Volunteers at Udupi gram panchayats (GPs) have been working on a project to improve the lives of class VIII students by the time they reach class X. A team of experts has already created a curriculum, and volunteers are focusing on improving the basics of math and science. There will be life-skill sessions, app-based learning, education-based films screened, and various competitions based on reading skills.

The team plans to introduce Grantha Mitra to three more libraries this academic year, to improve access and make them more user-friendly. Public awareness programs will also be held. Health check-up camps, book fairs, an open house for the public on various issues, and talks related to agricultural activities and government schemes will be held.
