Education Solutions

Every student deserves access to quality education. Yet there are many who miss out on basic opportunities to gain knowledge. Our education solutions help bridge the learning gap and support each stakeholder in their learning journey. From driving systemic change in schools to designing contextualized solutions that holistically empower students; from implementing robust scalable modules to creating an enabling environment, the local communities are at the heart of everything we do. We move beyond the school syllabus and activate the learning gene for life.

Whole School Transformation (WST)

Is a comprehensive process that guides schools to usher a system-wide change. The WST program seeks to improve the entire school system by guiding school leaders, teachers, students, and the community towards progressive change and 21st century readiness. The program strengthens the delivery of education by improving the entire school system and builds a value-based culture.

How it Works:

  • Situational Analysis and Baseline Study to understand ‘What Must Change'.
  • Leadership Development; Learning Enhancement for Students (English, Math, Language); 21st Century Skills for Students (Digital Literacy, Spoken English); Professional Development for Teachers; Community Outreach - to 'Make Change Happen'.
  • Endline Study and Stories of Change to report on the ‘Impact of Change'.

Outcome:

  • Result-oriented leadership – An empowered leadership that leads and transforms the learning environment favourably and drives change for the betterment of the existing education system in the school
  • Value-based school culture
  • Enhanced pedagogy skills – Teachers are mentored to enhance their teaching skills with emphasis on subject-enrichment for English, Language and Math
  • Improved student learning level outcomes in English, Language and Math
  • 21st century skills among students and community children

Learning Enhancement and Practice (LEAP)

An instructional program that provides an effective solution for students who have identified deficiencies in vernacular language, English and Math. The LEAP Program provides a robust structure for additional instruction to ensure students meet class level expectations. In addition, the program also builds teacher competency in raising student learning levels through need-aligned professional learning.

How it Works:

Diagnose: Identify learning gaps and challenges specific to the intervention schools by conducting 'Situational Analysis' and 'Baseline Study'.

Remedy: Create effective learning experiences targeting gaps; provide opportunities to students to showcase their achievement in both curricular and co-curricular areas;
provide customized learning assets such as LEAP content (lesson plans, worksheets), Science Kits and Math Labs, and Comprehensive Assessment Tests (Rapid Tests, Skills Tests); conduct co-curricular activities and community-based events.

Report: Throw light on the impact on learning levels by conducting an 'Endline Study' and sharing 'Stories of Change'.

Outcome:

  • 75% improvement in school attendance
  • 20% reduction in dropout rates
  • 25% reduction in remedial students after 1 year of the program
  • 95% of students passing out from 5th grade have taken admission in middle schools
  • Improved reading ability
  • Better School Management Committee (SMC) and community participation

Customised Solutions

We tailored a program for one of our partners with the objective of empowering teachers, students, community youth and women in Jawhar, Maharastra. The target population, being located in a remote region, is predominantly made up of tribal people lacking exposure to urban areas.
