Ask for an update


Rachnakar is an initiative started by Teach for India Fellows and alums. We aim to build preparedness in children by equipping them with 21st century skills like creative and critical thinking, collaboration and communication and emotional intelligence.  This will help the children to thrive in life, personally and professionally. We will do this by providing a complementary rigorous  arts curriculum within under resourced government schools. With this visual arts program, children will learn holistically.
We aim to solve the problem by providing the students with trained teachers and an arts curriculum.The curriculum will be rooted in creation of real-time art and design projects by the students, deepening their understanding of self and addressing the problems faced by their communities. This will also build greater sense of responsibility ensuring that the students do their bit towards giving back to their society while learning life skills.
The three phases of the program will be as follows.
Phase 1: Art/Design and Community Projects (for 6th to 8th)- The children will develop and apply their art and design skills to come up with solutions to the problems in their communities and go through self awareness sessions building emotional intelligence.
Phase 2- Leadership development (9th- 10th)- Children in this phase will help the phase 1 children and at the same time lead their projects independently by applying the previously learnt skills.
Phase 3- Specialized college preparedness (11th and 12th)
