[India Sudar] Tuition center: Hospet

From: Ramaseshan S <>

Dear All,

We have set up a new Tuition center at Lingapura in Hospet. Ms. Fathima BB, tuition teacher, would be teaching all students of primary/middle/high schools in the village. This Tuition is for under privileged students of Govt. school who cannot afford regular Tuitions. This project also targets to provide individual attention to children who find it difficult to cope with the Classroom teaching/sessions.

Attached is the project report for your reference.

Koppal Dist, Karnataka.

Dear Friends,

We(Raghavendra Prasad A R, Ramaseshan.S, Udhaya Kumar.V) have visited to Hosahalli Village, Koppal(Dist) – 583234, Karnataka (Near Hospet, 20 Km from Humpi, 350Km from Bangalore, North Karnataka) on 29-Dec-2007 to setup India Sudar tuition center.

We have visited to this village through Bhuvaneswari, She was taking tuition for this village poor students in past. Currently she is not able to continue this.

We have visited to Hosahalli Government School and had discussion with Head Master and some of the teachers, students. 396 students studying in this school and they are from 1st standard to 8th standard(10 teachers working). Some of the private school also available at nearby this village. Most of these students’ parents are illiterate, so they are not giving much important for the education.


We have explained our India Sudar activity to Head master & teachers. They are very impressed and ready to allocate separate class room to run our tuition center within school itself.

Currently we are starting our center in Fathima.BB(India Sudar center Teacher) house itself. Down the line we will move this center to Gov School. Bhuvaneswari taking ownership to invite only poor students and first generation kids for our center. India Sudar will start this center from Jan’08 to Apri’08. Yes of course this will be continued for next academic year also.

Our center will run for 7 days per week. Sunday will be used only 9th and 10th students.


We have to appreciate Bhuvaneswari, Who is really showing the interest to provide education for these village students. We have visited to Bhuvana house & she staying in very small house. Even she had several economical issues, still having the mentality to help village students. She is proving money is not a matter to provide service to poor students.

More requirements from Govt Primary School at Chikkarogudoo School – Karnataka

Chikkaballapur(district), Karnataka,
Dear friends,

As planned, we visited the school at Chikkakurugodu in Chikkaballapur district on Nov 1st (Kannada Rajyotsava Day). As with phase 1, it was a well-organized function in the school premises, presided over by the local dignitaries. Lunch followed, courtesy Sri. C.N.Mohan Rao.

A few satisying observations from our assessment are as follows:

– A quick inspection of the material we provided in phase 1 clearly suggested that it was put to “best use” by the students through the teachers and headmaster. What was especially heartening to see was the sample cursive handwriting notebooks of a few kids, with those flawless masterful strokes 🙂

– An interesting side-effect of our project execution here is the tremendous increase in the participation and contribution to the school by the localites. Sample these: 10+ chairs donated, School wall painted with a lot of useful information , Newspaper subscription and so on.

– The key contributing factor for these is the headmaster and his troupe of teachers, who have been working incessantly towards improving  the quality of education here.

Being impressed by our efforts, the resource personnel (CRP) arranged for a meeting with the local BEO (Block Education Officer) and a few assisting officers.  We elaborated on the vision/activities of our group and then had a brief discussion on the issues affecting the quality of education in the vicinity (Gauribidanur taluk and surrounding villages). The predominant ones are: drop outs due to lack of awareness (both parents and wards), increased inferiority complex due to competing private schools and lack of dedication on the part of teachers.

We intend to continue our efforts in this district to increase awareness and build confidence to improve enrollment, retention and learning. All helping hands towards this initiative are welcome :-).
