Parikrma India's no.1 Social Impact School
We are super thrilled to inform you that Parikrma Humanity Foundation has been ranked as India’s top 1 Social Impact School – awarded by the EducationWorld Grand Jury Awards 2019-20.
This award, selected from thousands of entries has been given to schools that encourage student-led community service in school-sponsored local, regional and international community social impact projects. After a survey of over 12000 educators, principals, owners of schools, parents, and teachers we were chosen as Number 1 School in the category – there were 14 parameters of rating on actual impact and perception was taken into consideration.
One of the core values inculcated in every child at Parikrma is sharing and the need to give back. Such practices and values are part of their regular learnings. What is also critical to understand in this context is the environments our children hail from… 92% of our students have someone close in their family who has gone to jail. 98% of our fathers are alcoholics. 75% of our fathers have multiple marriages and 80% of our mothers are victims of domestic abuse. This is the universe that impacts the child’s experience and exposure. This universe shapes the child’s expectations from life which defines his or her aspirations. It abridges life plans to short-term goals and reduces the glitter of the future ahead. However, since 2003, the birth of Parikrma, what has transpired and stood as testimony to hope and positive change is the fact that our children take the bastion of hope and change and have been contributing to erasing this part of the universe from their fellow citizens’ lives.
