Summary

Poor quality of education in government schools where economically weaker students study leads to unsatisfactory "learning outcomes". We at LOKMITRA 1) Enhance capacity & motivation of teachers through peer learning & hands-on support 2) provide apt learning materials to improve teaching 3) Capacitate School Management Committees, leading to improved learning. This appeal is to enable LOKMITRA to be synergetic in impacting 1000 school directly and indirectly in four districts of Uttar Pradesh

Challenge

Uttar Pradesh has 25 million children in Grade 1 to 5. About 45% of children go to government schools & nearly 90% of children do not achieve Grade appropriate learning. As per ASER 2016, in Uttar Pradesh & in Raebareli, 75% Grade 5 government schools children could not read Grade 2 level text and 90% could not do simple division. This has been impacting the future prospects of children to earn a decent livelihood. This leads to poor education of the next generation & perpetuation of poverty.

Solution

Lokmitra focusses on two key stakeholders: teachers & parents. This is done by facilitating teachers to become reflective practitioners and building the culture of peer learning. Thus teachers get empowered to focus on the learning outcomes. It supports teachers with lesson plans & suitable learning materials. It demonstrates effective teaching methodology. Parental involvement in learning outcome is ensured by raising awareness & parent's participation in School Management Committees.

Long-Term Impact

Better education of children will enhance their livelihood prospects when they grow up as adults. This will provide for better education and health of the next generation of children. In the long run, project will contribute to making society more inclusive/equitable. There will be sustained improvement in schools through local level driving force of collaborative effort and mutual accountability. This behavioral change will result in reduced role of Lokmitra. Other schools may also adopt this.
