Dear Friend of Transform Schools at People For Action

This festive season we want to THANK YOU for helping us ensure that every child, irrespective of their socio-economic status and gender, gets access to quality education. 

In our last update, we shared our outreach in the rural areas of Odisha and Chhattisgarh and promised to share results from our assessments. Baseline assessment was administered in our partner states in the months of April, July and August respectively to assess the learning levels of Class 8 and 9 students. The results have been alarming. Analysis of data reported from 8,936 schools shows significantly low learning level among students in all subjects putting them at high risk of dropping out. 85% of students have learning levels at or below Class 3 in Mathematics and Science in all the three states.

But, these results only make our resolve strongerto outpace the problem of low quality education in India. As you read this, our 200 hour accelerated learning programme, administered over 69 days is being rolled out in all the government secondary schools in Odisha and Chhattisgarh to help bridge the gaps highlighted in the baseline assessments. 

Watch this space for an update on the endline results and for the progress that these children make! Every grade level jump ensures a better chance for students to stay in school and transition to higher levels of education.

In other news, it has been an eventful year for our team here at Transform Schools! We have built on existing relationships, entered into new partnerships throughout the year, and beginning October 2019, our flagship programme Transform Learning is operational in 4 States of India- Odisha, Chhattisgarh, Haryana and Himachal Pradesh.

Team Transform also hosted a launch event on 12 November to bring together its supporters and to celebrate 11 months of its existence and growth.  Please find the key takeaways from our event appended with this report.

We thank you for your endorsement of our belief in the potential that every child and young person carries. In our quest to provide them with opportunities that can help them thrive, we call upon you to help us spread the word about our programme and about our project on Global Giving. 

Warmest regards

Transform Schools

Dear Friend of Transform Schools at People For Action

THANK YOU for helping us ensure that every child gets access to quality education. With your help we have been able to reach 6,27,594 students in Odisha and Chhattisgarh. By end of the academic year, we hope to report at least 30% of our students reach class appropriate learning levels with 100% students showing overall improvement.

Our endeavor is to outpace the problem of low quality education in India. For this, we work with the available government school architecture in collaboration with State governments. This helps us get access to infrastructure and a tremendous opportunity to shift the needle on the learning levels of students attending these schools.

This academic year, along with reaching nearly 0.6 million  students, we have also reached 46,052 teachers  in 11,513 schools through training on effective teaching methods that they subsequently apply in their classrooms. 

As we expand our reach, we want to ensure the upkeep of high quality delivery of our programmes through regular monitoring and QA visits. We hope to bring you insights from these visits in our subsequent reports.

Meanwhile, we are stoked to share a testimonial from a student from a government secondary School in Odisha:

 "I think Utkarsh (Transform School's learning programme) should be available in other schools in rural areas as it will allow the students to learn more concepts from this programme."

We also urge you to go through the media links and our quarterly newsletter (our very first!!) that are appended with this report.

We thank you for your endorsement of our belief in the potential that every child and young person carries. In our quest to provide them with opportunities that can help them thrive, we call upon you to help us spread the word about our programme and about our project on Global Giving. We are just six months old but extremely passionate about what we do, with a stubborn belief in what we can achieve. 

Warmest regards
