The Right to Education (RtE) Act 2009 mandates certain infrastructure norms for each school. Tracking the implementation of building school infrastructure as per norms, their maintenance, and feedback from various stakeholders to the Government authorities, and timely action, all on a large scale is a challenge, which American India Foundation is trying to resolve.
A mobile-based application that will allow stakeholders (SMC members, NGO staff, Government officials) to track the status of infrastructure facilities in schools, like toilets, drinking water, barrier-free access etc., and provide feedback on their maintenance. This GPS enabled application will allow users to upload the photographs of the ground reality, and enter the status of the infrastructure from a list of available parameters. This information will automatically be uploaded to a website that will show updates for each school on a map, and generate heat-maps showing the status, and improvement, of school infrastructure across a state.
