Boarding School for Tribal Girl Students, Dattigaon, Dhar District, Madhya Pradesh, India
In December 2009, RMF's Team India inaugurated a dormitory for girls at an English-medium boarding school in Dattigaon, a tribal village in Dhar District in the state of Madhya Pradesh. This dormitory was constructed through funding received by Aktionsgemeinschaft Partner Indiens (API), enabling girls from remote and far off villages to attend the school and receive high-quality education. Before constructing this dormitory, only girls from nearby villages were able to attend school. Now, 100 more girls have access to education. The school is now independently run by the Catholic Diocese, with children from all faiths and beliefs able to attend. The school is Hindi medium, and there is a special focus on integrating tribal culture with studies to maintain the students' connections with their culture and community.
