Shiksha Protsahan Kendra

Shiksha Protsahan Kendra is an effort to enhance learning abilities and decrease dropout rates of students from low economic backgrounds. The project aims to improve access to education through Nonformal study centers for marginalized and tribal children in the Potka and Karandih block of Jharkhand. Shiksha Protsahan Kendra provides proven intervention strategies for replication and inclusion in dropout prevention. The SPK’ s centers will impact basic literacy and numeracy education in a non-formal setting to allow working children to attend at a time convenient to them and of their own willingness. A baseline survey will be conducted to identify children engaged in child labor, out-of-school children, and children without access to education. In East Singhbhum ’ s 2 identified blocks the process of creating an inclusive education system is more difficult. Factors such as lack of available funding, administrative and policy level support, and properly trained personnel pose significant challenges that slow down the progress. Key factors influencing the success of inclusive education are, among others, the education of student teachers and the level of awareness among teachers and parents. The program is specifically targeting the in school children.

Protsahan Parv

Protsahan Parv is a festival to motivate and encourage students to realize their creative and intellectual potential, and build a dream for their future. A Protsahan Parv is a one day event with three hours of daily activity, in which multiple inputs are provided to students in the areas of: ·New learning and exposure (quiz, map activity, learning games) ·Creativity (dance, songs, art & craft) ·Personality Development (Life Skills) ·Aspiration building (through films showing how children from modest and vulnerable background became high achievers) Protsahan Parv has been immensely successful with students as well as teachers, in our previous programs in Ashramshalas in Jharkhand and with the camp schools in Noamundi. All of them expressed the desire to participate in such events on a regular basis, to enhance learning with fun. The event had science, art, craft, singing, map activity, painting, dancing and games as the main attraction. It took place in four different basti’ s with approximately 600 slum children of Jamshedpur; Parvati Ghat, Baldev Basti, Kaankhajura Basti and Swarnrekha Basti.

Reports says 85% of Juveniles who cycle through the Juvenile court system cannot read. What's more ,they are exponentially more likely to commit crimes as adults.Literacy and numeracy are essential skills needed in day to day life and are considered basic employability skills for most workplaces. Finding this gap amongst children in the Juvenile Home, People for Change volunteers along with art,craft, painting among children also focus on improving their numeracy and literacy abilities.

Art among adolescents boys is undertaken to bring positive development outcomes.

Ghadhidih's Observational Home

Teachers who foster positive relationships with their students create classroom environments more conducive to learning and meet students' developmental, emotional and academic needs.
Every teacher must establish boundaries. Having said that, being friends with students will, more often than not, leave a positive impact on them. It makes them less nervous in voicing their opinions, and concerns and much more likely to confide in you. Being friends with your students also helps in enhancing their involvement in the learning process.
People for Change has been working with children in conflict with the law who reside in Ghaghidih's Observation Home.
We have been trying to set up a child-friendly safe environment for the children to open up about themselves and express themselves through different means like art, theatre and have a behavioural change. There are educational sessions for the children as well.
Some of the boys have opted to sit for science sessions. While returning back, one boy was waving at me, I enquired,why did he not come in the class? "Science samajh hi nhi aata toh kya karunga" is what he replied. I said,"baithte toh kuch na kuch seekh lete". He felt nice that I spoke to him,next class,he showed me all his drawings and told me he loves dancing too.
