Adopt A School: Chinna Kandiguda School


Improving the quality of Education, renovating the infra-structure and developing it as a centre of quality education for the slum children in the area.

About the Project

Sakshum has found this govt. school named 'Chinna Kandiguda Primary School ' located in Malkajgiri mandal, Rangareddi district, Andhra Pradesh, India suitable for adoption. Sakshum will be looking into the overall development of this slum school. Sakshum's Adopt A School initiative is about bringing a positive change in the current setup of slum or other schools which lack basic needs and quality education.

Scenario at the Time of Adoption: It is a government run slum school with one principal, 1 govt. teacher and 2 vidya volunteers. Total number of students are about 120. All of them are from the neighborhood, most of them are the children of daily wage workers around the area. The students are not being charged any fee and any child is allowed to register in the school any day throughout the year. School receives quite less aid from the govt. Below are the details of current facilities which need an immediate improvement:


1. Education:

* The school has 5 classes from standard 1 to 5 and an aangadwadi. There are only 2 class rooms available.

* There are only 2 vidya volunteers and 1 teachers for a strength of 120 students.

* There is pretty high drop out rate of children in the school

* Students do not have notebooks and other stationary like pen, pencil, rubbers etc.


2. Infra Structure:

* There are 5 restrooms and only 1 is usable. Rest all are in a miserable situation and are completely useless.

* School does not have a boundary and a playground.

* Making some virtual partitions in the classroom so that more than one class can be taught comfortably.

* School area is full of rocks and stones and is difficult to even walk.

* Grains used for mid day meal are dumped into classrooms.

* There is an electricity connection but no fans, light sources etc.


3. Health:

* All the children are from poor families, they are unlikely to have had any health check up.
