Summary

Effective quality school education is a basic need to overcome poverty. Yet thousands of tribal children grow up unable to read or write. Many cannot even sign their names. Agragamee a non-profit organisation based in Odisha, India facilitates easy, fun and effective learning through teacher training, lively innovative teaching learning material, and progressive education schools in the poorest districts. We help children in the most remote and underdeveloped regions have good school education

Challenge

Tribals Districts of Odisha have some of the lowest literacy rates in India. Despite schools in almost every village, learning levels are dismal. Thousands drop out of 5th, 6th, 7th having learnt little, others come out of high schools barely able to read. As tribal parents themselves have no school education, they are unable to monitor the progress of their children neither are they able to afford private tuition. This perpetuates the poverty-illiteracy-poverty cycle

Solution

The project will improve and expand Agragamee's established model of effective and quality education for first generation school children through training and supportive teaching learning material, in the form of fun and engaging workbooks, and story cards, charts, and rhyme books. The funds will be used for developing teaching learning material, improving teacher performance through constructive supports, and reaching out to Government schools to upscale the model.

Long-Term Impact

The project will help poor tribal villages have a first generation of literates and educated youth, who will be able access written information and news, helping them fight exploitation, actively participate in local governance, understand their rights, demand justice, specially for women, and improve their livelihoods and incomes. It will help break the cycle of poverty and illiteracy and facilitate socio-economic progress.
