Krishna Murari Manorama Agarwal Saraswati Vidya Mandir School
Vidya Mandir School is a non-profit school that follows the Delhi Board & Central Board of Secondary Education curricula. 700+ Students in Grades 6-12 attend from Bahjoi & surrounding regions. They are taught Hindi, English, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Math, and Social Sciences.
School for a Village established 3 fully-furnished science laboratories for chemistry, biology, and physics. We provided an assortment of lab equipment including microscopes, glassware, reagents & chemicals, electronic circuit parts, prism, pendulums, thermometers, and hot plates. Over 1000 students have used these labs.
The Delhi Board and Central Board of Secondary Education curricula and exams include practical, hands-on experiments - all of which was previously skipped. With the completion of these new science labs, students are now finishing the entirety of the two curricula, performing well on exams, earning admission to India's most competitive colleges, and learning to be thinkers and problem-solvers.
Daraja Academy is an all-girls boarding school for students from homes of material poverty. Upon completing the high school curriculum, students tackle the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE), a standard national examination administered by the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) that includes both theoretical and practical components. It is mandatory for all high school students to pursue science subjects.
120+ students come to Daraja Academy from diverse geographic, tribal, and religion backgrounds with vastly different levels of competency in English and Science. As a result, teaching at any one level to all students is simply not effective. School for a Village has partnered with Choosito!, an NSF-funded student search engine and digital library, to bring high-quality, personalized resources to Daraja students.
Iembeni Secondary School
Iembeni Secondary School is a public school, serving 120+ students from Iembeni Village. School for a Village has provided calculators, geometric sets, and laboratory equipment, enabling Iembeni Secondary School students to complete the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) for the first time.
