“Majority of the Indian population sends their children to Government schools. This is true even in cities, and these Government Schools form the backbone of the children’s development. According to the latest ASER report, 70% of children in India go to Government Schools. Since most of them are first generation learners, families of such children are ill equipped to provide necessary guidance for their education at home. In addition, rote-learning practices in traditional schooling system do not encourage experiential learning, nor foster creative thinking. Most children lack basic foundation and not at the learning level they should be. They have minimal exposure outside of academic topics and Schools do not provide suitable environment for their emotional development. “


” The concept of School Transformation is based on the foundation that • Equal importance should be given to all aspects of the curriculum • Learning is not restricted to a curriculum. It should extend to help holistic and balanced development of a child • One learning style doesn’t work for all. Learning should involve visual, auditory and experiential methods • Learning does not stop at school and it can happen anywhere and any time • Child’s development should also cover emotional and social development We offer a wide variety of academic inputs and non-academic exposure to children from an early age so that they do well not only in studies, but also learn about themselves, discover their interests and abilities so that they can take ownership of their lives with awareness and with confidence. Through this we hope to bring about individuals who are capable, confident, inquisitive and value aware, individuals who have the potential to become change agents in the society. “


“Our approach of School Transformation: 1. Holistic approach – Equal importance to all aspects of curriculum and importance to learning beyond curriculum 2. Not to reinvent the wheel – We partner with other NGOs and always look for existing ideas before inventing our own. This saves cost, involves a larger section of the society and makes implementation faster 3. Focus on all forms of learning –Experiential, visual, auditory and more 4. Teacher training – Teacher training does not bear the required impact if we don’t ensure a. That the tools required by the teacher for the alternate ways is teaching is made available to the teacher b. That there is regular support being provided to ensure successful transition to the new teaching methodology a. Through this program, we are completing the cycle and ensuring that training is followed up by resource availability and support/push to implement the change 5. Computer skills/Literacy – Computers are ubiquitous today and exposure to computers is a must for all children. It is not just about learning how to use them, but also to unravel the mystery behind them. Computers are also a great way to teach children logical reasoning. 6. Focus on Reading ability – Creating a love to read is one of the key goals of the program. Books (on-line/offline)are a treasure trove of information and creating an interest in children to read not only helps them improve their reading ability, but creates a lot of interest in general learning 7. Inter-school competitions – This provides a platform for children to do hands on project and share their work across a larger audience. Children learn about team work, preparing a lot about the topic of their choice, presenting what they have done, confidence and more. 8. Environmental awareness – Sensitizing children about the environment around them and telling about their role in the conservation of our nature. 9. Career Guidance – A very thorough approach that helps children understand their local economies, careers outside their local economies and information about what it takes to get there. This followed up by counselling helps them take the right next step. 10. Guide schools for their extracurricular programs- Work with schools and become their guide for helping them implement extracurricular activities that are already funded by the government. Essentially become the consultant advisors for overall development of children in schools.
