Kalkeri Sangeet Vidyalaya (KSV) is a school that provides education to students from underprivileged communities in North Karnataka. Admissions to the school are restricted to children from families facing socio-economic challenges, who are often marginalized and face limited access to educational opportunities.
KSV students come from a diverse range of backgrounds, with 30% belonging to Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes, communities that have been recognized by the government as historically, socially, and economically disadvantaged. 70% come from Other-Backward-Castes families that have been classified as below the poverty line. Additionally, 25% of the students come from single-parent families, and 5% are orphans.
The families of these students have also faced their own set of challenges. 15% of the parents are illiterate and did not attend school, while 40% of the parents did not complete primary school. 70% of the students are first-generation learners, highlighting the need for educational interventions for these families. Unfortunately, none of the parents have attended university, which is a reflection of the widespread educational disadvantages in these communities.
KSV is committed to providing quality education and improving the future prospects of its students, who come from some of the most marginalized and disadvantaged communities in North Karnataka. The school is dedicated to breaking the cycle of poverty through education and empowering its students to reach their full potential.
The KSV family is a team of diverse and highly motivated individuals who come together to form a dynamic and supportive community. Comprising more than 75 members, the staff is composed of professionals from various academic, artistic, and administrative backgrounds, who are all fully qualified and experienced in their respective fields.
