Basic Education and Literacy





History Logs

Project Description

Region: South-East Asia

Country: India

Location: Ludhiana

Total Budget: $39,500

Areas of Focus: Basic education and literacy, Economic and community development

Provision of 2000 Benches & Desks in Government Primary Schools of Revenue District of Ludhiana, Punjab, India. These Schools are basically meant for impoverished students of the society. Many of these schools do not have sufficient benches and Desks to sit and study. Rather they sit on a hessian mat strip on floor keeping their books and note books on their lap. It becomes very uncomfortable during extreme weather. We will provide 2000 desks and benches costing US$ 39,500 in selected 45 schools.

This will uplift approximately 5000 impoverished ongoing students of 45 Primary schools of Ludhiana from floor to comfortable sitting on desks and benches.

When do you anticipate your project will take place?

Within 60 days of receipt of Grant Funds.

Community: The project will take place in 45 Government Primary schools within areas of Ludhiana, shortlisted by a team of senior Rotarian of Rotary Club Ludhiana and duly recommended by district education administration. It is important to mention that in these schools no fee is charged from the students and above all mid day meal is also served free of cost to all the students.

Project will help Economic & Community Development for skilled Industrial working section of families of such student.

Amount Requested from The Rotary Foundation






Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
