Future India Team managed to meet 20000 students at 260 government schools in Kolar Taluk, Karanataka in November 2016.
Our target is to meet, greet and gift note books to all students in remote government schools from kolar taluk every year. Usually, We start with few challenges including funding part, but our target is achieved with great support from well wishers and volunteers every year.
Kolar taluk is about 60km from Bangalore. It is known for agriculture and Gold mine. There is severe water scarcity and people find difficulty in getting water for daily life and farming.
There are 300+ government schools in Kolar Taluk with 25000 students. Most of them are the children of farmers and daily wage workers. Though these kids manage to reach schools, most often we see school dropouts due to unaffordablity. Our goal is to motivate them to attend schools and learn with right note books and stationaries. We learn from all the teachers that note books arranged by Future India Trust are great help for all students.
All of us could see the smiles and happiness after receiving note books. At end of the day, we leave the school campus with innocent kids shouting “Thank you sir”, which is worth millions !!!.
This event is not possible without your support – Volunteers with their families, Synopsys team, teachers, CRPs, well wishers and students. Future India Team thanks all the volunteers. Also, we enjoy the hospitality at every school – sweets, fruits, cumumber, mixer, biscuits, soft drinks ,hot drinks and lunch sometime.
We also thank the note book vendor – TLS Papers & Products. TLS gives enough time to collect and settle the money for his invoice.
Future India Team express our heartfelt thanks to Mr. Veeranna Gowda sir (VG sir). He helps us to track the progress and is ready to offer any kind of support. It is a wonderful team work and Future India Team appreciates everyone for their sincere efforts.
Goals for Y2017: We could see the need for exam pads and water bottles. There are few schools running with less teachers – we can identify local teachers and help the students by paying nominal salary every month until government fills the vacancies. Again, this is not the permanent solution, but a small support from Future India Trust.
We need your strong support to start early and reach all students by Middle of June 2017 again.
