Fund Utilization in 2017

Total funds raised in 2017 - INR 1752388

Project NameMuktangan Education Programme
Amount Utilized (INR)1752388
Project DescriptionThe Muktangan programme is truly “education for the community by the community” With community members being trained as teachers, the education offered is more culturally relevant for the students. The Muktangan schools are bubbling centers of active learning where community teachers are facilitating a
holistic learning process, catering to all domains of development (cognitive, affective, physical and aesthetic). A low pupil: teacher ratio of 14:1 enables an
individualized approach which ensures children have the freedom to learn at their own unique sequence. Also, since the teachers have themselves been trained in a method where conceptual understanding (through child observation) is the focus (rather than rote learning) the pedagogy adopted with students is naturally based on
“Thinking – Doing – Reflecting”.
The amount donated through Mumbai Marathon was spent towards the education of primary children, salary of pre-service trainees and towards the purchase of education-aid(computers).
