STEP (School Transformation and Empowerment Project) is a key initiative of Mantra4Change. It is currently present at 13 schools at Bangalore. We partner with government and low-fee private schools to improve the teaching-learning process in classrooms. Having witnessed the impact for last two years and having created a model that can be replicated to more number of schools, we are enthused to take STEP into 10 more schools in Bangalore.
The funds raised would be used in following activities over a period of two years:
- Mantra will partner with schools for two years.
- Need assessment will be done and an action plan will be drafted.
- Teacher training and coaching plan will be executed for the two years’ time period.
- Leadership training and coaching plan will be executed for two years’ time period.

- Empowerment of School development and monitoring committee will be done to build strong accountability structure in government-run schools.
Cost incurred on adoption of one school will be around 2.5 Lakhs for a year translating to INR 500 per child per year.
Mantra4Change will be sharing reports on a half yearly basis on the progress of program implementation.
