Children from under-served communities in Central Assam
from Nagaon, Assam
*What are we doing to address this problem?
We believe that we must make learning continuous and affordable for these disadvantaged children during this time of the pandemic. Hence, we at 'Satirtha' are preparing weekly worksheets of different subjects for these children which will help them to engage in the process of continuous learning. We named these worksheets asHappy learning worksheets. These worksheets have been prepared taking reference from the curriculum. Besides, we also emphasized on the topic of Social Emotional Learningof children while preparing the worksheets.
Distribution of worksheets Children are practicing our worksheets
We also hold learning circles (LC) for the children from each of our stakeholder schools creating peer groups of 5-6 children in each. We maintain all the safety precautions such as masks, sanitizers, etc. for our children as well as ourselves. We are taking this opportunity to help the children to enhance their foundational literacy and numeracy skills. In each LC a lot of peer to peer learning happens between children. Moreover, we are also taking this opportunity to introduce Mindfulness and other Social & emotional learning activities among children. We ensure that for each group there are at least two LC’s in a week
