Appeal Letter for School Education

Friends,

It is proven beyond doubt that good education is the only route to a better future. Education driven by SCALE is more about knowledge, good culture, creativity, positive attitude and well-placed confidence. We hope that in times to come, all like-minded organizations and individuals work cohesively to build a knowledge-driven society.

SCALE believes in equipping teachers with the essential and practical knowledge in mathematics, including rudimentary statistics and science, both physical and biological, to handle day-to-day matters in the rural environment. We feel this will motivate drop-outs to go back to school.

SCALE has professors from Saha Institute and Bose Institute on its advisory board who have done their research from Cornell University, USA. Our board also has professors and scholars from Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), Delhi University and Computer Shiksha Centre from Gurgaon. Through this extremely credible faculty, we are trying to make a difference to the quality of teaching in Science, Mathematics and English, besides Computer Education.

Here are some of the achievements of our ‘Project Education’

  • 10,000 needy school children have benefitted through SCALE's IT and Science laboratories
  • Smart learning in computers has been introduced in five needy schools
  • E-learning in Maths, Science and English is being introduced in these five schools
  • We have covered 19 schools with educational aids
  • We have donated 8000 new books and eight computers to 40 border schools in Pithoragarh District

However, these efforts are not enough, and we want to take Project Education to more needy schools in rural India. For this, we need your assistance. Your participation in our mission will play a key role in its success. SCALE’s educational initiative needs funds to equip additional 75 needy schools with Computer and Science laboratories, visual aids for education, smart learning and E-learning. This include schools on the borders of India-China and India-Nepal.

Over the last 15-odd years, SCALE has been working only through donations made by some corporates and credible individuals. We request more individuals to join us in our noble cause. Your collaboration with SCALE will bring cheer and hope to more lives.
