This year, through the school kit distribution project, we were able to reach out to over 28000 children across the state of Karnataka! The funds raised through contributions for the project on globalgiving played a very inportant role in the success of this project.

The project has the following stages - Collection of data (need analysis), Fund Raising and Procurement of materials and finally the distribution of the school supplies to the needy students.

Volunteers were actively involved in every stage of the project- right from need analysis stage to the distribution in rural areas.

Needs Analysis

The information regarding the requirement of school kits for children was collected from the volunteers who serve on the ground level. For schools outside Bangalore, we relied upon our network of Sevavratis. These Sevavratis are involved full-time in social work and they are spread across Karnataka. They work in the remotest of the villages. For schools within Bangalore, we collected data from our network of cluster coordinators and zonal school coordinators. These volunteers work with the schools in their region/cluster/zone and are better equipped to assess the need of the children in consultation with the school authorities. This year we supported around 18,700 children from completely rural parts and around 10000 children were from underprivileged backgrounds within the Bangalore city limits.


Distribution logistics has always been a challenge - but with the support of volunteers, we were able to manage this task. Our efforts have supported more than 28000 children spread across 440 schools and eductional institutions.

For all rural distributions, we utilised the services of a well known cargo operator, to pick up the cargo at our office and deliver to the recipient’s address. For schools within Bangalore, we had our volunteers get their cars to transport the school kits from our office to the respective schools, except in very few cases, where we arranged for a cargo rickshaw to transport school kits locally. 

Hundreds of volunteers participated in the school kit distribution.

Overall, we have recieved a very positive response from donors, Volunteers and beneficiaries. Many of the school authorities have expressed their gratitude for the support they recieved.

The project is well on track so far. We have collected the requirements of these school kits through our volunteers and partner NGO's who are working on the ground level with the underprivileged children and Government schools.

The materials required for the distribution is also getting ready. We have recieved some part of the requirement- The rest of the order can be placed based on the availbilty of the funds. Pictures of the school bag, notebooks and few staionery has been attached with this report.

As we have recieved an overwhelming response from donors through Global giving, we have now increased the reach of the project. The target number of children to be supported (through global giving funds) has been increased from 2000 to 3000. We are hopefull of reaching this target.

We are currently in the process of finalising the distribution schedule to the variuos rural parts. The work of distributing these school supplies to the children in rural parts will be done completely through Volunteers. Many of the donors of the school kits also choose to volunteer for the distribution.

The complete report with the list of schools and children reached through this project will posted at the completion of the project which is expected to be around last week of July.
