Engaging the world
RDF believes that, given the opportunity, everyone is a teacher and everyone is a student. In this vein, we seek to engage our students both within the school and with the outside world. From growing rice and vegetables for the mid-day meals, to grading teachers and giving input on hiring decisions, the students are involved in all aspects of running the schools and their education. Through partnerships with national and international organizations and companies and through contact with the many volunteers that stay at the schools, RDF students have many opportunities to engage with the greater worldwide community. These interactions allow our students to share their own knowledge and also to learn from the experiences of those coming from different backgrounds.
If we are together nothing is impossible. If we are divided all will fail.
– Winston Churchill
