Donate to improve the quality of education in rural areas

 

Transforming lives Village wise  

 

An Overview

The conditions of schools in many parts of rural India are abysmal. The student–teacher ratio is high; facilities such as drinking water and toilets are lacking; the quality of teaching and classroom materials is poor. Teachers are burdened with myriad activities other than teaching, which leaves little time for meaningful engagement with their students. The new non competitive education system in India has brought stress-free education for young students at one level. However, in the absence of exams, teachers, especially in some Govt schools, cannot reliably assess their children’s academic progress. Even if they find some children lagging behind in a few subjects, there are hardly any coaching classes or extra tuitions available for children in rural areas. Further, children often do not receive any support or guidance at home since many of their parents are illiterate. Such conditions in many rural schools are leaving rural children at a disadvantage and offer limited career options. Girls face even more difficulties. The dropout rate after the primary and secondary school levels among girls is alarmingly high. In villages, girls are responsible for looking after their siblings, doing household chores and working in agricultural fields; parents often do not value girls’ education.

 

What?

Educate India initiative aims to create positive change and secure a better future for schoolchildren in rural India. The initiative integrates Social Activities in Indian Framework’s key programs on water security, food security, and social justice. First launched in 2013, the initiative has grown with the generous support received from donors and partners.

 

Why?

In rural India, most of the 6.50+ lacs schools are unsafe, dilapidated, unsanitary, and un-stimulating learning environments for children. More than 128 million children are going to schools without:

How?

Dilapidated and unsafe rural schools are transformed into secure, healthy, and stimulating learning environments that include life skills education, digital literacy training, and good governance awareness, which transforms the lives of the schoolchildren, especially girl children who have long been disadvantaged, and gives those tools for a better future.

 

School buildings are renovated and repaired to include rainwater-harvesting systems, clean drinking water, separate toilets for boys and girls, sanitary kitchen facilities for meal prep, and levelled school grounds with plantation, meeting areas, and play equipment. The team Social Activities in Indian Framework works with the community and school management committees to build their capacities to sustain the assets created under the project.

 

In the completed schools, school management committees are active and involved, student attendance has increased, girls stay in school longer and wait longer to marry, and students are more motivated and empowered. The knowledge students gain in life skills education, digital literacy, and good governance training has impacted their families as well as their communities.

 

A brighter and more promising future awaits …
