Surahonne rural school has good student strength and adequate number of teachers. The School caters to children from very poor backgrounds, either small agriculturists or agriculture laborers. The HM, Teachers, and SDMC are very committed and are eager to improve the school.

The school offers Kannada medium in all classes; classes 6th and 7th have English medium as well (1 section Kannada and 1 section for English).


Currently, they have 3 buildings with 15 classrooms. 10 classrooms with Mangalore tiled roof are badly damaged. Toilets are also in very poor condition. Government constructed 2 new classrooms recently. The total requirement by the school is for 12 classrooms.

Initially the school requested for 10 classrooms and toilet blocks; later some classrooms were repaired and also Government built 2 classrooms OSAAT proposes to build 4 classrooms and separate toilet block for boys and girls.

To optimize available space, OSAAT will construct classrooms in two floors – 2+2 structure; each classroom
for 40 students. Each toilet block will have 2 toilets, 5 urinals and 2 wash facility.

This project is being made possible by the generous contributions from Mr. M P Kumar of Global Edge Technologies.
OSAAT has started construction as of Nov-2019 and expect to complete construction in 8 months.
