EducationLow Cost High Quality Schools Program
In pursuance of IETS’ mission “to reach education to all sectors of society”, IETS along with local partner Krishi Gram Vikas Kendra (KGVK), the CSR arm of Usha Martin, have undertaken the management of a primary school in Sonahatu, rural Ranchi, under the name “Vidya Jyoti English Medium School”. The school was inaugurated on November 14th, 2008.
For this, IETS would be doing a complete quality up-gradation and enhancement including the following:
- Upgrading physical infrastructure (school furniture, blackboards, drinking water, toilets)
- Setting up IT infrastructure of 10 computers in a computer lab
- Teacher training and teacher development
- Integrated teaching-learning solutions for improving student performance and achievement levels
This is the first of a branded chain of schools to be set up under IETS’ name with Usha Martin as partner. Vocational education such as computer training and English communication skills will also be imparted to local youth and adolescents using the infrastructure of the school after school hours
