Project JnanaShala is an education based initiative targeted at young kids living in rural villages of Karnataka. The Project has covered 5 villages in the Ramanagara district of Karnataka, since the launch on 21st November 2020, that has helped rural kids studying in Classes 5th to 10th (a) attend regular online classes broadcasted through DD Chandana channel at the fully equipped Community Centres setup by the NGO and b) participate in weekly sessions on “Values and Characters” delivered through Storytelling.
None of the 5 villages has a proper or decent Library for children studying in these rural schools and hence they suffer from lack of exposure and poor access to the outside world. With a motive to inculcate reading and help rural kids develop personality, the NGO plans to equip the villages with Digital libraries. They will be managed by a “Grama Gelathi” (Lady Facilitator) appointed by the NGO in all the 5 villages.
The Libraries will follow an hybrid model where Books available as hard copies will be supplemented by “Kiosks” offering digital content. Each digital library is expected to benefit not less than 500 rural students in the 5 Villages. Though the Libraries are targeted at rural kids aged 8-14 years, even Adults can enjoy the benefit.
The NGO seeks generous donation from you, to support the Digital Library initiative. The amount you donate shall be spent on a) physical infrastructure for the Library, b) purchase of equipment to set up Online Kiosks for digital content, c) Books to be purchased and d) running operational cost.
