Akshara Foundation clearly recognizes the need for community based action around government pre-schools and primary schools and believes that believe that it will take a network of communities and organizations to come together to tell a story and galvanize community led ownership of the public schooling system to drive change.
A small start has been made and we have developed a space called the Karnataka Learning Partnership and have built a module to allow community members to voice their opinions - this model is called “Share-Your-Story” and draws the average citizen to visit schools and anganwadis and respond with their comments. This is the online piece of the puzzle for you, our volunteers, to help in this task.
A lot of the data and the Share-Your-Story component can be seen here:http://klp.org.in/visualization
What we need is help from you. Please locate schools or pre-schools close to your home or workplace and do take the first step - visit schools and anganwadis and engage with the school system. Help us ensure that all our children are in schools and learning well - in the long run this is the demographic dividend that our country can benefit from.
If you have any questions do send us a note at email@example.com.
