Empowered Self Governance

Self Governance is an empowered way of living and RDF looks at using various teaching-learning methods with the ultimate aim to help our rural students feel empowered.

A student role playing a middle school teacher

Matendla School grandly celebrated Self Governance Day in which Class 10 students role played the school’s teaching and non teaching staff, as well as roles of public representatives. Every student took their role seriously and prepared it well. By actually taking on these roles and their accompanying responsibilities, the children were able to more deeply understand what these roles entail. They shared their experiences with each other. Students who excelled in their roles were given prizes and every participating student was appreciated for their enthusiasm and hard work.

The smiling faces of our Class 10 students on Self Governance Day!

Abhilash, a Class 10 student donated leafy vegetables to the school which were utilised to prepare a scrumptious curry for the midday meal. Some of his other classmates donated sports good to the school. We felt very touched with their contributions and felt happy that they took the responsibility to provide something that the school community needed. Being able to extend themselves beyond their individual needs to look after the community needs is true empowerment, indeed!
