Co-creating With the Teachers
Teachers are an important catalyst in transforming a child’s life. A well-trained and motivated teacher can help a child in not only performing well in school but also help them to become confident, enhance their creativity and nurture values of love, togetherness and acceptance.
In the absence of skilled teachers, schools are unfortunately not being able to function in an effective and efficient manner. It gives rise to an increased number of drop-outs and low learning levels among children. Pre-service and in-service teacher training often fall short of equipping our teachers with the skills and mindsets required to succeed in teaching children from different backgrounds and varying needs. For children belonging to marginalized communities and geographically remote areas, the role of teachers holds additional importance and value. The teachers need to teach in a child’s mother-tongue, understand his local surroundings and incorporate them in classroom transactions.
To address the multi-faceted challenges revolving around government school teachers teaching children from marginalized communities, we are actively working with teachers to create a cadre of motivated and skilled teachers who promote inclusive, child-friendly and joyful classrooms/schools that will help the children to achieve appropriate age and grade-specific learning outcomes.
