Education is one of the valuable asset humans can achieve. School lays that foundation stone in building and shaping the personality of an individual besides aiding in enabling livelihoods. The present day education system in India has come a long way and the age old traditions have undergone a new transformation. One of the greatest achievements of India is the transition of the literacy rate from 18.3% in 1950-51 to 74. 04% in 2010-11
India has 47 million youth of secondary and higher secondary school-going age dropping out of school, according to a 2016 report by the Montreal-based UNESCO Institute for Statistics and Global Education Monitoring. There is plethora of reasons cited in different studies for dropouts in school in India. Some of them are lack of family support, lower accessibility, lack of interest, poverty, school teachers and so on. Strengthening the school system is the key to ensuring students life is not interrupted on their pathway to success. We collaborate with the state and the central government for implementation of various schemes pertaining to the development of education, large corporates through their CSR intervention directed towards education and other NGOs to ensure successful implementation of the programmes.

There is no alternate opinion to the fact that “Today’s children are tomorrow’s future for India”. It is our collective responsibility to keep them healthy to face the challenges of tomorrow with confidence.

Teachers play an extraordinary part in the lives of children for the formative years of their development and the importance of teachers is something that cannot be understated. Great teachers help create great students. In fact, research shows that an inspiring and informed teacher is the most important school-related factor influencing student achievement, so it is critical to pay close attention to how we train and support both new and experienced educators.
The teachers may or may not come with training experience, however they can be oriented towards teaching through a well-structured ‘Train the Trainer programme’. This programme can refresh the knowledge and skills more importantly in platform skills to deliver the course content.
Corporates can aid in the development programme for teachers through Sambhav Foundation. This will go a long way not in the lives of the teachers but also students whose education depends on them.
Schools, being the second home, serve a number of purposes in a child’s life. From boosting their confidence to making them learn the importance of team work and socialisation, schools do it all. Away from home, schools become the place for children to spend their maximum time.
Schools should create an environment that not only assures learning, but also pays special attention to the mental and physical well-being of the students. Studies and researches conducted to figure out the effect of infrastructure suggest that students in schools with poor infrastructure can have lower achievement scores as compared to the ones studying in schools that have better infrastructure and facilities.
We partner with corporates for implementation of their CSR initiatives oriented towards infrastructure development in schools. Possibilities for infrastructure development in schools include construction of toilets, lab development, library development, recreational facilities, development of classrooms, etc.
