Our education interventions are based on several baseline studies conducted, which showed lack of quality of teaching which prevented children from acquiring specific learning skills. Our aim is to bring about change by providing them the chance to learn in a creative and practical space.
We practice our “train-the trainer” model where teachers are provided with intensive
training on how to involve children in the learning process. Many of the activities in our
programmes are conducted with locally sourced materials.
The Education interventions is divided into five programmes – Strengthening Nali Kali, Learning Improvement Programme (LIP), Library, Proficiency in English (PIE) and Information and Communications Technology (ICT).
Since we started the education intervention,
have improved in learning levels
The Nali Kali intervention focuses on the joyful learning methodology practised in grades 1 to 3 in Government schools. The aim is to ensure early literacy competencies in Kannada language learning, basic numeracy and environment science, and to support children through primary and on to middle and high school. Supplementary activities developed by Kalike are being carried out by teachers in the classroom.Explore
