the lives of the students deprived of facilities but with an urge to excel in their careers. There are children who are intelligent and sharp enough to excel and scale great heights in government schools but are deprived of facilities and congenial atmosphere as well as lacking in guidance in going ahead.

StEP is aimed at students located in remote and rural as well as slum areas. It aims at bringing the children in to collective study and group discussions while providing crucial inputs in the form of counseling, with help from teachers and community leaders.

Study centers

The programme includes special attention from the teachers in the classroom as well as proper guidance. A special initiative to counsel the parents would be included in the form of monthly parents’ and teachers’ meetings. The estimated 135 regular study centers in the schools of Mahaboobnagar and Warangal districts would make the students convenient and bring in the bets in them.

StEP Experiment 2006

In the academic year 2006-07 a total of 222 Upper primary schools participated in the programme from 120 villages. A total of 8,300 students benefited the programme. Students from 7th class in the StEP programme topped their class in 6 mandals.

The other important and noteworthy result from the StEP is that for the past two years the programme has worked and achieved results that are amazing. For example the 10th board exams gave 100% pass result to 4 schools and that’s no exception either in the 7th class public exams with equal no of schools achieving 100% result.

In schools that were never thought of 400 marks out of 600 there was 540 touching marks after the StEP implementation.

The foundation has also provided ALL IN ONE reading material from the examination point of view to the students for better convenience. The ALL IN ONE has been circulated to a whopping 9000 students who benefited from the material. This year the foundation has taken up the task of providing simple and monthly inputs to the students. The Foundation in association with Vijetha competitions has decided to distribute the study mate series of books to the students at subsidized price. The magazine would be provided at subsidized price to the students.

Examination Preparation camps

All that the foundation has done is conduct special classes for the 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th class students 2 months before the final exams. It is heartening to see children walk long distances to attend the StEP that shows their commitment to grow in life. Vandemataram foundation would like to see the result of a smiling and flying out in colours on the faces of all the children in the government schools.

For now the foundation just wants to implement the StEP in Mahaboobnagar and Warangal districts in a small way and go and reach the fruits to all others that are in need.
