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. Teachers and children in such schools need innovative tools and approaches to learning. Tools and approaches that maximizes classroom engagement, so that they get the best out of the limited time they spend learning together.
Most children lack basic foundations in reading, science & mathematics. A national study shows that children are not learning in schools, 75% of children in Grade 5 cannot perform division in mathematics, and around 45% of children in Grade 5 can read only at Grade 2 proficiency.
ILP’s long-term goal is to transform government schools into fun and exciting learning spaces for children to become capable, conﬁdent, inquisitive and value-aware, and realize their fullest potential. ILP also acknowledges the role of teachers in schools and our interventions are built around teachers as the key facilitators of in-school learning.
Guiding stars of all our learning interventions are
- All subjects are equally important
- Learning doesn’t start or end at school
- Teachers are critical in facilitating the learning process
- Varied teaching and learning methods motivates a wider range of students
