Project Description

Region: Asia

Country: India

Location: Pudukkottai

Total Budget: $54,746

Area of Focus: Basic education and literacy

Ranee's Girls Government Higher Secondary School was started in the year 1883, it is more than 130 years old school. At present 2300 students are studying in this school. There are 78 teaching staffs and 10 non- teaching staffs are working here. Out of which 839 Girl Students from VI to X standards in secondary standard are studying here. Since it is in urban area, mostly lower middle class students only seeking admissions in this school.


The state government provides insufficient funds to the school, causing the school children to suffer. Due the lack of class rooms Class 7th & 8th students are forced to sit open area under the Trees. It seems very pathetic, many students are struggling to concentrate on their studies in different type of whether conditions. If we implement the project to build four class rooms may accommodate more than 250 girl student needs every year.

Normally attendance is irregular, Absenteeism is higher than normal due to poor infrastructure sanitation & related health issues. The high dropout rates have been reducing the number of students every year. Hence students lack motivation to attend school & concentrate on their studies & extracurricular activities. Providing new classrooms to girl students it will be comfortable & motivational environment for the school children to focus on their education. The project will provide ample toilet & clean water facilities as needed.
