We are supporting a school in an identified rural area of UP, near town Dataganj of Badaun district.  The school we currently support has minimum infrastructure and facilities around 12 classrooms with around 450 enrolled students and from 6th to 12th. There are 3 labs  rooms and primary school rooms are being built, meagre as it sounds, there is a lot of scope for improvement. The quality of education needs urgent attention and support. We recently added two classroom furniture to the school for kids.

Hence, we are looking to raise funds to avail resources so that we can meet the needs of the school- infrastructural and organizational, re-train teachers and/or employ ones so they can meet current educational requirements. These funds will also go into the construction of 4 new rooms for primary school. Currently we are working out the strategy to have enough resources to adopt the school fully and implement the plans for the better education. Apart from this long running project, we are also working on 3 sub-projects for the school, namely:

Library Campaign:

We plan to set up a library in the school, which will be equipped with books for the students as well as teachers. The aim will be to inculcate a sense of learning and knowledge in the students. Under this campaign, we are looking to get in touch with interested parties to provide us with the required funds to set up the infrastructure of the library, books and so forth. Please visit the link for details of this campaign: http://icfdr.org/help-build-a-library-for-rural-kids-donate-books/

Support a Child Education:

Under this we invite people who are willing to contribute to the welfare of poor and underprivileged children, by taking up the financial responsibly for their education at the primary level. They can support a child’s education by donating a small amount of INR 3500 per annum which will go towards the child’s yearly tuition fee, books and clothing. We are also planning to bring in nutrition support wherein children who are not able to meet their basic nutritional requirement will be provided with nutritious food and other necessities. http://icfdr.org/be-a-part/adopt-sponsor-ngo/
