Improving Quality of Education for under-served children
  • Crisis: Quality of education all over the world has constantly been poor. The pedagogy model adopted by a lot of schools lacks a connection between the teaching-learning process and in spite of high enrollment rates we witness low learning outcome and higher drop outs. It is imperative for schools to adapt a higher responsive education model in this day and age.
  • Programs: Muktangan as an NGO has a sole purpose to improve the quality of education for underprivileged kids in India. To serve this purpose they have come up with innovative projects like: a) Muktangan Education Resource Centre (MERC) acts as a laboratory set up in schools implementing various new teaching-learning processes with 14 years of action research to better the future education system. MERC also caters to the learning needs for students up to Grade 10. b) The Teacher Education acts as an in house program that help for the development of under-served women, student friendly teachers, to make their knowledge relevant to the learning quality.
  • Outcome: So far, Muktangan has its presence in 7 municipal schools in Mumbai serving more than 3,500 students and 142 children with learning disabilities with the help of 421 teacher across all schools.
