Summary

ACT's mission is to send underprivileged children of unskilled and impoverished laborers to school. ACT facilitates and empowers the children of government schools to bring them on par with those in private schools. ACT adopted two government schools, in July 2013 and September 2016, and has undertaken the 'renewal' and 'repair' of the existing school buildings and premises and improve the existing utilities such as toilets and water tanks which are in ruins.

Challenge

When ACT adopted the school, the establishment was in a dilapidated state: broken flooring, furniture, termite infested walls, damaged roof making the classrooms open to rain, weeds and rubbish in the playground, dysfunctional toilets and lack of safe water, unlivable watchman's quarters. All this made the school a very unsafe environment for children. Of the 118 students who are currently enrolled in the school, the daily attendance is only about 70 students. You can help them return to school.

Solution

ACT has already undertaken several renovation activities in the past 6 months. Remedial measures have been started for pest control, re-cementing and repainting broken walls and flooring and re-tiling roofs. This project will address - repair, paint and rainproof classrooms, retile floor. Build new class rooms,a science lab and a security room; Improve playground and introduce sports; Rainwater harvesting and waste management; Termite treatment - maintenance at regular intervals.

Long-Term Impact

ACT ensures a rich learning environment by improvements in classroom interaction and quality of engagement with the children and their families. ACT's volunteers have pitched in to improve the absenteeism/dropout rates by building infrastructure,introducing new learning processes, art classes and fun activities in the school. Our programs include -Health,Hygiene and Sex education for the children; Child Rights Programs; Reading, Math and Science made fun through play way methods;Sports programs
