New Kannad Madhyamik Vidyalay, Morabagi

  • STATUS: Partially funded. Construction started in Aug-2019
  • LOCATION: Morabagi Village, Jath Taluk, Sangli district, Maharashtra
  • NO. OF STUDENTS: 110
  • GRADES: 8 to 10

The school is located around 35 kms from Vijayapura in Jath District of Maharashtra State. Even though its is connected by a good road, it is a very remote place. The school caters to the needs of about 110 students mostly coming from poor families. Medium of instruction is Kannada. These students are taught by 5 teachers. The school is built and run by Sardar Yashavantarao Savant Shikshan Samstha (Morabagi) with the objective of providing education to poor children, especially girls who will not go to nearby villages for high school. It is a private aided Kannada medium high school.

The school caters to the children from Maniknal, Awaralvasti. Jalyal, Bhibargi, Karjagi & Girgaon villages. There are no other high schools nearby and all the GHP schools feed this high school. Maharashtra Government does not run any High School but gives aid to high schools set up by private parties. The syllabus & text books are supplied by the government and the teachers salaries are paid by the government. No other aid is given by the government. Even though it is a private institution, the education is practically free for the children. The management and the teachers donate towards the day to day expenses and look for donors for major school developments.

The school is looking for 2 class rooms, to finish the half completed toilet block and one kitchen for midday meals program. This project is being made possible by the generous contributions from VDA Info Solutions
The school is built in an area of 2 acres. It has a L shaped building with 7 rooms. Out of these 7 rooms one small room with sheet roof is used as a store room. Another 2 rooms are the original rooms with sheet rooms with no proper foundation. One of these is used as a laboratory and the other room is used as a class room for 8th standard. The remaining four rooms are the rooms built recently with the help of Gadinadu Abhivridhi Pradhikara of Karnataka Govt. These are RCC rooms and are in good condition. One of these rooms is partitioned with almirahs and the two portions are used as office and computer room. Another small room is used as staff room and the other two rooms are used as class rooms for classes 9th and 10th.

Near the entrance gate there are two sheet rooms which were built during the construction time as temporary sheds. These are now used as store room and kitchen. Behind the school building in one corner of the site toilet block is being built which is half done and work has stopped for want of funds.

We are proud to have started this journey. Since this project is partially funded, we are looking for donors. Want to lend a helping hand for this? Click here to donate.
