Targetting the problems of hunger, disease and oppression that sadden their lives...
Inspiring in each other trust, confidence and support for one another..."

  Summary

 

 

AID Blacksburg and AID Boise chapters have reviewed and approved the proposal submitted by Identity foundation for running a remedial reading class program for 1st to 4th grade children in three government-run municipal corporation schools in Pune, Maharashtra. Santosh K. Gupta, from AID Blacksburg has interviewed Identity Foundation and also conducted a site visit in February 2007. During his site visit he visited one of the schools where Identity Foundation is presently running a pilot project. The pilot project was well conducted and Santosh reported that this project is effective and also well appreciated by both students and teachers.

The estimated budget for implementing the program in three schools for one year for four different grades/classes is $6,152 USD. Since it will take 4 years for a student in the 1st grade to reach 4th grade, Identity Foundation therefore plans to assess the impact of the program throughout, beginning with the 1st grade for the entire period of 4 years.

AID Blacksburg and AID Boise are funding this project together. The budget would be split evenly amongst both sponsoring chapters every year.

To learn more about the project, please read the project proposal and annual report of Identity Foundation, Pune.
