A good quality education for their children is every parent’s dream; they see it as a ladder to a better life. And, not very long ago, government schools in India helped them get there. Several luminaries from various walks of life were, in fact, products of these schools.
However, a lot has changed in recent years. In the last two years alone, more than six and a half million children have moved out of government schools owing to the poor quality of education there. And countless small private schools promising ‘English medium’ education have mushroomed all over the country. Ironically enough, research shows that on average, private schools deliver only as well as the government school.
To change this scenario, we launched the English Learning Program in 2014. As part of the program committed Indians volunteer to teach at Government schools in their community. The volunteer is screened and trained before allocating them to a school. We have developed special modules that includes intensive speaking, reading, writing, and listening exercises for students. Our Program is designed not just to be child – friendly, but also teacher-friendly. We also create an English-speaking environment with the help of the volunteers so that children find it easier to assimilate.
The volunteers commit to one academic year’s classroom teaching. Over the academic year volunteers strive to touch the lives of each child and leave no one behind. The English Learning Program is currently active in Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Vijayawada and Vizag.
