Co-curricular programs with Reeii
Reeii education is a non-profit initiative that aims to help schools in different areas across India. Schools in India lack the resources to provide quality education and a flourishing learning environment. There are many things that contribute to the education process of a child. Curricular and extracurricular activities both play an equal role in the development of a child. Often, parents overlook the significance of co-curricular activities which help in shaping a student’s mind. Reeii understands the importance of extracurricular activities in schools and has helped schools in arranging different co-curricular and cultural activities.
Cultural activities by Reeii
Reeii tied up with various schools and helped them arrange different cultural programs. These programs increased the engagement of children and indulged them in a fun learning environment. The event was a success with different types of performances. We saw huge participation and excitement from students. Students gave performances in different languages and forms.
There were elocutions, dramas, dances, singing performances and cultural presentations. Students from pre-primary, primary and secondary schools were part of this function. Reeii helped the school in setting up the stage, mikes and other preparation for the function. Students wore different costumes and performed with all their heart. These cultural programs encourage students to showcase their talent and enjoy their school life. It brought extreme joy to parents to see their children performing, it increases their confidence in schools and they are even more motivated to send their kids to school.
Social Impact of these cultural functions
With these performances, children were also being made aware of social problems or conditions of our society. The programme had performances on different social issues like girl education, clean environment, save water etc. This not only makes students more responsible but also spreads awareness. Especially, the schools situated in rural areas where such issues are of major concern. When parents and the communities see students spreading these issues, they become aware of the problems and address them. So, children enjoy and there is so much that they learnt from these cultural programs.
Moreover, students of schools who can’t afford to have cultural and social programs due to lack of resources, feel inferior to other students. The cultural function gave a breath of fresh air to students in between their academic curriculum. Reeii helped them with the tools and equipment required so that the students can have the best experience possible. As a result, we saw huge participation and enthusiasm from the students and parents. It created a happy and joyful environment in schools.

They put a great effort into rehearsals and performances. Teachers were also motivated as a student is a representation of school and teachers. There is a sense of proudness in them. We saw participation from both girls and boys. Usually, girls in rural areas do not get the chance to attend schools and be part of such programmes. Reeii encourages girls’ education, so the involvement of girls in cultural functions which represent schools gives out a strong message and spreads awareness.
Cultural organized by Reeii in schools got students closer to Indian culture and values. With plays and on various instances from Indian mythology and folk dances, students learn more about the regional culture with interest. Usually, students don’t engage or listen carefully but with such activities, it grabs their attention and they understand it more. This brought great joy to parents as well.
