BANGALORE Visited to Baale Mane, Gopalapura Girls Home

Hello all,

Last Saturday, 27 Feb 2010 Udhay and I visited “Baale Mane” and met Mr. Venkatesth, Ms Mary, Ms Bella and all the children in this home. The management was quite happy to welcome us and took us around the home to show the facilities. Also the children showed their talents by singing and dancing.

Total children: 57
They go to different Govt Schools nearby.

In High School: 8th – 8 students
9th – 6 students
10th – 4 students

From the initial look, with respect to infrastructure and facilities, this place looked quite good and neatly maintained. As Udhay mentioned previously they are getting regular funds from UK based charity trust and also has support from “Paraspara” trust in Bangalore.

We talked to the management and also the children about their educational needs. Most of the students required some tuition in the evenings to improve their knowledge and get good marks. Especially the need of tuition is in the subjects – English, Maths and Science. We have suggested the management to find a tuition teacher who can take tuitions to the students in the evenings.

During our visit, we noticed that “Baale Mane” has few Computers in their computer center and there is a computer teacher who is available some times. Since there is this problem of power not available and there is no UPS, this computer training is not regular.

We also noticed there is a small set of books in their Library. Since the children in “Baale Mane” has all age groups, most of the books are not relevant for Primary school students. Students also requested for some newspapers for daily read. Improving this library was one of the thoughts, by providing good books to all age groups of children.

Another thing we observed is that the requirement of Career counselling, as there are few students completing 10th std and II year PUC.
