Haryana Government's Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities have now urged the corporate sector to provide funds for the betterment of the government aided schools.
On this initiative, Education Minister Ram Bilas Sharma said, "A co-ordination committee has been formed as part of the measure aimed at filling the funding gap in the sector and improving quality of education. Fortunately, Haryana has a large number of reputed corporate houses and the government is keen to attract Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) funds direct or indirect apart from the state budget allocated for education so as to inject quality in education system. The government has framed a state-level CSR Co-ordination Committee in education with an aim to fill funding gaps in the government school projects and to avoid the duplication in ongoing projects."
He also added, "It would co-ordinate and channelise the efforts to achieve goals and facilitate CSR works through implementing agencies like the NGOs and Corporates, monitor and review CSR activities implemented by various agencies, handhold, co- ordinate, facilitate and monitor the impact on Education Development Index (EDI) of the state or district and share best practices in CSR among corporates. There would be three separate committees so as to evolve a more scientific and professional approach in the execution of CSR activities effectively. These are State Level Steering Committee in Education, Core Committee which would be Sub-Committee of State Level Steering Committee and District Level Steering Committee in Education. Establishment and development of Art and Craft or Music Labs among other measures required in the field of education for development of the state."
