Children are our most precious, valuable and fragile resource for the future. They must be ably educated and guided to be nurtured as responsible citizens. Quality and affordable education is the fundamental right conferred to all Indian citizens by the Government of India. TSPL is making constant efforts in increasing the interest of children in studies and improving learning and teaching practices through its educational programs.
This project aimed at delivering quality education in high and secondary government schools by bridging the teacher student gap. TSPL assisted these schools with volunteers to coach students in the subjects of science, mathematics and English. This led to significant improvement in the attendance, admission and passing out percentage of the students.
TSPL in collaboration with the district administration and gram panchayats has built new and up graded the existing anganwadi’s to provide an enabling environment for growth and able development of the children. The up graded anganwadi’s have been furnished with attractive and learning enhancement material such as vibrant wall paintings, play and educational toys and furniture.
The project aims at developing model schools by improving basic amenities and infrastructure in the peripheral schools to meet the education requirements of students. Two schools have been painted with exciting and vibrant learning displays of children’s curriculum and achievements along with provision of furniture for the students, while the gram panchayat has contributed for swings, underground water tank and leveling of the school grounds. The parents and guardians enthusiastically came forward to volunteer for cleaning of the school premises.
School awareness campaigns are a platform for discussing socially and scientifically important national and international concerns with students in schools. These are purposefully organized to sensitize students of the gray areas requiring their attention and intervention. Camps have been organized to mark days of national and international importance such as World Forestry Day, World Toilet Day, and World No Tobacco Day etc. in schools wherein the experts interacted with the students, and the students voiced their views via quiz, posters, slogans and elocution.
A district level quiz competition was organized by the name of Parakh Mansa- 2014. Parakh is a Punjabi word meaning test. The quiz competition was organized with the objective of nurturing the spirit of healthy competition among students. 101 teams from across the district participated in the quiz and the winners were awarded with cash prizes worth and certificates by the District Education Officer and the then District Commissioner.
