Project Synopsis

Nalanda has always stressed on activities and strategies that cover the whole cycle of what is required for providing quality education to an individual child in a structured manner. While working in this direction, Nalanda realised that an intensive intervention wherein all the education needs of a child in a specified geographical area can be covered can produce very visible outcomes. Also, the intervention should cover the prime concern of quality and not merely access. In this context Nalanda proposes this interventions in three states (Jharkhand, Uttar Pradesh and Bihar with following objectives: To strengthen quality of education and competency of child learning, particularly elementary education, in the geographical region/cluster selected for the intervention, To bring the emerging models, particularly the Madarsa intervention sub component and the Learning Hub Sub Component, to a logical and sustainable conclusion and integrate both to the ITE sub component.

Proposed Project Description

Nalanda proposes to implement the program in three states. While working in this direction, Nalanda realised that an intensive intervention wherein all the education needs of a child in a specified geographical area can be covered can produce very visible outcomes. Also, the intervention should cover the prime concern of quality and not merely access. Thus Nalanda’s focus is in intensive, integrated and layering based intervention that covers different education systems such as private system, government system and Madarsasa.

 

The Broad Objectives of Proposed Intervention

  • To strengthen quality of education and competency of child learning, particularly elementary education, in the geographical region/cluster selected for the intervention.
  • To bring the emerging models, particularly the Madarsa intervention sub component and the Learning Hub Sub Component, to a logical and sustainable conclusion and integrate both to the ITE sub component to make for a more efficacious and inclusive intervention.
  • To develop a local resource base of people and NGOs so that this adds to program inter-linkage, cohesion and extensiveness.
  • To improve inclusion in quality education.

 

Details of the Madarsa program:

  • Extending inclusiveness in quality primary education to Muslim children, particularly those large numbers of children who attend Madarsas.
  • Transforming Muderris (teachers of madarsas) into capacitated and sensitised teachers imparting quality education.
  • Improving sustainability of the intervention and create resource Madarsas.
  • Improving inter linkages so that children from Madarsas may be better streamlined to mainstream system of education.
  • Increasing digital inclusiveness among the marginalised sections so that a Madarsa based low cost system of digital inclusiveness may be introduced.
  • Increasing awareness and involvement of NGOs so that they may take up the challenge of working on impacting the quality of education in Madarsas in a positive way.

This will be implemented in threes states in 6 district covering 300 Madarsa and the program will benefit 60000 children.

The key expected outcomes will be:

·         Inclusiveness in quality primary education extended to Muslim children, particularly those large numbers of children who attend Madarsas resulting in increased competency level to these children as depicted through sample surveys. Model Madarsas achieve sustainability by being registered so that they may formally function as resource Madarsas in future for the peripheral Madarsas. Muderris converted into capacitated and sensitised teachers imparting quality education as observed in classroom transactions and through comparison of sample pre and post test results. Improvement in inter linkages so that 10 percent more children from Madarsas successfully streamlined to mainstream system of education.

 
 

Salient Features

  1. Inclusiveness in quality primary education extended to Muslim children, particularly those large numbers of children who attend Madarsas resulting in
  2. Model Madarsas achieve sustainability by being registered so that they may formally function as resource Madarsas in future for the peripheral Madarsa
 

About Nalanda

Nalanda is a resource and implementing organisation in the field of education has been working in all the three states of Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Jharkhand since 1996 and has been registered under Society’s Registration Act 1860 and FCRA Act 1976. The idea of Nalanda was conceived by a number of social thinkers, management professionals and education experts, who felt that a separate institution needs to be set up to cater to the aspect of quality primary education, especially for children from the underprivileged sections of society.

 

Over the years, Nalanda has forged various collaborations with government agencies/projects like DPEP, SSA, SCERT, BalAdhikarPariyojna etc. Besides this, TATA Trusts, UNICEF, EDC, Plan India, Child Fund India, Magic Bus, IIMPACT, Action Aid, Aga Khan Foundation, Rajiv Gandhi Foundation etc. have been some of its renowned and important partners over the years.
