For Aarunya, the last year was the best of years and the worst of years. In June 2020, as schools remained closed because of COVID, we quickly pivoted to a remote teaching program called Aarunya Remote Teaching or ART. And many of you helped make that program a reality with your support. Our volunteers worked heroically with children and parents as they dealt with job losses, re-location, struggles to keep phones charged. But through it all, we stayed on with the children, doing 30 min classes over a phone, being their ONLY source of education for the year.

With schools still closed, we are gearing up to reach out to a larger cohort of students. In addition to the children in the program the last year, we are expanding to take on more children in the schools that we worked with. We are also taking the ART online education program to children in orphanages in Bangalore. We need your support to make the ART program a reality for all these children. The funds raised would be used for:

  • Developing content and teaching collateral like lesson plans and customized flashcards for ART on two mediums(telephone and online) for different levels of our program
  • Content creation and audio recording of stories, songs that reinforce concepts taught
  • Printing and purchase of teaching collateral like activities, story books, teacher books
  • Printing and distribution of workbooks and stationery for the children
  • Developing content for ART teacher training and expanding the training team
  • Deploying Teacher training for volunteer teachers.
These videos will show you how ART was deployed and speaks to it's effectiveness.
