Residentail High School, Yeleswaram

AMG School, Yeleswaram was started in 1995, Yeleswaram is a small town and mandal head quarters in East Godavari Dist. It is surrounded by 47 quarries. According to AMG survey they are about 3000 child labours working in these quarries

The rocks are tough and even experienced elders in quarries get tired, as it requires lot of muscle power. The rock has to be cut to various sizes. It is really a tough job. Income is low. The fate of these young children is inexplicable. Their tender hands cannot break the rocks and they develop sores and blighters in doing so. Sometimes they bleed. At times the tiny stone particles strike their eyes and they lose their sight. They sweat in the scorching sun, breaking the hard stones.

Neither the children nor the parents know of any childhood joys/rights or parental happiness respectively. All they want is food. No school, no play, no health care and no labour laws. They waste their precious childhood. They do not enjoy playing around. Frequent blisters on palms and inhaling the stone dust filled air all the time. As they breathe the contaminated air of dust, their lungs get infected at a very young age, which is frightening even to imagine. This is the gloomy picture in Yeleswaram.

Knowing the above situation, AMG started a school for these unloved and uncared children. It started as bridge school. Broadly speaking, this project is not only for the children but for the development of the whole quarry labourer’s community. This is very special of its kind started by AMG. It was initially started by renting an abandoned rice mill and erecting thatched sheds and huts and providing cooking and shelting facilities to the students and teachers. By the grace of God, now we have our own buildings to run the school and other projects.

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.
