Education makes people more human than human. The Congregation of the Daughters of St. Anne, Ranchi is committed to providing basic education to the rural masses, especially the vulnerable (poor) section of population. The organization realizes that education is most essential tool for human development but poverty pulls them further away from education. Women literacy rate is also very worse so the organization has started awareness-building programme through non-formal education centers to motivate people about education. A special emphasis is being given to girl-child education and their enrollment is quite satisfactory.
Our option for the poor, the needy, the victimized and the neglected is a realization of our especial call socially, economically and culturally.
Mostly we work in remotest areas. We run the schools in the remotest and interior places. Children come from the poor background. Our first priority is helping communities that are economically, socially, culturally victimized.
We have the education committee. It has its aims and objectives. Our educational committee has not restricted only to formal education. It embraces the other types of non – formal education according to the needs of the time.
We run the nursery school, primary school, middle school, high school and higher secondary school. We know the importance of education.
Education is the knowledge of putting one’s potential to maximum use. This importance of education is for two reasons. The first is that the training of a human mind is not complete without education. Education makes a person a right thinker. It tells a person how to think and take decision.
The second reason for the importance of education is that only through the attainment of education, man is enabled to receive information from the external world, like nowadays; it is clearly being proved by many intellectuals. Without education, man is as though in a closed room and with education person finds himself / herself in a room with all its windows open to the outside world.
The greatest achievement was the molding of characters that learn to live in a society with dignity and pride, good manners and love of hard work. The students were prepared to face the challenges of life boldly. In the book of Proverbs we read, “Train of child in the way he or she must go and when the child is old he or she will not depart from it.”
Striving for academic excellence was a remarkable characteristic of St. Anne’s Educational Institutions. We did not strive to be the top-most but we strived to be the best and every St. Anne’ teacher dedicates her whole knowledge and energy to prepare her pupils for success in the examination. Failures were also accepted as signs for better and committed efforts to reach the goal.
