Challenge

Education in Sawai Madhopur, Rajasthan faces significant challenges. Government schools adhere to rote-memorisation methods and don't provide students with the skills needed for higher-level education. The literacy rate in Sawai Madhopur is 64%, lower than the state average. Girls are often discouraged from attending school, resulting in a 34% gender gap in literacy. The communities we work with are eager to address these issues but lack the necessary resources.

Solution

Gramin Shiksha Kendra hires community members and trains them in child-friendly education methods. The teachers then facilitate lessons in our three tuition-free resource schools that are based around discussion and interactive activities including pottery, theatre, and sports. As a result of this holistic education, our children have flourished. Graduates have gone on to gain admission to sports academies, attend local colleges, and join the air force.

Long-Term Impact

With more children showing interest to start schooling, this project will impact over 1200 children in Sawai Madhopur, providing them with an education that will teach them to think critically and prepare them for higher education.
