Shiksha Sopan

What do we aim for

The achievements of the organization in 14 years have been spectacular. On one hand, dozens of IITK students have been brought face to face to the reality of Indian villages for the first time, and on the other hand, the villagers are given the message that the so called elite society is concerned about them. We have been able to create a reasonable core group of IIT Kanpur faculty members who are guiding us from time to time and also participating in the activities. Sopan Vidyalaya and the evening centers have become focal points for so many diverse activities which are creating self confidence, skills and social awareness among the so called neglected section of the society.

In effect we have developed an infrastructure in terms of manpower and programmes which is our strength. Now we have to utilize this infrastructure to launch the second stage of work. We have set the following targets before us for the next few years.

  • align="left">Sopan Vidyalaya is to be made the most prestigious school in the locality of Barasirohi and around.

  • Sports and yoga have to be given priority at all evening centers and the school.

  • >Vocational skill development programmes will be started.

  • Formal training of dances, drama and music have to be started.

  • The shiksha sopan library will be enriched.

  • CDs and films related to our history, culture and education will be screened from time to time.

  • Science experimental facilities would be set up where students even of primary classes can experiment with scientific ideas conceived by them. A team of students will be prepared who can give science shows at various schools.

  • Lectures by eminent people in different fields will be arranged which can inspire IITK students as well as Shiksha sopan workers to work for the nation.

  • >Presently, sopan vidyalaya needs to have its own land and construction. We look forward for donors who can participate in this noble attempt of social upliftment by IIT Kanpur community.
