Self Help Groups
The REDS Ranchi Self Help Groups continue their credit and savings. The members are satisfied and united to progress for their economical development through the guidance of REDS coordinator. Regular meetings are organized with the maximum attendance; the activities records are maintained under the supervision. The women beneficiaries at different centers have formed themselves in small groups to support in their financial difficulties. 220 members have enrolled in 20 small groups. They meet periodically assisted by the SHG coordinator. They save money and take loan, when they are in need. They are grateful to REDS Ranchi for this timely opportunity. REDS Ranchi observes Annual Day, Sports Day and Children’s Day every year. This creates an opportunity for the children to show their gifts and talents and to promote their cultural activities.
It is a major get-together of all in REDS Ranchi. It is also a thanksgiving day to acknowledge and to celebrate achievements.
St. Mother Teresa says, “The fruit of love is service, which is compassion in action.” The REDS staff renders their service with love towards poor children. They teach basic educational skills including studying the Hindu alphabet, English, numbers, tables, and basic mathematics. They are instructed in music, storytelling, hygiene, and basic moral behavior focused upon respecting each other both inside and outside the center. Children are divided into groups based on their learning capacity in the REDS centers. To avoid student absences, the coordinator teachers have formed groups of three or four students. This method is helping students to attend regularly and participate in every activity together. They are kept n the center for a year or two to prepare them intellectually, physically, psychologically, and socially to advance to a formal school.
