Reducing school drop outs in rural India



In India rural children face challenges to achieve educational success, with over 50% of students unable to complete schooling through high school. Our project's strategy is to change this situation by strengthening the rural classroom and quality of education for the students. The project aims to ensure that rural children get the required support and inputs for increasing school success.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The levels of school drop outs is high in rural schools and starts to increase in middle school. Primary reason for this is lack of enabling school environments, poor regularity to school, lack of individual teacher attention, learning challenges of rural students, all leading to poor learning levels in elementary school. When these children go to middle school and beyond, they are unable to cope up and eventually drop out by high school.

How will this project solve this problem?

A comprehensive package is provided for strengthening primary and upper primary rural class-rooms by providing: a para teacher to provide individual attention to children; classroom infrastructural needs, like electrification, fans, lights; note books and educational aides; computer education; nutritional supplementation; transportation access to school; and most of all addressing children's learning challenges early on, so they are able to achieve class and age appropriate learning milestone.

Potential Long Term Impact

The project will strengthen rural children early on in primary and upper primary school, so that they are able to learn and achieve school success. This will lead to reduced school drop outs in rural areas, and ensure that 100% of students complete high school successfully. Over time this will elevate the educational status of every village which is sure to transform these communities level of empowerment and ability to make informed decisions towards their own development.
