BUDS Academy: BUDS Academy is a Primary education program for less privileged children, from March 2016. BUDS ACADEMY is providing English medium primary education to less privileged children (Mostly dropouts).
Starting of the program: Village Mansadevi is one of the intervention villages of Setu Foundation for distinct social development issues. Most of the time the need of primary education facility for less privileged children has been identified by motivators of the Foundation, especially English medium primary education facility. Many times this issue has come across in official monthly meeting of the current program in those months.
After conducting many meetings with these families, the foundation decided to start an English medium primary education program with the help of community contribution. where these less privileged children are being provided an accessible environment for quality education.
With its minimum resources and one room (contributed by a women SHG member of foundation in the village) along with 7 kids foundation initiated a primary education program in the year 2016. Gradually, the number of students increased in the program and it converted into a primary school program. At present Program has been facilitating the primary education of approx 65 students from very poor/ less privileged section of the society.
Presently Setu Foundation facilitates these kids with rented classrooms, teaching facilities, school maid, free books, stationary facilities, Uniforms, other necessary things and facilities with the support of community contribution.
In addition foundation attempting to improve the financial status of concerning families through skill development and adult education as healthy and illiterate family support needed for the upbringing of the child.
Presently the BUDS classes are running in some small rented rooms with minimum facilities. Foundation has arranged space for students, books with primary stationery and teaching staff. However to sustain this effort a lot more needs to be done. Improvement in facilities will enhance the interest of the student in studies along with strengthening the education system of the BUDS program.
Along with this to continue the effort some necessary regular essential items are needed. In addition, some regular expenses are some another liabilities of BUDS as an honorarium of teachers and supporting staff, rent, water and electricity bills, funds to organize some regular meetings with parents and programs for/with children.
With all these regular expense one student cost reach to Rs. 1200-1500 including faculty, furniture, uniform, books and stationery, staff and others in every month.
