Education ensures a comprehensive, and inclusive, way forward for not just an individual, society or nation- but the whole of humanity. In the backdrop of imparting logical and creative abilities, it drafts, and redrafts, the social contract towards a just and humane order. India, that is Bharat, from the very beginning, has endeavoured to secure Justice, Liberty, Equality and Fraternity to her citizens. Evidently, quality education is the fundamental prerequisite for each of these constitutional goals. It is in this spirit of national duty we, at icareindia, conceptualised Ankuram with the theme of 'Padhta Bachpan, Badhta Bharat' in Lucknow about two years back. We have been working for the transformation of over 100 government elementary schools since then, with commendable results, and have even started our operations in Kanpur Nagar and Gorakhpur city. All this, without any financial support of the government!

The programme follows a perennial, rather than an event, template. The intent is to bring value based quality education to children, who would have otherwise been bereft of the same. This is achieved by bringing onboard the skills and enthusiasm of our young interns and volunteers, with an active participation of the local community, Panchayati Raj institutions and parents.With a planned approach, aided by the district administration and corporate as per their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) obligations, Ankuram is poised to develop model schools for more than 10,000 children studying in more than 100 government primary schools. On account of the noticeable gains made in its short period of operation, the programme has enthused parents, teachers and local communities alike. It is to be expected that their appreciation will translate into enhanced participation, which will only make the programme even more robust and sustainable.

Ankuram essentially aspires to achieve holistic development of children studying in government primary schools by adopting a multi-pronged approach. It focuses upon Infrastructure improvement,Quality education, Health and hygiene, Capacity building of teachers and mobilising youth for promoting awareness and educational consciousness in local communities. Youngsters, joining the programme as interns and volunteers, find creative ways of making teaching and learning interesting in the school premises. Such initiatives have been welcomed by teachers as well as students, because of the novelty and fun-quotient associated with them.

icareindia provides support to schools selected under the programme at three levels. 

Firstly, to create a conducive academic environment in schools, with active participation of youth, local community and children, continuous efforts are made to create clean and green schools. This is done by raising awareness through various activities.

Secondly, in collaboration with the district administration, the basic infrastructural needs of the school such as repair works, drinking water, toilets, etc. are met.Under this, the cooperation of Panchayati Raj institutions becomes indispensable. On account of our efforts, and the recommendations of Mr. Rajshekhar, the then District Magistrate of Lucknow, Sarpanchs took initiatives on their own. The provision of basic facilities in school premises has not only changed the attitude of children, but their parents as well.

Thirdly, performancebased incentives in the form of advanced facilities such as furniture, libraries, computers, sports equipment, etc. are provided based on theoverall performance of school. This ensures optimal utilisation of CSR funds, and a healthy sense of competition among schools.
