For the months July-Sept 2015, Ashwini Charitable Trust (ACT) has made significant strides in completing the task of upgrading the resources at the Government school adopted by us so that many more children from the urban slums of Bangalore can get a better education in a well-equipped and functional school.
Improving the Infrastructure at the school
Activities at the school
The school reopened on 1st June, and ACT volunteers are back to assist the teachers and students with their academic work,
For the months April-June 2015, Ashwini Charitable Trust (ACT) has taken up construction of a unit comprising of a Kitchen & Store room cum a Watchman’s room at the Government Tamil Higher and Primary School, Murphy Town, which we have adopted. Our aim in constructing this unit is to clear up classrooms, which are currently being used as kitchen and storage spaces for old furniture. Once these rooms are clear, we want to use them as a science lab and school library.
One main focus for Ashwini Charitable Trust (ACT) in the 2014 calendar year was to ensure all-round improvement of the Government Tamil Higher and Primary School, Murphy Town, which we have adopted. We are focusing on infrastructure works like the Repair and Maintenance work and Volunteering activities.
To enhance the quality of education, we have organized volunteering activities on all the days that the school is open. Everyday ACT volunteers teach the students of all classes basic English and Math skills. We are especially working with the children of all classes.Volunteers also teach computers to the teachers and children.
ACT facilitates the CSR activities of companies in the school. As a part of this initiative, employees of 4 companies have volunteered in the school in the past few months.
ACT has interfaced with these companies on behalf of the school and organized the following activities:
ACT ensures that at least one of the Trust members is present when the CSR activities are taking place, so that the events go off smoothly.
