Challenger International School

challenger-kidsIMRC built Challenger International School to address the problem of homeless children in India and the lack of permanent shelter for orphans with quality education. In general orphans are vulnerable to poverty, crime, low end jobs, and exploitation.

The unique system at CIS has shown a positive and life changing affect on the children thus far. This project began with one acre of land acquired in Moinabad, about 25 km from Hyderabad. The project has been taken in two phases: a hostel block and a school block. Alhamdulillah, through your donations, the school is nearly complete and we have been able to accommodate up to 21 orphan girls at CIS with a total of 250 student enrolled, 150% increase from last year’s enrollment.

At CIS, we provide modern education and allow orphan children and non-orphan children to integrate in the classroom and on campus. It’s common in India for orphans to attend school in a separate facility. In most cases, these schools are run down, they lack funds, have outdated curriculum and are volunteer based. At Challenger, we provide opportunities normally these orphans wouldn’t have had.

They deserve a safe home and the best education possible. CIS’s objective is to provide quality & purposeful education using innovative methods through the expertise & vast experience of highly talented staff. Year-round children are involved with activities such as field trips to the zoo, picnics, science fairs, using the computer lab, school performances, quiz competitions and other activities. To ensure the wellness of every child, CIS also holds yearly medical checkups for all children.
