This initiative entails a comprehensive program for about 6000 students in 35 rural Government schools of Bhopal (25 schools) and Betul districts (10 schools) of Madhya Pradesh.

The primary focus of the initiative:

  •  Ensuring quality education of children ranging in classes 3 to 8.
  •  Training and capacity building of around 250 teachers.
  •  Improving reading and writing skills of the students while enhancing their performance in academic subjects.
  •  Improving the classroom atmosphere, which in turn would increase the attendance of students who are at a risk of   dropping out.
  •  Building social awareness on gender and health issues along with environmental sensitivity among students of classes 9 and 10.
  •  Providing career counselling and guidance to the students.
  •  Creating collaborative and constructive community engagement resulting in better parent-teacher relationship.

Multiple events such as summer camps, holiday camps, and other initiatives promoting the involvement of the community in the school are also organised as a part of this initiative. This initiative will benefit not only the village but also the society at large, leading to active engagement of about 700 parents and community representatives.
