U.B.M.C Higher Primary School, Bajegoli, Karkala Taluk, Karnataka, India
The school has been in existence since the 1940s and serves poor kids from surrounding villages. The children are from families are agricultural workers and labourers, barely able to survive on meagre wages. The school is in dire need of a few strong and safe classrooms, the old building having seen its days. The drinking water facility and toilets are totally destroyed and unhygienic.
The Domino EffectThis school is the first ever project done by OSAAT. It actually started as a modest effort by a few Silicon Valley engineers, to raise funds and donate to the school. However, the ground reality – red tape, corruption, vested interests interfering – made them think further. Their vision resulted in the birth of OSAAT as a non-profit organization in 2003. After OSAAT adopted the school, the local community in Bajegoli got excited, and brought in building materials, furniture and other equipment. Today, the school is standing tall, proud, and keeping its promise to the poor kids it is serving!
