How a ‘Jhopri’ school (school in a hut) became a temple of learning.

Less than a kilometre away from the busy KR Market in Bangalore is a government school, which is an epitome of effective community participation.
Not many years ago, this school was known as the ‘Jhopri School’, i.e school in a hut.  It was a dilapidated structure with walls adjacent to a cemetery. Today, the school boasts of a three storey building, providing education to over 700 children from the community. This is purely a consequence of community participation and persistent advocacy to the elected representatives.

Towards its vision to impart quality education to its students, the school opened its arms to us – Mantra4Change. To read more, how this school got transformed into a temple of learning, please click here.
