Challenge

There are no class examinations up to ix standard. Students learn nothing in the class and do not attend the classes regularly. The teachers neglect these students completely and concentrate on other regular students who are good at studies. Since there are no examinations at the end of the year the students backward in studies are automatically promoted to the next higher class. This goes on till Xth standard. Many students drop out in the middle and many fail in xth standard

Solution

Ten students who are backward in studies are selected in a government upper primary school in Srirangapattana taluk of Mandya district of Karnataka state, India. With the permission of the head master of the school & govt. education department these students are assembled in a separate room in the same school. A Bed. Trained teacher will be in-charge of the class, Her first duty is to see that the child attends regularly. With love and affection she has to train the students for 6 to 12 months

Long-Term Impact

Primary education is the basic need of every child. Somehow the child has failed to grasp the fundamentals. They remain uneducated for life & face problems in getting employment. They may turnout to be anti social elements in society. The project is aimed at training these children & teaching them fundamentals before they are sent back to the class. At present we have four teachers who train 10to12 students in each school, We intend to increase it to 10 schools. This helps 120 students.
