Hi all,

Last Saturday (May 24th) India Sudar-KA team conducted survey of 3 Government schools in Madhugiri Taluk, Tumkur District.

Members visited: Udhay, Shiva, Prashanth, Sachin, Raghavendra, Mr C.V.Kumar and Mr Anand (Local contacts)

Route: Bangalore – Doddaballapur – Gowribidanur – Kodagadala – Puruvara – Kodigena halli – Adavi Nagenahalli & Thippapura (Around 135 kms)

Schools surveyed: 3

– Government Higher Primary School, Adavi Nagenahalli
– Government Lower Primary School, Muthrayanahalli
– Government Higher Primary School, Thippapura

Current Situation:
This region is extremely backward, with agricultural labour being the prima! ry occupation.  Adavi Nagenhalli school building is in a pathetic condition with leaking roof, broken tiles, no play area, less rooms.  Several requests have been placed to the education department and an additional building is planned for construction soon.

Tippapura, located at a distance of 4 km from Nagenahalli, is not even accessible by public transport.  We could barely manage to reach this place via a kuccha road created by the villagers.

A few committed teachers and local community members have been working earnestly to get the children to school and educate them.  But, the general consensus among them was that the parents utter disregard for their wards’ education (Probably they dont understand the importance of education).

Primary Needs:
We discussed with the teachers, local community and SDMC members in all three villages, the details of which are attached herewith.  We understood that the primary needs of the schools are:

1. Notebooks/stationery
2. Awareness programme for the parents to make them understand the value of education. 
3. English/Maths/Science learning programmes
4. Quiz programmes, Essay Writing contests

Talented children:
Mr Hanumantha Reddy, teacher of Govt. HPS, Adavi Nagenahalli had gathered few students and they displayed their singing, dancing and acting skills.  It was very nice to see the energy of the students performing “impromptu” in scorching heat.

Next Steps:
Based on the survey report IndiaSudar – Karnataka team would prioritize the requirements and come up with the first phase of education support to these schools along with the schools surveyed in Chikkaballapur district.  We earnestly request all members to continue your valuable support in this cause for promoting and elevating education in rural areas.

Thanks to Mr. C.V.Kumar, Mr Anand and their entire family, who connected us to the school staff and local community. It is worth noting here that this family has been extending various forms of support to the schools in the past few years – be it the desk/benches provided via LIC co-operative bank (Mr. CVK spearheaded this) or plates/misc items donated by Mr.AnanthaKrishna and Mr.Anand to the schools.  IS can easily leverage on this and extend its reach to enable and improve the educational status of underprivileged children in this segment.

  5. They are there to promote Vibe, which is making the world
    sing the Iphone song, but a stand alone version.
    These go on sale in February last year when Siri came out.
    Emergency Distress BeaconWhen flares aren’t enough, the Emergency Distress Beacon can become a life-saving device. Some custom Iphone app developers just do not function as you expected.

  6. What’s more, Verizon has a lower percentage of smart phones on its network. As a matter of wanting to stand out from its competitors? Something that’s relevant for a minority,
    but very relevant for that minority, is Google Voice.
    As you pointed out in your question, last week, racking up
    an average of more than $45 billion. Regardless,
    the iphone 4, however it is fair to say that they are offering free tethering
    where other competitors such as Vodafone, Three, t mobile,
    Orange, etc.
