Roots Foundation, in collaboration with Acuity Knowledge Partners, India, endeavours to make an active contribution to primary education in our country. This project aims to impart educational aids & foster the zeal of learning and retention amongst the students attending government-run primary schools in Mandya, Karnataka via 5 innovative learning centres. A total of 1000+ students are being enrolled in this program for FY 2021-22.
This program is of immense significance more so in present times since children have not attended formal school for the most part of the last 16-18 months due to COVID-19 pandemic, resulting in heavy learning loss. Even worse, many bright young minds had to drop out of schools due to lack of facilities.
The project is being executed in customised smart classes where children learn basic maths, science, language and motor skills in small age-specific groups strengthening the roots of formal education and nurturing it with a blend of modern educational services.
