Vidya & Child is a project managed by Jayaprakash Narayan Memorial Trust and was started in 1998 in Noida, Uttar Pradesh. V&C provides education to those who don't have access to facilities for learning in society.
Some of their programmes are:
School Programme: This prepares children for mainstream schools. This programme reaches out to over 1,100 children. Classes are held from Nursery to Class V with a teacher-student ratio of 1:20. It follows an internally developed curriculum with a strong focus on providing a creative learning environment for the child. After completion of Class V the child is admitted to a C.B.S.E. affiliated mainstream school.
After School Support Programme: This programme provides academic support to over 180 children from Class VI to X. V&C provides academic support to reinforce concepts to help each child cope with the school syllabus. Regular tracking of attendance and academic performance is done child-wise. A structured ‘child-engagement’ and ‘parent-engagement’ process helps a parent know their child and his/her challenges.
NIOS Support Programme: The objective of this programme is to ensure that children who are not able to continue in mainstream school, have the opportunity to complete their education through NIOS (National Institute of Open Schooling). More than 30 children benefit from NIOS. Key features of NIOS include a) Academic Support & Training, b) Life Skills Training, c) Exposure to Creative Arts, and d) Regular Parent Interactions.
Foundation Programme: This initiative provides financial, mentoring, and tutoring support for over 90 children from Class XI onwards. This programme also aims to develop a mature, balanced attitude towards career and life, through career counselling and life skill sessions.
Arts and Performing Arts Programme: This offers 300 children at least one arts (dance, music, arts and crafts) related learning activity.
Life Skills Programme: This programme involves training in life skills through a separate dedicated curriculum. All 1,600 children exposed to the Life Skills Programme are taught content that is age-appropriate and addresses issues in their lives.
Other programmes include Arise Lab School project, Language Development, Computer Aided Learning, Children Parent programme, Library and Health programme.
