Challenge

Annual Status of Education Report (ASER) by Government of India survey results show that in Telangana of 4.2 million children studying in 1-7th standards, an average of children who can read sentences and do subtraction is 47% and 53% respectively. The report also shows that only 55% children in 8th standard can do division. This project will positively impact the education levels of about 5000 students annually, particularly in science, which is needed for the development of the nation.

Solution

The Society will develop a dedicated laboratory for school children with best / high end facility which would help and promote learning of science with experiments and interactive sessions. The Society has acquired infrastructure facility of about 3500 sft to establish a science laboratory and library and has already started equipping with basic facilities. Children will be taught and trained in activities. Mobile labs will be developed to reach out to students from rural areas.

Long-Term Impact

The project will help 5000 students annually to understand the concepts of science better, which will lead to more students taking up science as career and overall increase of quality of research. Strong foundation in science will help rural children to develop into a community of potential nation builders. Students from government schools and colleges will get better opportunity to compete with students from regular institutions, leading to more knowledgeable and responsible citizens.
