School Adoption Program

Vision –Mission :

    The future of India depends upon the quality of education imparted to our children. We have 43,447 Government Primary Schools and 3,029 Government High Schools in the state of Karnataka. We believe that it is the joint responsibility of the Government and citizens to improver school education, to provide incentives like mid-day meals, improve school infrastructure including state of the art information technology to all the Government schools in our state.

 
 

    Over 90% of the budget for School Education in Karnataka is spent on salaries to Government primary and secondary school teachers and as grant-in-aid to aided institutions, leaving very little for development of infrastructure in government schools.  There are an estimated 2.5 million children who are not enrolled or dropped out from schools and, even as efforts are being made to bring them to school, the need for additional resources has been growing rapidly.

Adopted  School in Udupi District

    We have begun the process of transforming school education in Karnataka by the active involvement of donors, non-government organizations and corporate sectors through the “School Adoption Programme” which we launched at the beginning of the new millennium. This paradigm shift in our policy has yielded satisfying results. In the last two years more than eight thousand schools have been adopted and an estimated 60 crore rupees has been spent on incentives, mid-day meals, infrastructure and technology.

     Under this programme the donors can select any school and prepare a ‘programme of action’ for a specific period for the all round development of the school or select specific areas of intervention aimed at improving the educational system of the school.  They can then enter into a *Memorandum of Understanding with the department for the implementation of the action plan.  The following is a suggestive list of priority actions that can be considered by potential donors under the ‘*School Adoption programme:
