Gratitude for Alumni

RDF’s alumni are its biggest champions! There is no greater credit to RDF’s philosophy and vision to educate, engage and empower poor, underprivileged rural children than when school alumni are able to follow their dreams and goals to a financially sound future and come back to pass on their learning and experience to children in our schools.

Praveen, an alumnus of RDF Matendla School, visited the school for a project to fully understand the challenges of rural education and running a school in a remote area. Currently pursuing an MBA, he spent the day talking to his former teachers about his life as an MBA student, excited to continue his learning journey, the bedrock having been provided during his formative years in the school. He deeply appreciated all the resources that were made available by RDF in such a remote and rural village as he firmly believes that these amenities and quality of teaching gave him an advantage in his higher learning.

He sat in on lessons with students from various classes and spoke to them about his experiences. He motivated them to work hard with all the resources being provided by the school in order to achieve their goals. He patiently answered all their queries about colleges, career and job skills required in today’s world.

We deeply appreciate that former students take on a level of social responsibility at such a young age in order to encourage their local community children.Despite their own challenges, they selflessly give their time, effort, skills and even financial support. We are proud of our truly empowered alumni who do not forget their roots and the bonds created with all our students that make them come back in order to encourage and inspire these young and hopeful children who dream of a life free from poverty.
