Indiasudar-KA team had partially setup the computer training center in August 2009 in Chikkakurugodu as part of the India Sudar Computer Shikshana Kendra Project.






Recognition of IS efforts:

We started in this district by providing notebooks and stationeries to Chikkakurugodu school in 2006. Since then, we have setup library, computer center while continuing to provide notebooks every year – an effort that has helped this school become the number one in this taluk segment and also one among the top five in the district. We have also grown over these years to support more than 10 schools with the total number of beneficiaries upwards of 1500, all from utterly backward segments of the district (See https://indiasudar.wordpress.com/category/ka-chikkarogudoo/)

In recognition of IS efforts over the last few years, Sri. Shivashankar Reddy, the honourable MLA of Gowribidanur presented a letter of appreciation and gratitude to India Sudar and also felicitated the IS volunteers. This was followed by cultural programmes and a meeting with the parents.


Special thanks:

– Synopsys and Valtech for having provided excellent systems/laptops

– Azim Premji Foundation for providing the Educational/ Interactive software CDs and make this project a success.

– Special thanks to all volunteers for setting up and installation of the computers

We earnestly request you to continue your support for elevating educational standards of the underprivileged in rural segments.




CMRC Library and Learning Center – GULBARGA

Hello All,

Greetings …. !

Last weekend (30th oct 09 – 31st oct 09) we (Vinod, Rama and Prashanth Gane) visited Gulbarga for setting up first pilot Learning and Library Center. Agenda was to set up 4 Learning Centers for Janani CMRC Kamalapur, Janashakti CMRC Sulepet, Sarvodaya CMRC Kalag, Jyoti CMRC Kodli, Arunodaya CMRC Nagaidalai and 1 Full time teacher in Ratal Govt School and 1 Library center in Kamalapur.

We started our meeting by 0900 hrs and in a short while Learning Center Teachers from all the CMRCs joined.
There were,

  1. 3 Teachers from Jannani CRMC, Kamalapura
  2. 1 Teacher from Janashakti CMRC, Sulepet
  3. 1 Teacher from Arunodaya CMRC, Nagaidalai

who joined the discussion. We selected 1 teacher for Kamalapura and 1 for Sulepet. Two selected teachers are ladies and male candidates were not promosing and dedicated enough for Learning Centers. Teacher from Arunodaya we could not select as he was very experienced and was not having Science and Maths Knowledge. From Kalagi CMRC and Kodli CMRC teachers did not turn up so we could not finalise the Learning centers.

Selected Teacher Information:

  1. Bharthi, 9743029939 – BA, BEd for Sulepet – 1000 Rs for Per Month till March 2010
  2. Gayatri Kallappa, Currenlty studying PUC Science for Kamlapura – 1000 Rs for Per Month till March 2010

Learning and Library Center Location

  1. Govt School (Temp) Sulepet.
  2. Community Hall Maragutti Village.
  3. IS Community Library, Kamalapur CMRC.

About Community Library Centers – Kamapapur
We have provided 176 Community and chidren books to Kamalapur CMRC. There was very good response from all the CMRC members as well as Kavitha Madam, CMRC Manager. We asked to maintain a Book Shelf along with the Library Register which would be used to track the books taken for reading. We advised CMRC manager that if rent system for books is implemented then it would be good for long term maintenance of the Library. With a IN and OUT entry in the register we will come to know about the interest of individual person so that for the future Library centers we can pick related books.
Ex. 5 days books for free renting and 6th day onwards till the book is not returned they can charge minimum fine of 25 paise to 50 paise and the money collected with these can be utilized for further book purchase as well as maintaining.

About Learning Centers

  1. Every month 2 test would be conducted by teacher and results to be shared with IS. This will enable us to find the performance of the teacher as well as find the GAP where we need to concentrate.
  2. Evaluation for Teachers.
  3. Expectation set with the Teachers. Based on the students response and learning capacity Teachers can make necessary improvement plans.
  4. Sharad the complete career path poster with Teachers as well as Kamalapur CMRC Manager. Kavitha Madam assured that she will try to get it painted in the school as well as CMRC. This will help students to know the different options available after PUC II.

We this is the pilot project which we started we are 100% sure that in coming months we will reach to most needy places.

We are very thank full to HM Kulkarni Sir, who took time to make this visit successful.

Dear All,
I visited HOPE World Wide India – HOME, Trichy on 31st October 2009 and it is home for 53 orphans and semiorphans with age group varies from 5 to 15. This home is managed by Mr. Karunanidhi with major donations from local well wishers at Trichy.
DSC09949This home started in 2003 and have good building donated by two NRIs, Dr. Marvin and his brother. According Mr. Karunanidhi, Administrator, they are get funding from Dr. Marvin and his brother for operations like food, accomodation and other daily expenses, but they are managing funds to support all 53 children’s education through local well wishers.
They installed many donation boxes at most of the shops at Trichy and collecting funds though that. Also, they have few people to donate money periodically.
In this home, they can provide accomodation for minors only (till age of 18 and below). Once students crossed 18 years, they are not allowed to stay at home and they need to find their way.
There are 2 girls and 1 boy lost their parents around  6 years back and they were brought to this home by their far-relatives. They grown up at this home and doing II nd year B A Economics and B Sc Zoology at Trichy.
Since both girls crossed 18 years, Mr. Karunanidhi helped them to find a small rented portion near to that home and they are continuing their college from there.
Kritika, doing BSc Zoology, wants to continue her studiest till M.Phil and get into some govt job. Krupa, wants to go for job after her B.A Economics and continue her studies as part time. Based on my interaction, both girls wants to study well and get into good job to help needy people.
Mr. Karunanidhi is looking for someone to help both girls to manage their room rent, daily expenes, bus passes and their semester fee as well. Here is their monthly expenses 
Rent per month Rs. 700,
Electricity Bill Rs. 125 per month
Groceries and food items Rs. 600 per month
Bus pass Rs. 100 per month
Educational support for both girls :
Semester fee, Book fee and Exam fee comes around Rs. 6000 per semester for both.
However, they managed to pay their college fee till now and they would need support from next semester onwards. Mr. Karunanidhi said that we can pay their college fee to college directly through cheque.
This home was referred by Kumudam Reporter Mr. Karthikeyan. He is one of the good reporter and he is doing more than his work to help poor and deserved students.
