Tapaswini Vidya Mandir started out with an all women staff brigade, and has continued to maintain that till today. Out of the total strength of 200 students, 90 of them are girls. The School not only renders free education to the children but also provides them with midday meals, books, stationery, uniform, shoes and socks and medical and overall health care. The society is also providing help and support to the children pursuing their higher studies after they pass out from the Tapaswini Vidya Mandir. 57 girls are currently studying in private schools, pursuing higher education. To encourage the adult women, TNS has conducted a 5-year, bridge education course, educating destitute and divorced women in the city.
This special project helped us get associated with Raigarh’s women clubs, like the Inner Wheel, Red Cross, and The Lioness Club who now regularly conduct activities at the school.
The government’s introduction of the ‘Laadli Yojana’ & ‘Kanya Yojana’ have played a key role in attracting more girl students. The school ensures that each eligible student reaps the benefits of these schemes.
