Jigani School Presentation
Visit: July 23 2005
Presented By: Subramanian
Services elementary & secondary school needs of Jigani
and several surrounding villages
Several very dedicated teachers and staff
Although they receive some limited government support,
they have financial difficulties of two kinds
Lack funds for facilities and infrastructure
Lack funds for teacher’s salaries
Can we help them? They have some requests. In addition, I
have some ideas, and would like to initiate a discussion on
History of the School
1961: School began in temple/fields, etc.
1973: Building constructed by the land army
: Ishwar Murthy took over as Headmaster
1994: High school begins
The School, in Pictures
The School, in Pictures
Elementary, middle and high school
Only school with 8-12 grades in the area (people come
here from government school)
Total of 1300 students (470 in elementary school, 745
in high school, 162 in PUC)
~30 rooms, situated in a 2 acre plot
Students pay Rs. 500 p.a. (and Rs. 500 towards school
Sounds good, so far…
What seems to be the problem?
Not able to accept all students (from surrounding
villages) due to lack of space
Teachers go on regular quarterly rounds to get funds for
expansion & maintenance
Monthly expenses – cash flow
Teacher’s salaries are often difficult to come up with
Often need the support of external donors to cover this
Proposed Solution: New Classrooms
Cost Estimate for New Classrooms
Proposing the construction of 4 new classrooms
Use existing land, 0.25 acres
1 classroom costs Rs. 2,90,000 ($6682)
Total estimated expenses are Rs. 11,60,000 ($26,728)
Problem with Teacher’s Salaries
Salaries are quite low
M.A., B.Ed. teacher gets Rs. 1500 p.m.
Principal gets Rs. 3300 p.m., after 9 yrs experience
Govt. supports 8 teachers (@Rs. 6000 p.m.)
Paying the remaining teachers is often challenging
Often need to ask local donors for funds
Also, lack of funds makes it difficult to recruit new
What could we do to help teachers?
SAC type program for teachers salaries?
One time fund to help teachers for a fixed period of
Provide seed money for a teachers “fund” – e.g.,
matching funds provide them incentive when they go
fund raising locally
Some high-level points (some motivation to
Jigani village has a poor “economy”
They are located near an industrial estate but there are
several socio-economic problems
Uneducated, often unemployed, population
Leads to a lot of friction between businesses and villagers
Businesses wary of helping the villagers due to a few bad
Education can help solve some of these problems by
providing a capable next generation
