Empower

Creating change makers
RDF strives to instill in students the qualities that will empower them to become agents of change in their communities. Teachers incorporate opportunities for leadership and examples of social action into every school day. Students are encouraged to think critically about the world around them and to take action when they identify moral challenges and social problems whether by organizing marches, writing petitions, or seeking an audience with the sarpanch (village mayor). Confidence, high self-esteem, and a strong sense of self are all characteristics that we develop in our students in order to empower them to stand up for what they believe in and work for social change in their communities.

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”
