Background of Learning Quality Problem: The nation-wide ASER surveys conducted every year, have repeatedly highlighted that the learning levels in Tamil Nadu have been consistently low in basic Tamil and Math. As a part of addressing this grave problem, Eureka Child Foundation along with its NGO Partners, has been running after school centres in rural areas to improve the learning quality. About us: Eureka Child Foundation was formed by a group of IIT and BITS alumni who quit corporate careers to work on improving rural education in Tamil Nadu. Our mission is to ensure quality education for every child and our various initiatives are aligned with this mission. We support to run after-school centres in 500 villages with a focus on improving learning outcomes in language, mathematics and science. We currently reach out to more than 25000 children in 23 districts of Tamil Nadu in partnership with other local NGOs Objectives of the Program: To provide high-quality education inputs to children from the poorest families in the villages and to ensure every child achieves basic competencies in Language, Math and Science. Basics of the Eureka Program: In each village, 2 local tutors will be appointed and trained to conduct daily after-school classes for 2 hours. Tutor1 will take classes for children in standards 1-5 (with a special focus on classes 3-5 using skill chart) and Tutor2 will take classes for children in standards 6-8 through innovative learning material and taught language, math and science through fun games and activities. Key Elements: •Individual Attention to lagging children •Tracking and measuring of skills through a simple visual tool called the ‘ Skill Chart’ •Attractive learning materials and per child worksheets •Village–level declaration of achievement of skills •Engaged parents and the local community participation •Intensive training and videos including field-level training
