The Concept of Rahmani30
Rahmani30 started with the vision to search, find, house and train the most trainable students without any stated or implied fees. The process involves the following:
- Student enrollment process: Screening of candidates by standardized objective written test followed by behavioral interview for final selection.
- Student housing: Students are provided with complete supervised hostel accommodation; emphasizing a clean environment and appropriate nutritious meals.
- Student training: Specialized and highly skilled topic oriented teachers are sought and hired to lecture and demonstrate on the topic of their specialization.
- Student progress measurement: A collaborative process between students, administration and lecturers to keep students from lagging behind with regular, topic oriented, progress reports.
- Lecturer progress measurement: A collaborative process between students, administration and lecturers to provide for the most conducive learning environment, eliminating communication issues, cultural misunderstandings and addressing grievances.
- Student outward enrollment process: The process to help students apply for various standardized examinations.
A 100% successful result at IIT Joint Entrance Examination by its students introduced Rahmani30 to the people of India and the world at large, better than any marketing campaign. The successful outcome of Rahmani30 has demonstrated the potential of the idea and now it requires adoption and implementation at a mass scale by our societies. The following are key conclusions from this experiment:
- Disadvantaged students, though brought up in very poor education systems, adapt and perform to the highest level.
- Institutions such as Rahmani30 can provide disadvantaged students a fighting chance in this competitive world.
- The idea of Rahmani30 needs to be adopted for creating education awareness in the society and to provide for change from within the society.
