New Delhi: Newgen Software Technologies Limited and Kinship for Humanitarian Social and Holistic Intervention in India (KHUSHII) came together and signed an agreement to implement Shikshaantra Plus program in Govt. Primary School in Harkesh Nagar, Okhla, New Delhi.
This partnership is benefitting approximately 2,800 children (1379 Girls and 1478 boys) in the school.
This collaboration has enabled the process of complete school transformation to empower children from poor and marginalized communities leading to improved life of dignity through education.
Many recent survey analyses have shown that learning levels in Government run primary schools have remained consistently low. More alarming is the fact that almost half the children drop out after 8 years of elementary education, without acquiring minimum acceptable foundation skills.
Poor classroom processes have been identified as a major reason for the low learning outcomes nationally.
Without adequate facilities to improve learning, children, especially those who have entered the first time in a formal school, will lag behind and result in low motivation to come to school.
This is the basis of KHUSHII for choosing to work in Govt. School and impact on the indicators nationally.
This partnership will address the challenges of poor infrastructure, low Pupil-Teacher Ratio, low learning levels and drop-out in the intervention school.
Under the partnership, many new facilities will be introduced in the school to improve attendance and engagement which will hopefully result in a reduction of dropout rate.
Under the program, remedial education in Hindi, English, Mathematics and EVS and counseling support by providing a certified counselor, digital learning, and extracurricular activities such as sports, recreational, art and craft will be conducted.
Additionally, channelization of resources to train teachers, infrastructural improvement in Computer lab and monthly maintenance of sanitation facilities will be undertaken to improve the learning experience for children.
