Problem Encountered and Resources Required-

Lack of Transport: – one of the problems faced by students in rural areas is the lack of transport. Students are unable to commute the long distances from their homes to the college premises. The lack of proper road and public transport deter students from attending college daily.

Communication Gap: – The rural sector mostly communicates with each other in the local language. The medium of instruction in most institution in the rural areas is the local language. Where as the urban areas English is the most spoken language. This lack of knowledge of the English language prevents large section of the rural youth from procuring jobs in cities.

We must find the solutions to bridge the gap between education in rural areas and education in urban areas.

Best Practice III


  The Objective – Books and education play a major role in providing knowledge to people and in many cases opportunities to avail education are lacking while in other cases students don’t have access to books and important reference material. It is impossible for us to help one and all right away, but donating books is something that we can very much do, and this will help a long way in educating underprivileged students. Knowledge shared is, after all, knowledge squared, and books are the means to do so effectively. The Context- We often overlook the importance of books and how much of a difference they can make, especially in the lives of students. Books help students make sense of the world around them impart morals and values to them, often without sounding preach teach them empathy and the difference between right and wrong. It is believed that giving something wholeheartedly translates to personal happiness. In donating books you make other people happy as you make yourself happy. The Practice- The College started a new imitative ‘True Friends’ in which staff members and students can donate text books, reference books, journals and magazines to the college library. Our college is located in the rural area where most of the students belong to rural background and underprivileged families who may not be able to access all books which are related to their syllabus. We focus on reference books for different subjects and competition magazines as students from underprivileged may easily access these books. Evidence of Success- This beautiful initiative is publicized not only through the college prospectus given to the students every year but also by the teachers, in course of their regular delivery of the curriculum. Students motivated by their teachers to donate more books so needy and meritorious students can help. Problem Encountered and Resources Required- Some obstacles have been faced in the implementation of this best practice, which has been in vogue for the past years, and has been going on in a smooth, efficient and well-planned manner. For this practice, with teachers, more number of students also required for donation of books, but most of the students belong to the financially weak families. However, through the tireless efforts of teachers and students volunteers’ number of books donated to the college library.
