OUR INITIATIVES

1.

The education scenario in India has seen rapid progress over the last two decades in addressing the diverse challenges. School infrastructure has improved. Enrollment in primary schools has also increased to 96%. However, many vulnerable communities still face significant challenges in enrollment and retention. Our interventions focus on vulnerable communities and tackle the challenges like out of school children, poor attendance and retention.

2.

70% of children in India attend government schools predominantly in rural areas. Many children attending government schools are first generation learners. Their families are not equipped to guide their education at home (78% of rural adults have less than 5th grade literacy). As a result, teachers become the only source of guidance, thus putting extra burden on the already over-burdened teachers.

3.

Education plays an important role in preparing students for successful and productive careers and to make positive contributions to society. The education system must provide the information, skills and confidence required for students to have productive careers. Our student-centric Career Guidance and Pathways program equips them with detailed information about various careers, and enables them to effectively compete for jobs in the industry.

SUCCESS STORIES

Learning through play

May 26th, 2019|

When you enter the primary school in Mandiralvalasa village in Vizianagaram district, you will be greeted with a hearty ‘Good morning’ from a group of 1st Grade and 2nd Grade children sitting in one shared classroom. The most surprising part of this interaction is the confidence in those smiling faces.

Creating Real Models

April 21st, 2019|

In remote rural villages, children have few real/role models to look up to. Praislin, a young girl from Thirunindravur, Tamil Nadu, was forced to drop her educational aspirations as her father, the sole provider in the family, battled health issues. She was passionate about the English language and wanted to become an English professor.

Books not bricks

April 21st, 2016|

These young migrant children wandered around the brick kilns, and were being exposed to serious safety hazards. Slowly, yet surely they were also being forced into child labor in the brick kilns. Tamil Nadu is a land of 3,000 brick kilns where 90% of the 300,000 workers are seasonal migrants from within and outside the state.
