The Excellent English School run by social worker Dr. Benazeer Baig in the Bismillah Nagar locality of Bangalore, is in immediate need of a building of its own. Benazeer has been working for the last 20 years in this locality and running a campaign to rescue children from worksites and providing them education and imparting skills to their mothers in order that mothers are able to earn their livelihood and allow their children to study.
The school has grown from a small decrepit building to the current status wherein she runs the school in three adjacent buildings, with 666 children cramming the narrow space.
The Excellent English School was set up by Benazeer Baig in 1994 in Bismillah Nagar locality of Bangalore. It is a predominantly Muslim locality inhabited by lower middle class Muslims.
Present Strength of the School: 666, (60% girls + 40% boys).
Another 100 students are being coached under National Child Labour Project of the Central Govt and receive stipend from the Ministry of Human Resource Development.
The school is run by Raza Educational and Social Welfare Society. It has 7 members on the Board. They have an adjacent plot of 25ft x 25ft in which the Society intends to construct another building. Philanthropists and donors should contribute their mite for this.
The Excellent English School would not have come to this stage but for the dynamic and visionary leadership of Benazeer Baig. Benazeer started her school for children rescued from worksites in 1994. Most of them were working in hotels, construction sites, workshops and auto garages. She started the school initially for five kids who were rescued. By the year 1998 the strength grew to 100. The Excellent English School has 40 teachers on the payroll. The school imparts education from LKG to 10thstd (i.e., SSLC of the Karnataka State Secondary Education Board.
IBM is setting up a Smart Kid Centre where children will learn English, Technology, craft etc. It requires a space of 600 sq. ft. They have chosen the school for the purpose and have asked them to construct a building for the purpose.
This is an appeal to all of you to contribute generously for the construction of the building which is an essential requisite for starting and running the IBM Programme.
