Project Description

A group of women in Jayanagar, Bangalore got together and decided to do something for the society.They started 'Sthree Samaja', a women's organization.

Apart from many projects like Vriddhasrama and working womens’ hostel, the other important project taken up was the starting of a village school ‘Vidya Vikasa Kendra’ in 1994. It is located in the village Gerupalya of Kumbalagodu Hobli. It caters to the educational needs of the  underprivileged children from this village and neighboring villages. Started with a strength of 17 and by 2009-10, has grown to 600. It has also been upgraded to a High School. The classes were originally conducted in a rented building. From 2004 the school has its own building. The school is totally unaided. Apart from the free tuition provided, the students are also provided with free text books, notebooks and uniforms. Once a year a free medical checkup by qualified doctors is arranged for the students of the school.

The entire project from idea generation, mobilizing funds from donors to commissioning of the facilities is managed by the Trust Stree Samaja. The students who hail from socially and educationally backward families are provided with free text Books, Uniforms and reading material donated by munificent donors.

Supplementing the academic focus, school children are encouraged in extracurricular activities. School children participate and demonstrate their talents during the celebration of national day events such as Republic Day, Independence day and children’s day.
