Mission: Sahyog

About - Mission: Sahyog

Project Mission Sahyog is an initiative of Reliance Foundation implemented by Saaras Foundation in 23 villages of the Jhajjar district of Haryana. The main objective of Mission Sahyog is to empower the people of the deprived society by increasing their access to the welfare policies being run by the government.

The Policy

RTE Sec. 12(1)(c) mandates reservation of 25% entry-level seats in private unaided schools for children belonging to disadvantaged sections to create a more integrated and inclusive schooling system.

The Gaps

In UP, for a population of 19.9 Cr there are only 6 lac seats available for children to attend a high quality free education Out of the 6 lac, only 9% actually go to the underprivileged children they are intended for.

Target Group

Parents / Families / Children from socio economically weaker and disadvantaged communities.

Why do gaps exist?

  1. Lack of awareness on ground – application/seat is 0.25
  2. Lack of capacity in District offices for school mapping – only 25% school mapping done
  3. Lack of Student Tracking and Reimbursement system in MIS
