Impact of the OSAAT and ODiSI Programs

Over the past 18 years in operation, OSAAT has impacted students and teachers in over 94 schools in rural India.  More schools are expected to be impacted and we hope to reach 100 schools very soon.

Annually, more than 18,000 students benefit with  classrooms, proper workspaces, sanitation facilities, kitchen, drinking water and  library.

Better schools and infra has seen increased school enrollment and attendance numbers, especially for girls. State governments have seen the successes and have increased funding for further enhancing the infrastructure.

Then Karnataka Education Minister Shri Suresh Kumar recognizes and offers to OSAAT a partnership on all its programs (construction as well as ODiSI)


The OSAAT Digital School Infrastructure (ODiSI) Program was initiated in June 2021 to bridge the loss of school hours and learning tools during Covid pandemic lockdown. The program is innovative and has shown measurable impact.   In its 4th year after inception, ODiSI is currently operating in 61 Schools.   Over 9000 students and 800 teachers are benefitting in 5 rural Taluks of Kolar and Mysuru districts.

Preselected schools with 100 to 150 students were provided with laptops for teachers and IPads for students. With software from Khan Academy, Google Classroom and YouTube.

  • Program approach is to motivate teachers and students to use ODiSI, in a self-sustainable manner, without external intervention
  • ODiSI brings in a financial operational model where cost is directly related to outcomes instead of capital or operational investments

General availability of ODiSI for other regions:

  • To start a new cluster anywhere there should be minimum of 10 to 15 schools with around 1500 students being benefitted in the grades 6 to 10.
  • Blended cost of deploying ODiSI is ₹4000 per student per year (about $65).
  • Along with hardware (SmartTV, Laptops, Digital Tablets), software, data, SaaS, Cloud storage, support, maintenance, volunteering engagement, content library,  centralized dash board analytics, rewards and recognition are part of the program cost.
  • ODiSI is technology agnostic and has been implemented using both Google and Microsoft technologies in distinct and separate clusters.
