Activities within the grant and expected impact:

The  impact study of the Phase 1 project suggests that overall, the project has created an enabled environment for:

Expanding the scope of the LIP to include core subjects like mathematics, science and English
Including Urdu and Telugu medium schools on a priority basis
Recruiting, retaining and investing in capacity building of programme staff
Undertaking further research studies to provide inputs for framing region-specific and more effective strategies
Considering an integrated approach towards livelihood, education and health interventions.

In the second phase, the programme proposes to build the capacity of 32 Anganwadi centres across seven clusters in Yadgir block for effective implementation of the pre-school programme. The coverage of schools under different components of KSU will also be expanded from 65 in the preparatory phase to 149 schools in seven education clusters spread across 22 gram panchayats in Yadgir block. The Learning Improvement Programme will be scaled up to cover 3,750 children in 50 centres (25 children per centre X 50 centres per year X 3 years). Efforts will be made for creating awareness among the community members on the issues related to child education, especially girl child education, in 40 villages from seven clusters in Yadgir block. Focus will be on ensuring 100-per-cent functional toilets in 20 schools across seven clusters, whilst also ensuring medical check ups for all students. ICT interventions in 35 higher primary and high schools will cover 110 teachers across Yadgir block. Finally, research study and survey based reports such as:

Human Development Report of Yadgir district
Cohort Study of Dropouts
Study on migration and its impact on children’s education are also proposed.

Overall impact expected would be in terms of improvement in learning levels of 70 per cent children in Kannada, English and mathematics, captured in terms of these children achieving grade-specific competencies as compared with the baseline; active participation of SDMC members and parents in school functioning processes; 1,550 children receiving ECCE for all-round development and learning through play-way methods; increase in computer literacy and awareness among teachers, students, teacher educators; and 80 per cent of the children using toilets in 20 schools, through effective implementation of the school health and hygiene programme.
