Best Practice I : Each One Educate One Goal and Context
Saroop Rani Government College for Women, Amritsar, has a twofold mission. First, it aims to provide education to girls from economically disadvantaged backgrounds, offering them the opportunity for higher education and expanded career prospects through a job-oriented teaching approach. Second, it seeks to empower these girl students by implementing the "Each One Educate One" (EOEO) initiative, which was initiated on February 13, 2006, with the overarching goal of promoting "education for all."The context is rooted in the college's commitment to ensure that students who become a part of the institution do not abandon their studies due to financial constraints. To achieve this, the college provides support to economically disadvantaged students through the EOEO facility which is funded by various philanthropists.
The EOEO initiative has brought a systematic, organized, and effective approach to assisting needy students. By implementing this practice, the college has achieved the distinction of being the first government college in Punjab to provide financial aid to deserving students. The Principal serves as the president of the EOEO and is responsible for overseeing and streamlining the operation of this beneficial practice. The process involves interviewing applicants by members of EOEO, who then make decisions regarding financial assistance based on factors such as merit, economic conditions, and family circumstances of the students in question. The scholarship is granted only after the verification from the councilor of the area to which the student belongs is received. The information about the beneficiaries is communicated to the donors for their reference. However, the scholarships that are given to the students are limited in number because of limited resources.
Evidence of Success:
The EOEO scheme has been in operation since 2006, and contributions from staff members, alumni, philanthropists, and senior citizens have been continuous and unwavering, supporting this noble cause. Over the past five years, a total of 40 students have benefited from monetary assistance, receiving Rs. 5,000 each. In total, Rs. 2,00,000 has been extended to these deserving students, highlighting the initiative's significant impact and the college's commitment to the cause of education for all.
