Werk

Volunteers would work with our long term volunteers and visit schools/communities 3-5 days a week to organise activities and sessions with kids according to age group. You are expected to stress on: • Importance of digital education • Responsible use of social media, internet and editing • Use of digital education in formal education • Knowledge of software • How to create E-mail account, digital payment –Google/RuPay, PayTM etc You are welcome to create activities based on your observation to build up life skills among kids and further share their views and experiences about various issues like growing up, biological changes during adolescence, drug abuse, violence, vices, social media, freedom of speech and expression, career guidance, social norms like Living Alone, Relationships, Independence, social life, personality development, communication skills, talent and creative interests. Since these children will become adults soon volunteers can discuss and educate about different aspects through creative ways like using charts, games, outdoor activities, speech, debates, Group discussion, drama, plays, theatre acts, films, videos, advertisements, books, poetry, literature and other methods in schools. Volunteers can help Young minds be aware about globalisation, technology and help open their minds to new ideas and thoughts.

Opmerkingen

We strongly believe that every child has a right to education and with this initiative we want to strengthen basic learning skills for children of age 4 to 18 years from rural institutes by introducing them and teachers to the non-formal education methodology which uses tools like creative art, drawing, painting, games, paper art (origami), charts, music, singing, dancing, audio/video aid and other innovative activity based methods to enhance the understanding of kids towards the topic by encouraging creative thinking rather than just text book learning. The recent pandemic introduced us all to digital classes along with work from home culture which brought into lime light the importance of digital education and the lack of it at institutional level. It was highly difficult and emotionally challenging for the countryside families to adapt to this new requirement due to economic compulsions, lower literacy level, lack of IT skills and no smart devices. However, it is good that people are prepared to acquire these skills. At present we work with 7 educational institutes (private and public) along with a day care learning centre at nearby slum which has more than 70 kids visiting it daily.
