Project Description

The aim of the project is to start a computer center in a community supported rural high school in Kondlahalli village in Chitradurga district, in central Karnataka. This village is in one of the poorest regions in Karnataka, but there is a huge interest in education in the community. The community feels that education is the way they can break out of this poverty circle.

This project is partially supported by the community and the project would be a self sustained ongoing project. One of reasons for supporting this project is that Asha wants to encourage such endeavors of community's investment in the education.

The computers would be used for computer-aided education to sumplement their regular classroom studies. The software would be obtained from Azim Premji foundation and other sources and would be highly interactive and encourage the students to get a first hand experience of working on the computers. In the first phase the students of grades 10th, 9th and 8th would be using the computers.

Purpose / Goals

Asha is supporting the partial cost of buying and installing 4 computers and related educational software. The funding would be 50% grant to the school and rest 50% would a grant to S3IDF which will give it to the school as a loan.

  • If it is towards a project that is currently being supported, it will go towards the budget that was already approved for that project from its funding chapter. It will not be in addition to the approved budget.
  • If it is towards a project that is currently being supported, for something that is not covered in the budget that was approved, it has to be approved at a chapter before the funds can be sent.
  • In either case, the website has to be updated with the budget proposal and other details before funds can be sent.
  • If the project is not actively supported by AFE currently, the funds will be used towards other projects.
