“Transforming Schools into Uttam Schools: Improved Quality of School Education”
India is one of the world’s fastest-growing economies. However, according to the Annual Status of Education Report (ASER) (January 2015), the learning quality of rural schools’ students are highly deficient, that further obstructs the emerging workforce of the country to cope with its economy’s demand. Therefore, to sustain the quality of the workforce, ISRN conceptualized the project aiming to uplift the educational facilities in a certain number of government and charitable institutions of rural India.
Build the future workforce in India through improvement in the quality of education and learning in schools and provide a better environment for the children and teachers.
- Bring infrastructural changes in terms of introducing student-friendly learning tools
- Impart training to teachers, and improve the quality of learning of school children
- Creating sensitivity about the environmental and behavioral issues not only among the students but also among the teaching and non-teaching staffs
- Provide 24x7 power backup and promoting renewable method of energy by installing Solar power plants
- Inculcating the habit of extra reading to strengthen their knowledge apart from the daily curriculum by upgrading the library to the state of the art library
- Encourage girls from far-flung areas to study in schools by creating the infrastructure for them
- Improve the health and hygiene of school children and the staff
The project contributes to improving the quality of learning of school children in rural India by adopting at least one of government/charitable institutions’ run schools. Adhering to the existing curriculum in these schools, it brings infrastructural changes in terms of introducing student-friendly learning tools, improving health and hygiene, improving the external environment, imparting training to teachers, among others. The overall emphasis will be on improving the quality of learning of school children through direct and indirect interventions.
ISRN has worked with 43 schools and 2 colleges in states like Uttar Pradesh, Uttrakhand, Haryana, Madhya Pradesh, and Delhi with support from MLA Fund, Vikram Cement Works, CSR Fund and IFFCO-Tokio General Insurance Company Limited's CSR initiative.
