We identified and selected the schools based on the interest of the teaching faculty and Parents Teachers Association. The Schools in rural India rely mostly on Text Books for their studies and they do not have access to latest teaching aids such as touch screen Smart Boards with internet connection or a simple E Learning module. This project aims at providing a cheap but effective E Learning module. Still in most of the rural Junior and High schools the student sit on the floor to read and write. This project also aim at providing benches and desk in class room and it will certainly improve the comfort and concentration the students in their studies. The schools in Rural area do not have access to pure drinking water. The students are drinking polluted water and it affects thier health. This project has plan to provide water purifier and water taps for washing hand and to provide a toilet for Girls and boys and Incinerator to destroy Napkins which are very essential for a Happy school.

The respective schools which receive the E Learning Module, Bench & desk, Toilet, water purifier (Drinking water), Pipe line, Incinerator will attract more number of students thereby improving the overall literacy, healthy sanitation in the community. The school drop outs will be certainly less. The learning by the students will become easy and enjoyable. Directly 10000 students will be benefited year after year

The Host Rotarians will frequently visit the school to verify how properly the E Learning Module is installed and how effectively the E Learning Module is put to use to teach the students and also will visit the Manufacturing factories and see that the wooden ,Desk, Benches, Tables are manufactured to the specifications mentioned in the quotation.They will oversee the distribution of the Desks ,Benches and table to the respective schools.
