Rampur is a village located in Uttar Pradesh, almost 33 km from Lucknow. Rampur is home to 211 households and a 100 year old Peepal tree that the villagers consider sacred. The people of Rampur are simple people who rely on farming and cattle rearing for their livelihood. 

The village has one Anganwadi and one elementary school. Since the school only teaches till class 5, the children, especially girls of the village end up studying only till class 5. Some boys are sent outside to study, but most leave for Lucknow as they grow older in search of work. After reaching the city, they often find themselves under educated and under qualified for most jobs. 

Plan India has been working in Rampur since 2004  with the support of our local partner VATSLAYA. After the amendment in the FCRA law, we implemented the program in the village. Since then numerous activities have been conducted through the Child Centric Community Development (CCCD) program. 

We have worked on providing water & sanitation at the school & village level, creating awareness around maternal & child health, educating about early childhood care & development and making quality education accessible to all children. 

Our team has worked for a long time and created some real change in Rampur. But we need your support to take Rampur and all it’s villagers to greater heights. Support Rampur and watch a village transform in front of your eyes.
