In the outskirts of Bangalore, there is a government school (Government Higher Primary School, Avalahalli) having around one hundred and fifty students of classes ranging from first to seventh standard.
Most of the children studying in this school are from poor socioeconomic background. Parents from surrounding areas are tempted to send their wards for petty works in order to earn small amount of money and reluctant to send their children to school.
This problem has been addressed partially by providing free midday meals to all students by an NGO. The midday meals has helped minimize dropout of the students.
However, the school lacks few basic facilities like separate toilets for boys and girls and drinking water.
Through Rotary club of Kalyan, we are trying to address the problem of dropout and quality education for the students by providing some of the essential facilities like separate toilets for boys and girls, tables and chairs, roof for the lobby, computers and other e-Learning facilities.
