Community Development Program - Education

Every child has the fundamental right to be educated. OSDI realizes the necessity of education in uplifting the entire rural communities out of inter-generational poverty and debt trap. This project has been designed to provide quality education to children between the ages of 5 and 15 years by equipping them with basic literacy skills and improving the standard of education in areas where there is limited or no access to schools. The following projects have been undertaken in Education:

Temporary Learning Centre (TLC): Temporary Learning Centers have been set up that provide access to basic literacy skills such as reading, writing and counting to children who have never previously had the opportunity to attend a school due to the absence of adequate government schools and the inability to afford private schools located at a significant distance.

Adopted Schools: Apprehending the importance of education and the willingness of the local community to educate their children. OSDI has adopted two ghost schools by hiring full-time dedicated teachers.

Supporting Government Schools: OSDI is working in co-ordination with Government to support the Government Primary Schools in the rural areas. Hiring of local teachers is done to facilitate the students with quality education and efforts are made to improve the absenteeism ratio of students and teachers within these schools.

Recently, 12 schools are functioning under OSDI’s leadership.
