Annexure 1 has details about the schools and their location

9. Location of school/s

Urban, Hyderabad, AP

110. Specify the type of education provided (e.g. basic literacy, vocational training etc.).

Basic literacy and also conventional education. The schools that they go to follow

state government syllabus to train students for government examinations.

111. Please tell us about your teaching techniques (conventional vs. alternative).
Conventional teaching methods are used.

112. What is the literacy rate in your local community?

We are in urban area (outskirts of Hyderabad) and hence the literacy is almost 100 percent.

13. Describe the socio-economic background of the children and their parents (e.g. education, occupational). If any of your students are employed, please tell us about that as well
Most of theses children are orphans, and they came to us through their relatives or guradians, who cannot
afford to grow them. Rest are all single parent children and are from very poor and rural places.

114. What are the admission criteria for the students to join your school?

The preference is for full orphans, and then for single parent and for economically poor background.

How many children attend your school currently?

There is no school run by us. We send our children to private schools near by.

What is your boy: girl ratio? About 50-50%

What is your teacher: student ratio? N/A

115. In addition to education, does your group provide any other services to the children in your schools (e.g. food, health care, clothing, etc.)?

The school is home for all the children, and hence provide all the basic amenities like food, clothes,

health care along with education.

116. How do you perceive that education will improve the lives of the children in your village?


As tribal people do not have education, outsiders easily exploit them. They are no longer isolated communities which increases the need for their education so that they are well informed of their constitutional laws and rights, are better able to compete with the outside world and build capacities to increase their scope of livelihood to other sectors as well. They need to develop abilities to deal with the government and its machinery and protect themselves from being cheated for even simple things like ration-cards, title deeds and caste certificates. Due to lack of education facilities their employment opportunities even within the government are restricted to that of chaprasis (watchmen), drivers or sweepers in spite of reservations in other levels of employment as well.

Please also refer to the concept note in Annexure II.

21. Do you help your students with their future education efforts after they have passed out of your school?
Post-School Support
1. Members of our organization conduct counseling and guidance to the students.
2. We advice them how to apply for the job oriented courses and how to build up their future career.
3. We also show them ways and means to secure suitable employment in various fields and firms.
4. We also help them in arranging financial assistance through private donors, lions club and such other
agencies depending upon the requirements.
5. We also help them in learning computer courses offered by local teachers and philanthropists and help
them in becoming self sustained..

22. Are there any other schools (Kindergarten/Balwadi, Elementary school, High school) in the area? If so,

please list the schools and the range of classes each of them offers.
There are many private schools around which run from nursery to 10th std. There are also some
intermediate and degree colleges.

23. Is your program different from that provided at these schools? Please explain.
We help the kids go to the nearest schools since ours is not a school by itself. We only provide shelter to the

orphans and help them go the school. Not all kids go to the same school. They go to different schools in the

same area.
We did make some of the kids go to a local govt school, but realized later that Government schools are not

so productive and the kids have been having difficulty in getting along with the kids going to the school


24. Why are the children in your school/s not attending government/other schools in the local area?
Govt school are not able to provide sufficient education and standards and we have had bas experience when

they initially had gone to govt school.

25. Do you try to involve the parents of the children in the running of the school (e.g. in setting the syllabus

etc.)? Please specify.

26. What are your expansion plans for the future (e.g. adding more classes or schools)?
The current facility is rented and is expensive and cannot accommodate the current strength of 36 kids. We recently acquired a land (640 Sq. Yd) through other donors and we have now started construction of our own facility where children can have their own home instead of rented premises.
We are now looking out for such donors and trying to raise funds locally for the building constrution. If there is

support for the children education, the local donation that we raise could be diverted for infrastructure


27. Do you have any suggestions on how Asha can be a positive influence in changing the education
scenario in India?
ASHA for Education and partnering Ngo’s have worked very hard to address educational needs of children

in INDIA mostly for normal children. Asha and the partnering NGOs should also work for better education

methodologies for visually, physically and mentally challenged people as well and make them close to or

better than normal people. These people also have right to live the way the normal children would. There

are not many trained people who could help these people. So, helping in making or training people for

them to be able to teach needy people like these would definitely make them benefit.

28. If possible, please provide us with the contact information of two individuals from your community who can describe the impact of your program.
