About School

Located near Bangalore in Anekal taluk, Karnataka, the school has been in existence since 1939. There are 540 children in grades 1-7 attending this school, from ten surrounding hamlets: Kempanaikanahalli (2 km), Sampigehalli (1km), Hakkipikki Colony (5km), Ragihalli (10km), Jangalpalya (2km), Shivanahalli (10km), Ramanaikana Doddi (10km), and Bhairappanahalli (2km). Most of the kids walk to school and there are no other affordable alternatives for education for them.

Before OSAAT Intervention

  • Classes were being held in an old building (circa 1937), with asbestos roofing and crumbling walls with deep cracks.
  • Every wall, without exception, had deep cracks with much of the mortar long gone.
  • The walls were also covered with mildew and heavily stained from the dirty water seeping through in the rainy season.
  • There is no furniture in the classrooms. Children sit on the bare floor.

    After OSAAT Intervention

    • A new school building has been built with 6 classrooms, providing a much needed relief to the kids and the school staff
    • There is no longer any wasted time and effort or worries about the standing water in the classrooms.
    • The new classrooms have reinforced concrete roof, asbestos no longer posing a health hazard.
