2020-21 has been the year of chaos and confusion due to the pandemic, which seems to repeat in the present year as well. This is specially so in the field of education. As there was lack of clarity on fee structure for colleges, children who needed support had to wait. However, fee sponsor was continued to 3 students who were under our support from last 3 years.

As per the new guidelines to collect 70% of actual fee this year, 3 children from Bethamangala, Kolar district, who were supported during 2019-20 for joining I PU will be assisted with Rs 15,000 each, a total of Rs 45,000, towards their fee for II PU this year. These kids have been performing very well in studies, and they are from very humble backgrounds. Hence, it is an appeal on their behalf to help them.

With pandemic changing the scenario of education system, on-line education is now given priority by the prestigious Inforsys Foundation in selected rural high schools and junior colleges. Under this programme, Infosys will provide hardware & software for online programme, if the infrastructure needed for the same are created in the institution. One such school selected for this year is the Govt Junior College, ID Halli, Madhugiri taluk.

Our Foundation has been working with this college and desks and book racks worth Rs 70,000 have been provided earlier. So, the college has approached our Foundation for support to create the required infrastructure facilities. Rural children from across 5 to 6 villages studying in this college are going to be benefitted with this programme. The approximate estimated cost of creating required infrastructure in the college is Rs 50,000.

In gist, our appeal with our generous donors is for Rs 45,000 towards, fee sponsor to three students and Rs 50,000 towards creating infrastructure for online learning at the Govt Junior College, ID Halli, a total of Rs 95,000.
