Good results at schools in India
Recently 494 boys and girls have completed their education at the AMG High Schools in Andhra Pradesh with very good results. In five schools, all pupils who sat their final exams have passed them. All in all, at the ten schools 93 percent of the pupils graduated - a result, which can definitely compete with German schools: at the end of school year 2009/2010, about 96 percent of graduates of secondary modern schools in North Rhine Westphalia were awarded the upper secondary level certificate.
After High School, some of the pupils can take part in further AMG programmes. For example, Chilakaluripet provides the opportunity to complete various types of vocational training or to go to college. In the Indian school system they can be compared to the advanced level of a high school in Germany. In individual cases, even those school leavers, who cannot or do not want to stay with AMG, continue to get assistance - for example by receiving a training grant.
Over the past years we have seen more and more young people, who benefited from this kind of support, coming to AMG after they completed their training to thank for the help they received - with words or their savings. This shows us that the words and the deeds of the helpers remain in the memory of the people and in turn become words and deeds - a beautiful experience.
