Project Synopsis

"Children from vulnerable backgrounds are not likely to have equitable outcomes in their adulthood and future lives. Many schools do not have adequate resources to invest in teaching and learning aids. There is clear evidence to suggest that achievement levels tend to decline as the children move along the educational hierarchy. This shows that schools are not able to cope with the teaching-learning load as the pupils’ progress through various grades. There is a need for transformation in the way people find, learn and consume educational content. Ignite+ is Bhumi’s school improvement programme that works with schools, shelter homes, and other institutions for children with infrastructural requirements that need to be ameliorated. Creative green learning spaces will improve the morale of all stakeholders in the school and is one of the many factors that affect learning outcomes, school dropout, etc."

Proposed Project Description

Children from vulnerable backgrounds are not likely to have equitable outcomes in their adulthood and future lives. The world today is changing rapidly and is getting more and more complex. The 21st century will bring new social, economic and environmental challenges and the next generation needs to be equipped with the confidence and adaptive skills to effectively tackle them. Many schools do not have adequate resources to invest in teaching and learning aids. There is clear evidence to suggest that achievement levels tend to decline as the children move along the educational hierarchy. This shows that schools are not able to cope with the teaching learning load as the pupils’ progress through various grades. There is a need for transformation in the way people find, learn and consume educational content.

Ignite+ is Bhumi’s school improvement programme that works with schools, shelter homes and other institutions for children with infrastructural requirements that need to be ameliorated. Creative green learning spaces will improve morale of all stakeholders in the school and is one of the many factors that affect learning outcomes, school dropout etc.
