Improving Infrastructure at Remote Schools - Building better learning spaces

An interesting statistic : - Less than 31% of the schools in Ladakh are furnished or have classroom furniture.

Quite a few of them even lack the necessary blackboard. 

A lot of rural schools in Ladakh have extremely limited infrastructure, and what exists, leaves a lot to be desired. From broken, unusable classrooms, to non-functional toilets, classrooms without furniture or even carpets, barren playgrounds and limited hostel spaces, there is a dire need to improve schools in remote Ladakh today. Not only does the lack of basic infrastructure contribute to an undesirable learning environment, but it also adds to the already existing discontent of the parent, who frequently compares the Govt. School to far away private schools and finds them lacking.

Taking data from our MapMySchool layer, this program focuses on implementing key infrastructure improvement at projects at very remote schools across Ladakh. The Foundation has setup playgrounds, classroom furniture, built toilets, furnished dormitories and created happy learning spaces for children. Besides the obvious impact of improving infrastrucure at our Infrastructure@17000ft program also works on the perception of the parent, to convince him that his village and school is being looked after and to hence stay invested in it.
