Thinksharp Foundation team is helping 5 villages and approx more than 3000 rural children by providing better rural educational infrastructure through 5 StudyMall projects as of Aug 2017.
Our aim is to put one village one StudyMall throughout India. As we are progressing we are getting lot of inquiries to establish StudyMall from lot of villages . While we would love to help and set up StudyMall in each and every village that approaches us, however due to funds and operational challenges we prioritize villages.
Thinksharp foundation team has decided to help 10 villages in this financial year (preferably by Dec 2017). Out of this 10 villages one is Village Kalyachiwadi which will have Digital class under StudyMall project.
Thinksharp Foundation team Shraddha and Santosh visited village Kalyachiwadi as a part of pre visit on 05 Aug 2017. We were very fortunate to have with us Mr.Paste sir who has been very helpful and supportive throughout our entire visit of villages in Raigad district.
Kalyachiwadi is a small village in Tq.Karjat, Dist Raigad with a total population of 186 people. The total number of school/college going students is apprx 16. Nearest railway station is Neral connected by Mumbai rail.There is only school in the village i.e. Raigad Z.P.School Kalyachiwadi.
We visited Raigad Z.P.School Kalyachiwadi which enrolls children from 1st to 5th std . The total number of students in school is 23 (16 boys and 07 girls).Total number of teachers is 02 . There are total 02 RCC classrooms . There is no library, digital projector, computer, solar lamps or extra curricular activity infrastructure for children. There is electricity supply but it has power cut issues.
This is tribal school and many of the students are from poor family background. When we talked to students and discussed with teachers, we realized they have lot of potential to develop and grow provided they have access to better educational infrastructure. The children were less interactive due to language barrier and maybe lack of confidence. This village is in the interiors with no access to outside world making this children less interactive.
We were requested by parents, teachers and students to provide them with library, digital projector and any other beneficial educational infrastructure.
We are very excited to help this 23 students read and learn better. Our StudyMall project-Digital class in this school will create an motivation and increase interest among the tribal students to attend school. We aim to provide them games, toys and books that will enhance there interaction and confidence. Moreover it will also increase awareness among the parents on importance of education.
Please help us in providing them better rural educational infrastructure.
