DOSTI3 2008

DOSTI3 - 2008 is the first pilot program for the DOSTI3 project. As part of the pilot project, we plan to focus on

(1) Offer financial assistance for students from poor families to attend school
(2) Enhance the library facility at the school
(3) Work towards increasing female enrollment in the schools

DOSTI3 (Dream of School through Inform, Involve, Inspire) is a community development project, aimed at providing quality education to financially backward children. The project provides financial assistance to these underprivileged children as well as helps fund the target schools where these children are likely to attend.

The Pilot Program Ground: MGM Public School, Idukki

As part of DOSTI3 - 2008, we identified MGM Public School, Chettukuzhy, Kochera PO, Idukki (DT), Kerala, one of the backward districts in Kerala to start the pilot project.

Achieving our first goal: Working with the officials of the school, we have identified the need for partial help for 55 students for the year 2008 and we are planning to provide Rs.900 (~$25) per student to meet part of the tuition fee for the year 2008.

Achieving our second goal: Working with the officials of the school, we have identified a list of books that will enhance the library. We are planning to donate the ~300 books specified in the list this year.

Achieving our third goal: The school will try to reach out to all girls who currently do not attend school and encourage them to attend the school. The goal for this year is to reach out to probable students within a radius of 3 kms.

MGM Public School: Where are we today?

MGM Public School, Chettukuzhy, Kochera PO, Idukki (DT), Kerala, today operates classes from KG to 8th grade. The photos capture a quick look at the facilites of the school today. With limited infrastructure, the class rooms are seperated with hard boards and do not have seperate rooms.

The library has very few books and doesnot match up to the standards required to provide students the quality reading opportunities.
