Education continues to remain a challenge in India. In fact, it is one of the top most UN Millennium Development Goals. Pehlay Akshar is RPG Foundation’s initiative to address this huge social need gap.
Interventions begin from standard IV and continue to standard IX. For six years, the project works with government-schools to teach functional English skills to students. Both spoken and written English is taught, enabling students for future employment. At the same time, a creation-based approach with an inquiry structure that uses innovative and interactive learning, is used to encourage new ways of thinking.
In addition to education programs, mentorship and teacher’s training programs are well-integrated with the objectives, thus helping students attain their ultimate learning goals.
