Give rural students the Chance of a Lifetime
Schools in rural areas suffer from significant deficiencies in basic infrastructure. In particular, shortage of experienced & qualied teachers and irregular power supply during January – April, hamper preparations for 10th standard exams.
Professionally developed Audio-Visual Curriculum and Solar Powered study lamps go a long way in helping the students to fare better in the crucial exams.
Let us Ignite Minds during the school day and Light up study hours in the evening.
Vidya Deepa Program (Increased Study Hours)
Study lamps are distributed to 10th standard students for preparing for exams at home. The students bring the lamp to school every alternate day to recharge using a solar panel. After the final exams, the lamps are returned to the school to be distributed to the next year students.
More than nine thousand of these lamps have been distributed over the last four years with resultant improvement in the exam performance of over 25,000 children. There are several thousands more who can benefit from this program.
Vidya Mitra Program (Increased Study Hours)
This is an integrated, portable solar powered Audio-Visual teaching system, complete with a projector, speakers and a mini computer pre-loaded with multimedia teaching material for Math, Science and English Grammar suitable for schools following the Karnataka State Curriculum.
Over 70 High Schools have received Vidya Mitra and have reported back very positive results and hundreds more await such help.
