Student Covid-19 Relief Funding Initiative

FLOS Student Relief Funding Initiative
An initiative to provide 150 ration kits to government school students and their families.

FLOS is student-run organisation that has been working with GHPS Yelahanka NES, a government school in Bangalore, since 2017. Our primary mission is to equip and enable the students to explore science beyond their textbooks. However, due to Covid-19 and the resultant lockdown, we have shifted our focus towards addressing their immediate need, by providing essential supplies to the students and their families.

The problem:
  • The govt. lockdown has left 150 students and their families without access to essential supplies. Majority of the student's parents are daily wage earners, living hand to mouth. Without any source of income, it is impossible for them to provide for their family

Here is how we plan to help:
Objective:
  • To provide ration kits to ~150 student families who live near the govt. school
Distribution:
  • The ration kits will be distributed from the government school to one family member who comes to receive it
  • The family members will be called in small batches at different time intervals during the day to ensure there is no crowding 
  • Safety is our number one priority throughout the process. All personnel will be equipped with masks and gloves when distributing the ration kits
Supply & delivery:
  • We have identified a credible wholesaler who will supply the packaged ration kits, and deliver it directly to the school
  • Team members for this FLOS initiative will be present in the school to ensure that the ration kits will be distributed in an accountable manner

Ration Kit Items:

Dear Supporters,

Thank you all for your encouragement and support.

Here is an update on our work.
- On 22nd April, 2020, we completed the distribution of 150 ration kits to the families of the students
- By checking the student ID brought by the parent as well as their own government ID, we ensured that the kits were reaching the correct people
- The families receiving the kits were BPL (Below Poverty Line) families and were in need of essential supplies
- Along with the ration kits, we distributed 600 masks to the families in need
- Safety protocols such as social distancing and sanitizing were followed throughout the process

With the help of Mr Ramanjaneya (Principal at GHPS Yelahanka NES) we were able to complete the distribution of these ration kits.

We would also like to thank Mr Kamalakar sir (BEO of Bangalore North), Mr Jayaranga sir (Deputy Director of Public Instruction) and Mr S R Vishwanath (MLA and Political Secretary to the Chief Minister) for being present on-site during the distribution of kits.

Last but not least, the FLOS team would like to give a huge thanks to all those who supported this initiative. Whether it was by donating or by spreading awareness, this would not have been possible without your help.

Thank you
