Save a school for our future generation

This is the current situation of the Rasoolpura School

Zilla Parishad High School is the biggest government school in Rasoolpura, Hydrabad. Unfortunately, the existing infrastructure at the school is woefully inadequate and does not even cater to the existing number of students (at least 700), leave aside the new enrolments.

The schools original land space was 6,000 sq yards, but in recent years it was encroached illegally by land grabbers and it reduced to 2,000 sq yards. Now it has been changed into a garbage dump and is also used as public toilet and anti-social activities. So to stop these, the Bhumi (an NGO which formed my a group of youth’s) has planed to construct compound wall and bathroom, to secure the land from encroachment. Like how we (India) got independence in midnight, this construction will also start on Aug 14th midnight and end on the next day (Aug 15th) morning 8am. This project will cost them around 5 laksh and they managed to raise a Lakh. If you are interested to do some help for your society pls u are wecome. It doesn’t matter how much, but if you are willing to help little? Let they know your response as soon as possible as because there are less days. If u need further details and information about money transfer, mail my Friend Shuuro (who is involved in this group) : shuuro@gmail.com or contact 919866609953.

The biggest benefit we get form our help is to motivating over 20,000 child labors to go school. You can get more details of the project here. Our little helps are the steps for our India's development.

Thanks for blogging about this jeevan. More than this, I'm really happy that you don't want to stop here but personally want to donate for the school. I've sent details in a email informing you about how & where you can send us your check. I'll keep you posted with images of development works in the school. Today we are going to lay foundation and we will start work on aug 14th midnight.

what those politicians are upto ? dont they have funds to offer to build a school ?

Shuuro said...

Hi Anonymous,

Politicians in the government decided to stop funding for the school, teachers were not paid for past 6 months and they want to leave their job. We can't let this happen or can't let school to slip into oblivion. We believe we can make a difference and working towards it instead of depending or blaming others. If we can't gather enough funds for this project, then some of us will pay from our own pockets for this project, since this is just a small step in our bigger goal for rasoolpura slum, we can't sustain financially for long without the support of the others. As you may know we have adopted this slum and want to make them self reliant by providing livelihood. We are also working with other international NGOs like ICRISAT, Engineers without borders and other student & youth groups to give better life for the people in the slum, in terms of sanitation, water facility and other things.

Apathy is that the politicians spent 3 cores in local body election for small population of about 2 lakhs but doesn't have anything for children or for the school.

Hey! You have a nice site here..really good stuff. Here’s something I want to share with you, especially for travel lovers… I came across this cool airfare consolidator, called cFares. This is sooooo awesome because it ACTUALLY gives you the best deals on airfares. They have something called a Platinum membership which gives you even lower fares than what you get.. I completely recommend this site, especially the platinum membership.
Here’s the link for that…

Tell all ur friends and colleagues in the US. Awesome prices if ur flying anywhere in the world..and it’s really useful, if ur flying from the US to China, South East Asia and Europe…hope this helps!! The Platinum membership is paid and trust me it’s worth every bit!!

Cheers!!
