ACCESS TO EDUCATION

While working in the villages for over 6 decades, one thing has presented itself clearly that education is the route to change in a society, it not only empowers children to a better future but also improves the attitude towards each other, the lack of which creates narrow minded, selfish individuals and society.

We strive to improve the learning abilities of children by successfully integrating arts and culture, sports and experiential learning in their curriculum. A child-friendly educational method foster self-learning and allows a child to study according to his or her aptitude and skill.

OUR IMPACT

  • FOSTERING ARTS & CULTURE

  • EXPERIMENTAL LEARNING

    Experiential learning is learning by doing. The children gain knowledge and acquire skills through direct experience. It connects new knowledge to past experience, finds insightful patterns through analyzing the experience, and applies those new discoveries to everyday life situations. This leads to a change in thinking and behavior when encountering the next experience, whether in or out of the classroom.


    While working to create a better society also wants to ensure a better environment for the people to live in. In addition to hygiene and nutrition, we also give the children environmental education to make them responsible for the same. We teach them water conservation, pollution control, energy conservation, tree growing and recycling.


    Environmental education is given a great amount of weight in the whole curriculum which would also include projects form the participants. Simple exercises like planting a tree or conducting a campaign to reduce plastic product usage will bring a positive change surely. More than these activities it’s important to make people realise unless if they are responsible they wouldn’t have a good environment to live in the future.


    16,345 kilos of vermicompost was prepared by the students. Organic beet was also cultivated and harvested by the children which was used in their mid-day meal so that children learn waste management and city composting.


  • CIVIC AWARENESS

  • JOYFUL LEARNING

    A child friendly educational method fosters self learning and allows the child develop their physical, intellectual, social and emotional skills. Our teaching offers an alternative to the orthodox and rote education that is most common. We strive to improve the learning abilities of the children by:


    • Creating engaging learning environments
    • Giving children a deeper understanding of all concepts through integrating arts & culture, sports and experiential and active learning in their curriculum.
    • Focusing on ensuring that the child can become an independent and motivated learner
    • Inspiring curiosity, and teaching the child critical thinking, social and questioning skills.

    Our lessons are planned by the teachers and the Educational Programs Director during planning meetings where they focus on personalising and enriching the state syllabus based on the classes’ requirements. We are able to know and understand each child’s needs and interests which allows us to create an inclusive and engaging environment for all children due to this approach. A comprehensive model that involves working with principals, teachers and other non teaching staff in the areas of school development and improvement, teacher development, design and development of teaching aids and classroom resources.


    We aim to create a scalable, replicable model that can be adopted by government schools across India.
