The Needs

The Needs

 

Of the 69 hamlets currently under our adoption, about 20 villages lack even a pre-school.  Pre-school Centres need to be constructed and a teacher each to be appointed.

The 100 and odd teachers serving in the schools (Primary, Middle, High and Higher Secondary) of the service area need to be given computer literacy.

The teaching-learning process needs to be strengthened by envisaging strategies that augment the teaching of Science, Mathematics and English in these rural schools.

Strengthening School Infrastructure / Laboratories in 15 Primary, Upper Primary and Senior Schools.

Integrated community herbal farms need be established in seven centres.  The 69 villages could be geographically grouped into seven clusters, with one centre for each cluster.

 

Basic education and income generation skills have been found to empower the women folk towards a reasonable degree of self reliance.  The pressing needs of the programme revolve around this target.  The remarkable aspect of this form of "paying-back to the community" is that the students not only render their service but also financially meet over 80% of the annual budgetary needs of the department.  We are striving hard to accomplish an appropriate recognition of the service of the students and the Extension Faculty by the UGC and/or the Union Ministry of HRD.  The efforts continue in this direction while the students of St. Joseph's carry forward the service silently.  For SHEPHERD is not just about the students - it is the combined label given to the three communities - a 48000 - strong rural community of awakened people, a 5000-strong community of committed students and a 350-strong community of dedicated Jesuits and Professors.
