Story

Who are we?

Avakaasha Foundation has been working with students and people from rural areas since 2015. We provide teachers for key subjects and help the schools and villages build basic facilities for the children from remote rural areas. We are currently working with three schools in Kundapura Taluk, Udupi District, Karnataka - Government High School-Molahalli, Karnataka Public School- Bidkalkatte and Government High School-Amasebailu.

Current challenges - 

Admissions to Government schools have increased in last 2 years, considering they provide free education and are present in rural areas. However infrastructure in some of the schools still remain a drawback to be able to provide quality education to rural children. Considering these schools are in remote areas of the state, availability of working computers, internet connectivity have been some of the challenges

Progress so far:

We have provided internet connections for three schools that are currently associated with us. We have collaborated with people and organizations who were willing to donate used computer monitors that are in good condition.
With the help of a corporate donor, we donated around 26 monitors, 7 laptops to these schools and few other neighboring villages/schools. However acquiring working CPUs is a challenge, so we are currently working with a vendor to provide us with refurbished, serviced mini-CPUs, which will then be donated to these schools in need.

Our mission:
The resources we require are computers – CPUs and accessories like keyboard, mouse, connector cables etc. The funds we require for this project is around INR 4L. Your donation will help us run the charitable programs we support.  It will provide support for less fortunate children to improve quality of their education

How can you trust us?
After the fundraiser has closed we will be updating the receipt of the purchases for the amount generated and share happy pictures with you.
