  3. 4 Message from Kusuma Trust UK students to catch up with their peers; a programme to strengthen School Management and Development Committees; Kusuma Fellowship programmes in Hardoi, Sambalpur, Warangal and Uttarakhand; the construction of a mid-day meal kitchen in Odisha to feed 100,000 children every day; and Kusuma Resource Centres in Hardoi and Sambalpur to offer educational resources and courses for students, teachers and members of the community. The Trust collaborates with, and funds, the Kusuma Foundation, our main partner in India. This yearbook provides an overview of the progress made in 2013-2014, including some of the achievements. We intend to build on these achievements as we continue to support these programmes over the next few years. Our work would not be possible without the support of key government Ministries, departments and officials at State and district levels in India, partner organisations, Head teachers and teachers, and community groups. I would also like to thank the Trustees, staff and advisers of the Kusuma Trust UK and the Kusuma Foundation in India. The Kusuma Trust UK believes that every child and young person has the potential to transform and improve their life, and should have the opportunity to grow and develop as active and productive citizens in their communities. As an independent grant-making organisation, we facilitate and increase access to quality education and other life opportunities for economically disadvantaged children and young people. Through education we enable young people to realise their potential and break the inter-generational cycle of poverty. We fund a range of programmes aligned with our strategy in two focus districts - Hardoi in Uttar Pradesh and Sambalpur in Odisha. These include the Kusuma Schools Partnership Initiative to implement the government’s scheme, Rashtriya Madhyamik Shiksha Abhiyan, in 50 schools; Udbhav, a professional development programme for teachers of English, Science and Mathematics across both districts; a Science in Schools programme to transform Science teaching and learning; remedial teaching to enable Dr. Balwant Singh Chief Executive Kusuma Trust UK
  4. 5 Message from Kusuma Foundation Mr. Pankaj Vinayak Sharma Country Leader Kusuma Foundation Over the last year, Kusuma Foundation initiated programmes aimed at improving the quality of secondary education in our focus States of Odisha and Uttar Pradesh in India. The Kusuma Schools Partnership Initiative, a whole school development programme, works to identify and promote drivers of quality education in 50 government and aided schools in Hardoi and Sambalpur. The Kusuma team implements the programme with teachers, students, parents, governance boards and communities. Improvements have been made in libraries, laboratories, teaching and learning processes and school governance. Schools now pursue other improvements such as generators to power labs, remedial teaching for students, and substitute teachers to fill teacher vacancies. Kusuma Resource Centres in Hardoi and Sambalpur serve about 300 schools and provide access to teaching and learning materials, computers and the internet for students, teachers and community members. Kusuma’s Udbhav programme supports the continued professional development of teachers leading to improvements in teaching and learning processes and materials in government secondary schools in Hardoi. Udbhav will be expanded to Sambalpur in 2014-2015. The Kusuma School and Teacher Awards recognise the best performing teachers and schools in Sambalpur and Hardoi, offering a cash prize and supporting the professional development of teachers. The Kusuma Fellowship programmes in Odisha, Uttarakhand and Andhra Pradesh have provided financial and mentoring support to 843 bright students from poor families to pursue higher education after secondary school. This will expand to Hardoi, Uttar Pradesh in 2014-2015. Kusuma supported the construction of a Mid-Day Meal kitchen in Odisha that was inaugurated by Hon. Chief Minister, Sri Naveen Patnaik. It will feed 100,000 students of Khurda and Cuttack districts every day at full capacity. ThecollectiveeffortsoftheKusumaFoundation and its partners, and guidance from the Board of the Foundation and the Kusuma Trust UK team are the cornerstone of our initial success and we will continue to build upon this in the coming years.
  5. 6 In 2013, the Kusuma Foundation established a new programme, the Kusuma Schools Partnership Initiative, working with 25 secondary schools in the district of Sambalpur in Odisha and 25 secondary schools in the district of Hardoi, Uttar Pradesh. The aim is to raise student attainment, improve teaching standards and enhance the school environment. This five-year programme focuses on the professional development of teachers, building the capacity of Head teachers, providing learning materials and resources for students, and the construction and maintenance of school facilities. The programme is funded by the Kusuma Trust UK. The programme aims to increase the transition from primary to secondary school and the completion of secondary schooling. It aims to increase the number of students enrolled in follow up education and the number of eligible students in technical and vocational training and employment. The programme also intends to increase community participation in schools and create model schools that the State government will replicate and roll-out in other districts. In partnership with Kusuma, each school developed a school improvement plan to identify priorities to improve teaching and learning. The priority interventions for the 50 schools are: School Facilities • Advocacy with District Education authorities for completion of school buildings • Resources for playgrounds, including a compound wall • Clean and functional toilets for boys and girls • Dedicated science laboratory with science equipment and consumables • Electrical wiring and an authorised power connection • Safe drinking water • Benches, chairs and other furniture for students • At least two computers in each school • Libraries stocked with at least 100 books Kusuma Schools Partnership Initiative
  6. 7 Teaching • Qualified substitute teachers recruited to fill vacancies • Continuous professional development for teachers • Teachers using interactive teaching and learning materials and methods Learning • Textbooks available for students • Weekly library period scheduled • Weekly science laboratory sessions • Weekly computer classes for students Governance • Quarterly School Management and Development Committee (SMDC) meetings during the academic session • SMDCs complete and implement School Improvement Plans and deliver improvements Progress The immediate priorities for schools are the recruitment of teachers and improvements to facilities. The shortage of teachers means large class sizes and a difficult teaching and learning environment. Toilets in disrepair, a lack of desks and chairs in classrooms and the need for boundary walls around schools are other priorities cited by Head teachers and identified during detailed assessments of the schools. Head teachers and SMDCs also ensure there is active community involvement in schools. In 2013-2014, Kusuma provided generators to 29 schools, light bulbs and fans to 116 classrooms in 29 schools and 432 desks, benches and carpets to 14 schools. Twenty nine science laboratories were provided equipment and consumables and 50 libraries given books and furniture. A book bank was set up in all 50 schools with 22,200 textbooks for Classes 8 to 10. Forty one schools received toilet consumables and safe drinking water facilities were established in 23 schools. Kusuma supports the quality of teaching and learning in all 50 schools by assigning volunteer teachers to fill teacher vacancies. Volunteer teachers filled 450 teaching sessions in Sambalpur and 1,110 sessions in Hardoi. Advocacy with district and State government
  7. 8 for the appointment of teachers in sanctioned posts, laboratory assistants and librarians is another strand of the programme. Remedial teaching for Mathematics and English was delivered to 4,000 students in Sambalpur. Teachers visited high performing schools and training institutes to observe good teaching practices. Quarterly teachers’ network meetings and SMDC meetings were held in both districts.

  17. 18 In 2013, Kusuma funded the construction of a centralised and fully mechanised kitchen to deliver mid-day meals to 100,000 children in 190 government schools in Odisha. This modern kitchen and feeding programme is implemented by The Akshaya Patra Foundation. The Government of India’s Mid-Day Meal Scheme is a national programme supplying free lunches to children in schools to improve their health and encourage them to attend school. Funding from Kusuma supplements the Government scheme to ensure children receive a hygienically prepared, nutritious and hot meal in school every day. The construction of the kitchen was completed in July 2014 and the kitchen has been fitted with new equipment including boilers, rice cleaning machines, a cold storage, custom made utensils, conveyer belts and hygienic packing and cleaning facilities. Each day the kitchen cooks 5.5 tons of rice, 3.5 tons of vegetables and 1.2 tons of dal. The cooked food is then transported to schools in custom designed vans that are heat insulated, dust-free and have the ability to keep the food fresh. Trial feeding for 3,000 children took place on 25 June 2014 and the inauguration of the kitchen took place on 8 July 2014 in the presence of Mr Naveen Patnaik, the Chief Minister of Odisha. From 31 July 2014, twenty vehicles transport hot and nutritious meals from the centralised kitchen to 45,000 children daily. The kitchen will cook up to 60,000 meals from November 2014 and 100,000 meals from January 2015. Mid-Day Meal Programme
