Adopt A School: Mohammad Hussain Govt. High 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 identified the govt. school named 'Mohammad Hussain Govt High School ' located in New Hafeezpet, Rangareddi district, Andhra Pradesh, India suitable for adoption. Sakshum will be looking into the overall development of this govt. 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, 3 govt. teacher and 8 vidya volunteers. Total number of students are 472. 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 mentioned End Goals provide the checklist to be completed to meet our objectives.


Mission: Our mission is to provide all the basic facilities for this school in the area of education, health and infra-structure and make it capable to provide quality education.
