Residential High School, Bommuru

Residential High School was started in 1980, by Far Corners India International, another organization started by Dr. S. John David, with support from World Missions Inc. Long Beach, California U. S. A. Prior to its takeover by AMG India, the school was known as Far corners High School. However, after a few years World Missions Inc. expressed its inability to support the school and requested Dr. John David to search for new Donors.

It was God's providence that Dr. H. H. Deichmann, President, Wort & tat, Germany, came forward to take over the school and support it, as it is educating the poorest of the poor children.

The school buildings were opened in 1984 in the village Bommuru, in the suburbs of Rajahmundry, East Godavari District. The main focus in this school is to educate the children of fallen women( Kalavanthulu ), children of leprosy patients and other poor children from the Bommuru village and other nearby villages. Poor children from other communities and slums in the town are also admitted, to avoid social stigma.

The school was started with about 200 children in the Bommuru campus in the existing old buildings. Now there are more than 1000 children in the school, which is located in own premises. These children come from different backgrounds viz., children of Kalavanthulu, orphans, semi-orphans, children of leprosy patients, polio children, physically handicapped children, children from slums in Rajahmundry and poor children from villages. These children belong to all castes and religions. The only criterion for selection of children is poverty and poverty alone.

The school has classes from LKG to 10th grade. Initially, the school began as a Telugu Medium school. However, in order to equip the students, to meet the standards of employment, English Medium sections were started, with the aim of converting the school into a fully fledged English Medium school. The school now has English Medium classes from LKG to 6th grade. The Telugu medium sections will be slowly closed.

AMG also started Day Scholar programme for children from Bommuru and nearby villages, to accommodate more children from distant villages in the hostels. This has facilitated enrolment of more children from Bommuru, as they go back home in the evening. This was necessary as the campus was facing water and accomodation problems. Former students of this school are now working as Teachers, Clerks in Government and Private Sector, Lawyers, Army soldiers, Technicians etc.

AMG schools aim at the holistic development of a child i.e. development of the Body, Mind and Soul, in order to mould the personality of a child into as a productive and constructive citizen of the country. Keeping this in view ample opportunities are provided for games and sports and good food is provided for their bodily development. Teaching is done on the best levels and children are encouraged to participate in different extracurricular activities like debate/ essay writing/ painting/ singing competitions Sports and games etc., to instil in them the spirit of competitiveness. These help the child to better utilize his Physical and mental faculties and brings out latent talents in the child. Children are also encouraged to learn spirituality to make them full persons. Children in AMG schools are provided with the following amenities to make their stay comfortable and live in a decent and dignified environment.

It is the intention of Dr. John David and the AMG that, in order to instil self-confidence and the needed initiative, these poor children should be treated on a par with middle class family children. Without proper accommodation and facilities, they will not have the self-confidence. These children will not be able to compete with children from commercial schools, AMG should help these children to be fit to compete in the market when they grow up. Otherwise even after completing their education they will not be successful. We thank the Donors for their love, concern and support for these children.
