Through its partnership with Save the Children – a leading Child Rights NGO, The Muthoot Group has facilitated improvement in the quality of education in primary schools managed by East Delhi Municipal Corporation while supporting the National objective of universal enrollment and retention.
The initiative was aimed at providing academic support to children and strengthening pre-literacy skills of children below the age of 6 years, promoting leadership skills and creativity. The project also focused on imparting training to teachers, facilitating their capacity building and ensuring an inclusive learning environment.
The project has been a huge success with a wide impact. 130 teachers have been trained in inclusive learning environment and innovative teaching methods and 192 school management committee members in 12 schools and 10,008 children have been impacted through the project. An enrollment drive was also organised as part of the project. The drive reached a total of 11 communities and covered approximately 70,000 households in Delhi.
