In my CSR work with two firms on Education front, this issue is even more startling and struggle for teachers & students is very sad. In a AP Residential School for over 450 girls in Srikakulam, which produces excellent academic results - hearing the Principal talk about sanitation | health | security scenario collaborated with my client supporting these initiatives and kids - is heart rending. Despite such adverse conditions, spirit of kids is amazing as though they are oblivious to these circumstances.
One teacher in a Government school pointed out to me that if private sector support for education is by way of opening private schools as supporting Government schools is tough - where will you get teachers 10 years from now. Was stunned at this stark reality where Government funds schools infrastructure based on number of children studying there and if this reduces, teachers being allocated also reduces and this might kill the school system in coming years. 
Most of the intervention in name of CSR by my clients in Andhra Pradesh & Chhattisgarh is spent towards building school infrastructure which sadly in 75% of cases in remote districts is non-existent. Impact of CSR intervention by way of results will come after a long time as more kids need to come to school regularly which gets linked to mid-day meals, sanitation, drinking water & security - key issues in these areas.
Would be happy to get your feedback and ideas to help me answer my clients & their senior management questions why should CSR be done when the Government seems to be abdicating their responsibility completely now with this new Act for CSR has been passed. And my experience and the CSR audit done by TISS further establishes this point..

Nice story on Agriculture e-commerce with AgriBazaar.co
Check 3-day international agritrade fair - Agritex2015 at Hyderabad from March 30-April 1, 2015 
Inspite of being the backbone of our country, agriculture still remains far away from the benefits of technology and e-commerce. Find out how the extremely committed team at AgriBazaar.co is working towards changing that.
