ETERNAL GRACE SCHOOL

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. - PROVERBS 1:7

Presently there are 810 children studying in our school from Class LKG to Class X (Total 12 classes). The school is charging a nominal fee and 20% of the children are given concession on this nominal fee too. There is 18 staff in the school; most of them are new believers.


HISTORY OF ETERNAL GRACE SCHOOL

Our place is located on the outskirts of the city and the area is backward. They are all Hindus and 69% of the population belong to Scheduled Caste (Dalit-Chamar, Dakkar, Passi, etc.), 26% is Other Backward Classes (Yadav, Kurmi, Maurya, Kumhar, Vishwakarma, etc.) and 5% Higher Castes (Brahmins & Thakurs). In this, 89% of the population live under Below Poverty Line and the primary literary rate is less than 10%. In most families, women are the breadwinners and the men spend their time in playing cards and engage in other illegal activities. They earn less than INR 120/- per day. Though there are government schools nearby, the parents are not interested in sending their children to school. Instead they send their children to work in the fields. Some of the parents send their children to school for getting the free facilities available there and for the free Mid-day meal. Children studying in class 5 are not able to read or write their own name. We have done several awareness programmes in these villages. One of our Missionaries used to visit their houses everyday to bring the children to our place.
