Aarohan Model Of Education – Methodology
HOME . AAROHAN MODEL OF EDUCATION – METHODOLOGY
Education Program Approach:
Aarohan has a unique model of education with quality deliverables. It has covered many milestones, received awards for its unique approach and holistic support to education. In Aarohan, the dropout rate is only 2-3%. The percentage score of students mainly lies in the 60-100% range. Every year our students top their class with a very high percentage of marks in their respective classes.
Working with children from marginalized sections of society has its challenges. We have identified some of the key issues and also found unique and innovative workarounds to address them.
First-generation learners – Most of the children are from a poor background, so it is hard to create interest in studies. We have made classes more participative which makes studies more interesting. Our classroom walls are covered with creative materials to create a happy and vibrant environment. Aarohan believes that every child is different and acts according to the need.
Parent’s indifferent attitude towards studies – To address it, Aarohan takes on the role of the parent and provides holistic support to the child. The timetable is flexible for parent-teacher meetings. Teachers are available 24×7 for any query. Every teacher has their WhatsApp groups with children and parents. Counseling sessions are planned with the parents and students to solve this problem in groups and individuals. Regular meetings with school teachers to know the track record of the child’s growth and are maintained.
Most of the parents are migrant workers, they go back home when they don’t have work – To fix this problem, vocational training is provided to increase their employability and inform them about various government schemes related to this. We also collaborate with other NGOs to help the parents with livelihood opportunities.
Challenges of Access – Cycles are provided to the children who come from faraway places especially girls. In the unprecedented situation arising out of the lockdown and COVID19, Aarohan stepped up and provided tablets and smartphones at the center to ensure that children do not lose out from their online classes.
Lack of Nutrition – Nutritious meals/supplements are provided to address malnourishment. We also hold workshops with parents to make them understand the importance of providing the right kind of food for their overall development.
