Shikshantar project was implemented from March to June 2021. It has been initiated to ensure continuity of education for children during the COVID-19 pandemic. The project team provided high-quality remedial education to children, particularly girls enrolled in grades VI to X in Delhi, Bihar, and Odisha. The initiative is aligning with the ‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao’ campaign of the Government of India including SDG 4.1 that aims to ensure that all girls and boys complete free, equitable, and quality primary and secondary education leading to relevant and effective learning outcomes.
55 Youth Fellows were trained to provide remedial classes, track assessment through online MIS, and apply multiple strategies to support children in continuing their education. These Youth Fellows are aspiring young volunteers from the local community and serve as part-time teachers. They recorded teaching sessions on topics related to Mathematics, Science, and English and shared them with children over digital platforms.
