Help Ananya continue her education
Ananya would cry every day. She would be in the corridor outside the classroom, looking incredibly sad and distraught in a way only a child can. Tears would roll silently down her cheeks and when asked why she was crying, she would usually not answer. But eventually the truth came out. It was her parents. They fought. And Ananya's father beat up her mother. The Head Teacher invited Ananya's parents to counselling sessions with her. It wasn't easy, but, gradually over several meetings, the couple started to realise the impact their disharmony was having on their child. It was easy to see that the couple really loved each other, but were overwhelmed by the new baby, financial worries and the fact that Ananya had become difficult to handle lately. As the parents mended their relationship, the child settled down better in school and was happy and carefree again. Today the family is a close-knit unit and Ananya's baby brother has also started attending school. Ananya does well in school and is a calm and happy child.

About The Program
What the beneficiary gets
The Peepul Exemplar School Programme works with state and local governments to identify and bring on board declining government schools in areas of high disadvantage and put in place a high-quality teaching environment. The schools Peepul works with often begin with significant challenges. The first school opened in July 2015 with nine students having enrolled out of which only five attended school. Those who did attend had very low levels of learning. Within one year of becoming a Peepul led school, enrollment increased to 230, attendance reached 83% and 76% of pupils either met or exceeded expectations across English, Hindi and Mathematics.
The main objective of Peepul objective is to create a proof-of-concept of a school that would be run within government premises in a sustainable manner but with greater autonomy, accountability and significantly improved learning outcomes. Peepul schools serve as exemplar showcases and demonstrate what is possible within government constraints.

Paving way for a bright future
Across all the three Peepul schools in Lajpat Nagar, Amar Colony, and Jeevan Nagar, the average attendance of students was 77%+. We exceeded the end of the year enrolment targets for all the three schools with a student retention rate of 91% Other important Highlights: Academics: In all our classes in the 3 schools, 80%+ students met or exceeded grade-level expectations. We held regular network meetings on the last day of every month to prepare question banks, align syllabus covered in all three schools, and set final term question papers. The school teams spent dedicated time to plan lessons and resources for the upcoming term to build codified versions of the lesson plans. IPAS and ASER tests were conducted for Grades 2, 3, and 5. We called parents of all the 20 students of grade 5 preparing for Rajkiya Pratibha Vikas Vidyalaya entrance exam to share result of the mock test series and supported them with the next steps for their children’s development. A total of 63 students from Nursery to Grade-5 were awarded stationery items for having 100% attendance in the months of January and February. In Amar colony, we conducted a baseline test for all students in January. Classes for Module 1- Listening and speaking began in January, using a Spoken English programme that teaches students how to say everyday English phrases with energy, passion and confidence. Two Peepul teachers participated in the KER National Summit 2020. Also, the SDMC Nursery teacher is being trained on an ongoing basis on curriculum and pedagogy through real-time coaching and modeling.
