Government Senior Secondary School, Lorta, Jodhpur (Rajasthan)

The Government Senior Secondary School, Lorta is situated in a remote village of Balesar in Rajasthan. When Quality Support Program was introduced to the school, student enrolment was at 94 with seven teachers. School infrastructure and facilities were inadequate and lacked regular maintenance. The records of the students showed low student performance. While the parents and the community were compassionate, their engagement with the school was limited. Bharti Foundation began by facilitating a self-assessment exercise that was conducted by the teachers, where they themselves identified the persisting issues of the school. The concerns highlighted were as follows:

  • Low visibility with dipping enrolment and reputation of the school
  • Lack of school infrastructure and facilities
  • Underutilization of allocated funds for the school
  • Low interest, self-confidence and poor academic performance of students
  • Inadequate opportunities for skill and holistic development of students

Reflecting on the identified issues, Bharti Foundation prepared a strategy of intervention focusing on the four important pillars, as follows:

  • Student empowerment
  • Teacher empowerment
  • Parent & community engagement
  • Infrastructure management
