Vidyanjali - (School Volunteer Programme) is an initiative of the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Department of School Education & Literacy to enhance community and private sector involvement in Government run elementary schools across the country under the overall aegis of the Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan.

This programme has been envisaged to bring together people willing to volunteer their services at schools which really need them. The volunteers will act as mentors, confidantes and communicators with children.

In consonance with this objective, MyGov in collaboration with Ministry of Human Resource Development has developed a mobile application for schools and other educational institutions to engage interested citizens in volunteering for such on-ground engagements.

The application will enable interested volunteers to connect with government educational institutions including schools to mentor students. This mobile application would act as a nexus between the volunteers and government bodies under a Volunteer Management Program. Through this mobile application, mentors can interact with institutions directly and can contribute in the institution’s activity with relevant knowledge and skill set.

The application is an interactive mobile platform which facilitates communication between the two stakeholders helping institutions to post their academic and non-academic requirements seeking suitable volunteers for the specified role. The prospective volunteers, users of the application, would be able to show their interest based on the available volunteering opportunities viewing the list ordered basis fetched user location. The application would boast of a separate dashboard for institutions and volunteers both, which would be inclusive of a map enabling feature of locating both the institution and the volunteer. The exact locations of volunteers and institutions would be view-able through pin markers on the map.

The volunteer application would allow two-way search from the end of both the stakeholders. A volunteer would be able to seek activities and show his/her interest in the listed activities. Similarly, an institution would be able to search for volunteers who are using the app meeting their requirement, request for a volunteer, review a volunteer profile, and schedule a meeting for further action and appointment.

Hence, the application would help connect keen volunteers with educational institutions for being able to associate and work with the institution on need basis plugging in the vacant spaces. This would not only bring satisfaction to the volunteers but also make the students’ experience seamless. An application to this effect would serve as a successful and innovative alternative to resolve temporary issues of missing or incompetent human resource faced by educational institutions.

After seeing this and responses, I sense the following:
1. Very good initiative from mygov, clear attempt to fill the gap between demand and supply in the education sector.
2. Despite having a ministry, regulatory authority and educational delivery system in place why are we having gap in demand and supply.

I personally think no.1 should be an interim arrangement or temporary solution until the issue 2 is fixed. Please think about this, comment and press the like or dislike button. Thnks

we should always remember that by higher salary quality will not be improved...but Performance & insecurities in job & good discipline will lead to development of our country....Govt.employees are going for strike for 7 th pay but not demanding or allowing govt. to install biomatric machine for attendance at job place why???why???

They do not want to follow any disciplinary actions implemented by govt. why??First they should work follow rules & then they should demand...thx

It is very surprising & shameful that volunteers are required for schools..i am not understanding that after getting full salary with all benefits why Govt schools teachers are not working sincerely.???
\\ As well as our govt should also introduce performance based salary system like private schools + every where biomatrics attendance system should be placed+ no use of mobile during school hrs should also be introduced in GOVT schools like private well performing schools/// thx
