We set up e-learning facilities in schools by providing the e-learning software, computers, speakers and other accessories as required (Projectors for big schools). In the software the entire syllabus is in audio-visual format with very interesting animations which makes it easy and fun for the kids to understand important concepts. We conduct regular follow ups in the schools, and through the use of a counter introduced in the software we know how much each chapter of each subject has been played and at what time.
We set up computer labs in schools. We provide 1 computer behind every 5 children in a standard. We also provide inverters on a case to case basis.
We conduct Art of Living’s yoga and meditation courses for students where the powerful techniques like yoga and Sudarshan kriya are introduced to the students. These techniques when practiced regularly help students to improve concentration, focus better on their studies, have high energy level throughout the day and reduce stress. Art of Living’s teachers conduct regular follow ups in the schools. Also all students in the schools start their day with 20 minutes of pranayam and Sudarshan kriya every day.
We conduct independent evaluation tests of the students, once every 6 months. These tests are basic arithmetic and reading tests which test the basic maths and reading skills of the students. After collecting feedback from the tests, we recommend areas to the schools in which they need improvements.
We give individual student sponsorships to a few selected meretorious students from financially weak backgrounds in a few private schools.
We conduct a 3-day teachers training program for all teachers of tribal schools before we start work in that aera. The teachers training program includes E-Learning training, various sessions on different topics like how to skillfully handle children, innovative teaching methods, Art of Living's yoga and meditation course, lectures by prominent speakers.
