RDF believes in deeply engaging with parents and the wider community in order to have a transparent and democratic set up in running its school operations.

Kalleda School invited all parents and village elders to the school in order to observe all its activities and have a proactive interaction amongst management, staff and teachers. The objective is comprehensive development of the school and students, in partnership with parents. Parents got the opportunity to observe activities such as the Science Fair, Balamela, Classroom observations of teaching methods, Dining system, extracurricular and support programs such as Archery, Khan Academy, Computers, Social Awareness Program, Farm activities and all academic interventions. They learnt about education partnerships and interventions in detail. The Headmaster shared the annual budget with the parents, including sources of income for the school, in order for parents to understand the challenges being faced.

With such transparency, parents and the community have always figured out ways of assisting RDF in meaningful ways, if needed. The day long event promotes trust based relationships, which is what garners respect within the community and has allowed RDF to thrive for 18 years!
