• School Building Construction

    In some Govt schools, we have seen multiple classes happen within the same room simultaneously. There simply are not enough classrooms for all the classes being taught. Bright & airy classrooms help the children to stay focused, concentrate & grasp the knowledge being provided to them.

    Hyderabad Round Table 8 which runs Project 511 has been building schools and additional class rooms since 1980. After Project 511 was started, this school building activity also came under the supervision of Project 511. So far 20 schools and additional classrooms have been constructed. This program is executed in partnership with Sarva Siksha Abhiyan ( SSA) on an 80/20 basis.

  • Operation Seating

    Lack of benches in classrooms forces children to sit in uncomfortable and unhygienic conditions. Sitting on the floor for several hours at a stretch also leads to neck aches, short attention span and bad posture. Project 511 started Operation Seating so that the children can sit in comfort and focus on the lessons without distractions from the physical discomfort. Under this program, Project 511 has provided more than 29,196 dual desks to 651 schools so far.

  • Operation Sanitation

    The 13th Annual Status of Education Report (ASER) found that 23 per cent of rural schools have unusable toilets and 11.5 per cent have no separate toilets for girls.

    A lack of access to proper sanitation facilities poses a huge barrier to education as children frequently miss school due to hygiene-related diseases. Toilets and proper washing stations can help stop the spread of many diseases and parasites such as diarrhea.

    This is why we believe that a hygienic lavatory is as important for a school as an equipped classroom. The truth, however, is very different in Government schools. In most schools, students and teachers go without any toilet facility for more than 6 hours. Under Operation Sanitation we construct separate toilet facilities for boys and girls and until now have constructed or repaired 595+ toilets in government schools.

    This is done in collaboration with Samagra Shiksha, which contributes 80% of the cost. In cases where Samagra Shiksha funds are unavailable, Project 511 funds the activity fully through its other donors.

  • Operation Blackboard

    Education for every child begins on a blackboard which is the most common and the most important of all the visual aids. Yet, many schools lack proper black boards because the immovable boards in the classroom need to be painted every year to maintain legibility.

    We, at Project 511, refurbish existing blackboards by repairing and painting them and furnish new ones in classrooms that don't have any. Through this program 830 schools have been provided with blackboards.

  • Teaching & Learning Materials

    Students learn better when the process is made fun. Our Teaching & Learning Materials program (TLM) was initiated with the idea of taking knowledge beyond books and hence, making learning engaging and interesting. The insightfully created kit comprises a science kit, models of human body parts, a mathematics kit, social science charts and a globe. The contents of the kit also vary based on the specific requirements shared by primary schools.

    The main objective of this program is to supplement the teaching efforts of the teachers in primary classes. The program has helped in developing the reasoning abilities of the children and improved their mathematical skills. This program was launched in 2011 and to date we have provided these kits to more than 717 schools.

  • Operation Science Lab

    Science cannot be learnt through books alone. The science lab program launched in 2012, is an outcome of the learnings we had from running the Mobile Science Labs from 2008 to 2012. We deliver a science kit equipped to conduct over 120 science experiments to schools.

    This program is mainly to expose students of class 6 to 10 to practical demonstration of theoretical knowledge. The children are encouraged to conduct experiments to gain hands-on experience to understand the concepts better. To date we have provided Science Kits in 307 Schools benefiting more than 61,000 children.

  • Mobile Science Lab

    Project 511 tried a novel method of reaching out to school that did not have science labs. The Mobile Science Lab program was launched in May 2008. Under this program science practicals were demonstrated to children studying in Class VI to X in Government schools by qualified teachers. Each mobile science lab covered 10 Government schools by visiting one School per day. In each teaching Session, teachers would explain the theory behind each experiment using a Laptop and Projector provided by us, followed by a practical demonstration of the experiment. Students were encouraged to have a hands-on experience which helped them understand and remember concepts better. This program was modified into Operation Science Labs in 2012 where Project 511 started handing out science lab kits to schools.

  • English Learning Program

    The State government proposed to introduce English as a medium in all government schools from Class 1 to Class X. Project 511 works with government schools to enable English language proficiency for teachers and students. We currently conduct the English Language program in 25 Primary and High schools in Hyderabad, Ranga Reddy and Medchal - Malkajgiri Districts. This 2-year English Proficiency program is for children from Non-English backgrounds and is designed to deliver even where the teachers proficiency may not be good. This program uses a process that replicates methodology of the mother tongue language acquisition. Teaching is through Action, Music, Reading & Storytelling. Our support includes training, material kit, implementation and monitoring the program.

  • Operation Matriculation

    Operation Matriculation was aimed at improving the Pass Percentage of children studying in Class X in Government High Schools. Under this program, Study material in the form of test papers was provided to each student of Class X. These test papers helped many students in scoring the minimum pass marks in the X standard board examinations paving the way to encourage them to study further or qualify to get basic jobs in retail etc where X pass was a criteria. This program was a boon to children who were underperformers in school examinations.

  • Digital Learning

    India is among the top two countries globally in many dimensions of digital adoption. However, there lies a huge gap between the privileged and the poor when it comes to accessibility to helpful digital resources. At Project 511, we have launched a Digital Learning Program in government schools across the city in February, 2021. Unlike traditional classroom education, e-learning can be introduced and renewed quickly, and can be consumed at the learner's own pace and convenience which offers a great deal of flexibility, and less worry about schedules.

    With the belief and purpose that every child deserves an equal opportunity to learn, we strive to create an education friendly environment so that the students can benefit from the basic necessities often taken for granted by the rest of the world. The first digital classroom was launched in the Government Girls' High School, Mahboobia Gunfoundry, Hyderabad and the model has now expanded to 2 more schools in the city; Nehru Memorial High School Malakpet and City Model High School Chaderghat. We are gearing up to penetrate into 5 more schools this academic year.

    The online classes are powered by Bolt by Renlight and through them, we aim to give students early exposure to digital tools and provide them with skills that directly improve their employability across 60 career options. Some of the learning modules have been created in collaboration with organizations across different industries in order to create job opportunities for the students. Different skills like Coding, Problem Solving, Critical Thinking, Financial Management etc. will be developed in students through the program.

    When a child forms a connection and relates what is being taught in traditional classrooms with what he views online through E-learning modules, it improves his understanding of the subject at hand and allows them to grasp concepts much more quickly. Forming this co-relation makes E-learning a preferred and rewarding experience for the student.

    Through the Digital Learning tools, we connect students to mentors across varied industries in order to provide a real world-view of the corporate world. We aim to introduce the Digital Learning Program to 1,00,000 students by 2023 and impact all of Hyderabad's schools by 2025. Through consistent interaction with digital tools and E-Learning modules, children can grow into confident young adults who are ready to move into India's digital future.
