element14 has reaffirmed its commitment to making a positive impact in local communities by spearheading an initiative to enhance school facilities in rural Karnataka, India.
Partnering with 13 government schools in Chitradurga, Vijaypura and Davangere, element14 has addressed infrastructure challenges to provide better educational environment for over 4000 students. The following infrastructure enhancements and amenities have been provided to facilitate a conducive learning environment:
Smart Classrooms: element14 enabled the setup of state-of-the-art smart classrooms, equipped with all the necessary infrastructure to conduct interactive and technology-driven learning sessions.
Washrooms and Toilets: Recognizing the need for improved sanitation facilities, element14 funded the construction of separate washrooms and toilets for boys and girls in schools where these amenities were lacking.
Painting and Repair Work: The element14 team undertook extensive painting and repair work in three schools, rejuvenating the learning spaces and creating a vibrant atmosphere for students.
Safe Drinking Water: To ensure access to clean and safe drinking water, element14 installed advanced Reverse Osmosis (RO) plants within the schools.
Basic Amenities: Additionally, element14 supplied desks, educational aids, learning models and other essential amenities to enhance the overall learning experience for students.
The successful execution of this initiative was made possible through the invaluable support of Block Education officers, who recognized the significance of such initiatives in nurturing the future generations of Karnataka. The Department of Education commended element14 for its dedicated efforts in improving school infrastructure.
Mr. Srikanth KS, Headmaster at Challakere School, Chitradurga, Karnataka and Best Teacher, State Awardee stated, “With the provision of safe and separate washrooms, improved infrastructure, and essential amenities, we have witnessed a positive shift in parents’ attitudes, as they feel more encouraged to send their children to school, knowing that their needs are being met and their education is valued. element14’s commitment to creating a conducive learning environment has not only impacted our students but has also strengthened the bond between our school and the community we serve.”
“By enhancing school facilities and creating an engaging atmosphere, we are dedicated to empower students and nurture their innate curiosity and thirst for knowledge. Our commitment goes beyond providing basic infrastructure; we aim to create schools that children willingly come to, where education becomes a joyful and transformative experience,” said Vinesh Pulse, Country Head, Element14
The success of this project can be attributed to the unwavering commitment and dedication of the employees and management of element14’s India team. Recognizing the pivotal role that quality education plays in shaping the future, element14 prioritizes initiatives that bridge the educational gap in rural areas, empowering students and paving the way for their success.
