Helping each other

Matendla teachers have created a welfare fund for themselves

At RDF Matendla, teachers are taking care of each other.

The school has an innovative welfare and medical insurance fund that helps pay hospital bills when teachers or staff members are sick.

Each month, employees contribute Rs 30 into a communal fund. Since the program began in 2009, the fund has grown to Rs 17,000. If someone falls ill, the money will be used to pay 6 percent of the hospital bill.

Headmaster Vishnu came up with the idea because he worried that his employees might not have anyone to help them if they fell ill. Today, 22 people contribute to the fund.
