Building and Reconstructing Government Schools in Bangalore

Building and Reconstructing Government Schools in Bangalore

Project Summary

In May 2019, Wipro joined hands with the Government of Karnataka to improve the infrastructure and learning environment at VV Puram (K-12) and MR Nagar (Grade 1-7) schools in the Bengaluru Urban South District. The objective is to support and enable government schools deliver good quality education.

For over a year, Wipro has been closely involved in the construction and infrastructure development of these two government schools. We are currently in the process of setting up computer labs and libraries for them. The project is expected to get completed by April 2021.

About the Project

The project is a joint initiative by Azim Premji Foundation and Wipro to strengthen the government schools in Bangalore with the focus on the improvement of teaching and learning by APF along with the restoration of critical school infrastructure by us e.g. toilets, classrooms, laboratories, etc.
We completed the delivery of Teaching-Learning Material (TLM) and furniture in FY19-20 and started work on infrastructure restoration in Q4 2019-20. Once classroom teaching resumes, Azim Premji Foundation (APF) will focus on improving the learning experiences of the students by providing onsite support to teachers.
Our collaboration with the VV Puram and MR Nagar government schools has sparked interest among local communities, with many new enrolments reported from both schools.
