Why Trust Us?

FOOD AND HEALTH- When the children first came to us ,they were weak, malnourished and appeared younger than they were. They came from extremely impoverished and volatile environments. We have provided our children with a nourishing diet that has restored their health. Most of our children now look healthy and are fit, both physically and emotionally.

ACADEMICS- The teachers at Umeed are following and implementing the ICSE curriculum in combination with value education and Islamic studies. Each class has a lesson plan to follow. The lesson plans are divided into 3 categories, which are, an annual plan, a weekly plan and a daily plan. While the annual lesson plan incorporates what is to be taught, the weekly lesson plan focuses on the objectives and the daily lesson plan encapsulates the methods of implementing the other two plans. Most of the kids that join Umeed Academy lack an educational background, hence we provide them with crash courses that help bringing them to par with kids their age.

ART AND CRAFT- Our children love doing art and craft. At Umeed academy , we believe in a holistic approach to education and hence encourage the children for art and craft as it helps them develop creativity and moulds their brain into a progressive thinker. They are outstanding at art and craft and have won accolades in art and craft competitions they participated in.

ISLAMIC STUDIES- The Islamic study curriculum is divided into two segments. The first one focuses entirely on the Quran and the second one focuses on Value Based education. Here in Umeed, Islamic studies is called Value Based education because we belive that the purpose of studying Islam is to learn values. The students here are taught to read the Quran in the timbre of the world renowned and revered Imam Saud Al Shuraim, whose recitation is reflective and analogous to speaking to the almighty. We aim for our kids to attain a standardized level of spirituality. Under Value Based education the students are taught Dua, Hadeeth and Nasheeds( Arabic Songs) to get a hang of the Arabic language. While teaching Hadeeth we follow a strict methodology when we teach Hadeeth to kids and adolescents. Kids are only taught hadeeth that promote them to do good deeds while we save the prohibitive hadeeth for the adolescents. The syllabus for Islamic Studies is brief and limited to facilitate a better understanding and grasp over the Arabic language and the basics of Islam. The teachers operate with a lot of restraint without any haste to finish the syllabus. We want our students to grasp the process of learning Islam and making attempts by themselves to enable them to get closer to the almighty and Prophet Muhammad PBUH.

MIXED MARTIAL ARTS- It is taught every day by Mr.Noor Bhutia and his son Norain Bhutia who are one of the finest martial arts expert in the city. Our children enjoy it thoroughly and have made remarkable achievement in this field. They participated in Fit Expo 2019, which is an international championship tournament for mixed martial arts. Six of our children participated and won various accolades. All of them came back with a medal and Rahul Mohammed, our student, won the championship too.

SALAH- We encourage and ensure that our children offer Salah regularly, while in our care and we make repeated attempts to imbue in them the idea that Salah is obligatory upon us and it is our way of communicating with the almighty. We have testimonies from the parents and guardians stating that our kids rarely skip their salah. We plan to make our children Haafiz-e-Qu'ran InshaAllah and to prepare them for this life and the hereafter alike. A major part of our Islamic studies syllabus revolves around, memorising small Surahs’ to ease the process of salah.

MORAL EDUCATION- It is the core of our curriculum. We wish to provide our children with a holistic environment where they can grow as individuals. The backgrounds that our children come from is quite dark, and has corrupted them in some way or the other. Before anything else, we want our children to be good and benevolent human beings. We teach them the difference between right and wrong, good and bad. We have a morning assembly every day where they are taught morals and values. The teachers, along with teaching, are equally engaged in correcting the children with their language, teaching them basic etiquettes, table manners, civility, humility, charity, mercy, consent and gratitude. In totality we teach all of our kids the essence of how to conduct themselves in a civilized society.

FACILITIES-Our children are provided with the best of facilities to ensure a holistic environment. They have a comfortable space of 5000 sqft, study materials that include text books, copies, stationary and individual desks. The children have also been provided with 3 sets of uniforms. They have an AV room too. They are provided individual attention by our qualified teachers. They are also given toys and games for recreation. They also have regular health check-ups.

RECREATION- We take our children to interschool competitions and to picnics every year. It is important for our little ones to venture out and get to know the world outside Umeed.

ALTRUISM- We teach our children the art of giving. Our kids come from eminently impoverished backgrounds therefore we provide them with everything that they need and while doing so we also teach them the value of giving back to the society and helping people, such that they don’t forget their roots once they’re financially stable. It is essential to have altruism in our lives so that our community can thrive and succeed as a whole. The lack of altruistic effort will result in a selfish society spiraling into disaster. Without altruism, a community does not prosper together. It has to be taught at the most basic level such that eventuates into a habit.
