    6)Purpose of the project : Jangareddygudem mandal is one of the west godavary district ,it is population is 57257,this area falls under 10revenue villages. the total area of the mandal is 196sq.kms,there are 22 villages the literacy rate of this area is 48.21% out of the total males only44.63% of males are employed seasonal employment prevails.1.3% of them are marginal workers,53.66% of the total population are unemployed who came under non-productive category, The sustenance is derived from Agriculture 88.5% of the total area is cultivated .Out of which only 43.45% is irrigated. Community health care provided by the government could cover only 50% of the mandal population .Postal &Telegraph facilities could serve only 35% communication network is not in adequate level. Only 65% can enjoy this facility only 35% of the area is approached by the road.
    The programmes are typically conducted within the space of our foundation where we have set up learning centres. The foundation is located in vicinity of construction sites. The children come from extremely low income backgrounds and do not have any access to any schooling facility .
    Our staff is mobilized and teacher training is facilitated and the regular programmes is monitored All the beginning of every academic year, we undertake a survey of local construction sites and some basic questions are asked,
    1)Does the child have pre-school experience?
    2)Does the child go to school?
    3)Does the child know reading, writing and arithmetic?
    4)Do the children have access to books and study material?
    The parents of these children at each construction site are counselled to send their to our study centre ,The aim is to increase the enrolment and learning levels of these children. WE AIM TO BUILD SCHOOL ,emotional, motor ,cognitive skills of the pre-schoolers also help tackle the problems of retention and achievement at a nascent change stage since most of the parents are illiterate and totally unable to help children in early childhood education. If the children attend pre-school ,then there is a significantly higher chance that they will continue in to primary schools and will have a better set of school readiness skills.
    Our flagship programme helps to improve reading, writing and basic arithmetic skills of children in the age group of 3 to 14 years .By the end of our intervention we aim to target our children depending on each level to know basic alphabets, numbers, colours shapes textures ,read simple words ,do simple sums read simple texts and solve arithmetic problems. Our subjects include-language Development (English &Hindi) Mathematics ,Environmental sciences, life skills, Montessori practical’s in sensorial-practical life-phonetics ,language building ,Numeric, Botany Zoology& Geography ,Art& craft ,Leisure &Play-Way activities.
    Our target for this year (2012-2013)is to further support and positively impact the lives of 200 children ,Our education programmes are divided in to 4 levels –Pre Nursery, Nursery, KG, & functional literacy
    To Further Elaborate on the matter above, the funds are used for (but not limited to)
    1)Educational aids (Montessori and regular teaching aids)
    2)Text books, Picture books ,Note books ,drawing books
    3)Stationary materials and craft kits
    4)CDs ,display boards ,black boards and visual teaching aids
    5)Other relevant educational material
    6)Curricular development.

    7)Location of the project :List of the villages enclosed (map identifying the villages)
    General description of the area where the project will be located
    a)Number of habitations :30
    b)Physical features of the project area;
    Andhra Pradesh is one of the 26 states in India .it is constituted of 3 regons namely coastal Andhra T,elangana and Rayalaseema .Among these 3regions the most backward one is West godavary, covering the 4 districts of Vijayanagaram,Visakhapatnam& Eastgodavary region is a dry area,80% of the people are depending on agriculture under rainfed crops. The major crops in these area are groundnut, turmeric, paddy ,vegetables etc. Due to frequent drought small and marginal farmers are facing lot of humiliation and economic stringencies in their daily lives .People are hardly employed 4or5 months in a year .Rest of the period. Their livelihood depends upon the mercy of hardly from whom people avail loan or grain and work of cheaper wage during busy season .Hence their economic condition remains poor since generation.
    8)Present situation: For W.G.Dt district the year 1996 is its first experience with north east mansoon has proved to be harrowing. The trial of destruction and misery the four day spell of incessant rains triggered by a depression in the bay of Bengal had a few parallels ,conjuring up of the 1977 disaster caused by huge tidal waves .the tragedy took place on 18th oct,96 at 11pm. For these days from 17th to 19th district has received rain of 88mm as against the nominal rainfall of 122mm for the entire month. Apart from there was huge inflow of water around 80000 cusec in to Tammileru reservoir and more than 1.5lakhs cusecs into the lower Godavari river. Apart from these the district has received heavy rain during rainy season from June 1996 which are much more than the average rain fall received for the past number of years. On account excessive amount of water collect in our major agricultural tanks, breeched emptying large amount of the water into the Yerracalava dam. Intern yerracalava dam also treated creating widespread havoc all along its path. Added to that the other major river in the area Pena river also was overflowing. The loss of life is minimal as people climbed up the nearest hills or the nearest places for safety.
    Andhra it is unheard of in up land area. The West godavary district did not experience such havoc in the living memory. There were four districts affected by these floods and W.g.Dt became the most affected involving loss of crops ,fields .houses .lives and livestock. Due to the havoc people are rendered houseless. The homeless people moved to the other villages at the time and no scope for them to return back. They have no roof ,no walls to shelter them .Winter has in, children aged people and the lactating and expectant women are in the grief of cold wheather ,Hence providing shelter is dire need.
    Creating Educational facilities to the castes ,who are socially and economically downtrodden people from VI standard to XII standard in both media that is one in native tongue(Telugu) another in English medium..
    Removal of illiteracy of the adults between 15-50 yrs
    Re admitting of dropouts from school between the age group of 6*14yrs.
    Emancipation of women, who are backward due to superstition ,religious dogmatism ,through strengthening of self help groups ,developing community health programs ,make them aware of self the importance of scientific temper, Creating facilities for Pre-natal and post-natal care in order to bring down maternal rate mortality rate and infantile mortality rate.
    10)SOCIO ECONOMIC CONDITION: The people in this area are stratified into different groups called castes, Initially these were classified on the basis of colour ,later the classification has been ascribed to this to the decline sanction .Among the four strata fourth one is treated tower ,People born in to this stratum can never change their status since this not the achieved one ,the last one –fifth stratum gradually appeared through the contraries ,and the people born in to this category would enjoy status below the animals. The people of upper strata would even touch the animals .But if their people accidentally touch the people of the fifth strata who are otherwise called as untouchables would pollute them, They have to undergo perfunctory rites to clear the pollution .Not with standing the positive discrimination provided by the constitution. The position of this stratum remain the lowest ,Due to widespread corruption, nepotism and graft.

    11) SOME OTHER BENEFITS FROM EDUCATION: According to Amartya Sen, By 2015 I am award that when I argue that basic education for all can transform the miserable world in which we live education has intrinsic importance, the capability to read and write can deeply influence once quality of life .Also an educated population can make better use of democratic opportunities than an illiterate one, further an ability to read documents and legal provisions can help subjugated women and other approved group make use of their rights and demand more fairness .And female literacy can enhance women voice in family affairs and reduce inequality in other fields, Women empowerment through literacy tends to reduce child mortality and very significantly decrease fertility rates.
    11)SIGNFICANT CHANGES:1)To improve economical conditions of the poor children
    2)Providing employment opportunities to the educated persons who fall
    below poverty line

    12)ADMINISTRATION :1)Proposal for opening of new primary school in school-less centres

    2)Proposal for Up-gradation of primary schools in to Upper-primary schools.
    3) Proposals for Up- gradation of upper primary schools in to secondary schools
    and senior-secondary schools

    4) Proposal construction of library
    5) Proposal for construction of protected water supply scheme.

    revised estimates.

    Khushhali Foundation started its developmental journey from a small initiative, launched in 2008 by a group of five social activists led by Mr. Muhammad Taimoor in Palijani of Matiari District. Concerned about depleting sources of livelihood and employment, increasing poverty and social deprivation in rural Sindh and propelled by its own vision of sustainable, equitable and just society, Khushhali Foundation initiated a process of social mobilization in District Matiari and it’s outskirts initially. It was apparent at the time that there will be no effective grass roots development and real improvement in the living standards of the poor, without an integrated development initiative focused accordingly from different aspects. From beginning social mobilization has been a key aspect of Khushali foundation’s development strategy. Khushhali Foundation started its activities with an objective to facilitate peoples’ participation in development on self help basis; and facilitating to build institutional infrastructure in their villages to achieve the goal of sustainable development.
