School Transformation Program

School Transformation Program

A majority of government schools are dilapidated buildings that receive nominal amounts for maintenance. Basic facilities such as washrooms are unusable with no water connections, safety issues, no separate drinking water/ wash area, dull ambiance resulting in poor motivation level for students and teachers.

This program aims to provide and improve sanitation, drinking & hand wash facilities and other infrastructure improvement essential for the running of a school and to create an atmosphere of cheer and motivation while learning. The program will also set up fully equipped digital classrooms that can be used to enhance learning across different grades.

Key components of the program include – Sanitation (separate toilets for boys and girls), Hygiene (separate drinking & dishwash area), Infrastructure (shade area, colour work in school building), Digital Support (smart classrooms, tablets), and Behaviour Change Communication (BCC).

2. School Transformation via WASH

Poor sanitation, lack of access to clean drinking water, and inadequate personal hygiene are responsible for 88% of water borne diseases among children in India. In the year 2012-13, we first conducted a survey in 35 schools and understood that they lacked a number of important facilities that are needed by a child for a proper education. Of all the problems identified, following were critical: Lack of proper sanitation facilities Lack of hygienic access to water Absence of a vibrant and motivating campus.
