17 Updates for Asha, Seattle

Updates for Asha, Seattle

Funding increase Chapter approved funding increase to INR 312000. Successes Remarkable improvements in reading, spelling, and comprehension in govt. school children. Student participation and engagement and support from schools has increased every year. What didn’t go well Funds sent was approx. INR 6000 less than approved budget amount, due to USD-INR conversion error by the finance team. The shortage is nearly 50% of the budget increase approved. This has happened repeatedly, so the finance team’s exchange calculation process should probably be changed.

18 Site Visit – September 2012

Site Visit – September 2012

Half day site visit by Lakshmi Kumar to Amarjyothi Nagar and Kaveripura govt. schools Amarjyothi nagar Anganwadi children sang rhymes in English and Kannada. Class I and II students assembled words and read their text books. New English textbooks were difficult for them but Balavihar training has resulted in big improvements in reading. Kaveripura Class III and IV students also read their English books and answered a quiz by the teacher. Greater difficulty in reading than lower level students but the training is helping them cope with it. Overall Starting language training earlier seems to work better. Children are a lot more engaged in Balavihar’s English classes than their class teacher’s lessons.

FAQs

Some FAQs at Asha, Seattle meetings. How many rs are we spending per kid per year? Does the amount being spent on infrastructure items (building schools, repairing roofs, etc. ) look reasonable? Where exactly is the partner located? (especially for remote projects. Be ready to locate the project area on a map) What is the graduation rate of the school? What is the student to teacher ratio in class rooms? What is the girl to boy ratio in the school? What are the line items in the budget? Why is the partner asking for more funding for line item N? (You will be asked this if there are changes in the budget line items) Community opinion of the project. What went well, what didn’t go as expected, what can be done differently.
