Karka Nirka is a charitable trust with the primary objective to provide underprivileged, rural students with a conducive environment for education. We are on a mission to bring a progressive social change in rural India with the focus on child development and educational infrastructure development
We believe that quality education comes with quality facilities which will provide a conducive environment for them to learn and nurture. We want to empower the children of rural India to realise their dreams which inturn will have a positive domino effect on the overall society.
We have so far impacted early learning experiences of over 200 children in Sivaganga District of Tamil Nadu.
About the Project:
N.C Primary School (Narayana Chettiar Primary School) is a small elementary school housing 81 students with 2 teaching and 2 non teaching staff. Located in Alavakottai, a remote village of Sivaganga district, it is the only elementary school for children from grades 1 to 5 and its surrounding villages.
The needs of the N.C primary school children outgrow the school's infrastructure capacity year after year. Though they have 2 classrooms, they do not have any other building to conduct the school events. As of today, all school functions like Independence day, Republic day, School Annual day, Pongal cultural events are being conducted in open grounds above unforgiving stones and under the scorching sun and rains.
Through this project we plan to provide the school children with a Main Hall to not only host all cultural events but also to conduct parent-teacher meetings, set up a small library, set up a computer lab and also serve as a building to host kindergarten kids.
The Main Hall construction for the school will follow the principles of universal design with the total building area of 1130 sq.ft. The total cost of this construction project is estimated at Rupees 19 Lakhs. Our plan is to raise 10 Lakh on Milaap crowdfunding platform, and the remaining via offline fundraising channels.
As a new nonprofit working with limited resources in a remote location, we need your support to raise this huge amount to build a new school infrastructure that will fulfill the long-term dream of these tiny tots. Please contribute.
