The schools will be ‘ideal’ in terms of:
□ Education, through interventions in the school that would help teachers upgrade the quality of education
□ Involvement of the schools and communities in planning and implementation of the physical infrastructure and its upkeep
□ Physical infrastructure, e.g., drinking water and sanitation arrangements, rainwater harvesting, greening, use of solar energy devices, etc.
□ To initiate a process towards upgrading the quality of teaching-learning environment
□ To develop a methodology for sustaining and replicating the Anandshala (AS) model in other schools/districts of Gujarat.
□ To involve village communities, line department of the state government, and other allied institutions and individuals to facilitate a better quality of education, internalize and sustain this within the schools on a long-term basis.
□ To improve the existing school infrastructure facility to demonstrate a model of ideal school.
□ To evaluate the project process and develop an AS strategic document for wider dissemination of the AS concept.
