Current project(s):

Education Enhancement Program:

As compared to other contemporary education development models currently in progress which exclusively work with students, this model’s focus group is teachers, who would then reach out and impact the students thereby making it self-sustaining and more effective. Since teachers are the key players for the change we want to bring about in the society, we feel that in order to have a greater impact we need to work on improving teaching pedagogy. So in this way, in an indirect manner we would be touching upon lives of thousands of children.

We conduct a detailed audit of the school and venture into empowering the school itself. At the schools we not only conduct teacher training, but also workshops like anger management, team building, motivation and philosophy, along with academic planning, parenting, and life skills and remedial classes, with the teachers, parents and students respectively.

Total audience catered to: 1095 children + 60 teachers + 880 parents
