ILR also has a strong community component, under which Katha runs community reading programs for children across slum communities and also works with women/mothers to spread awareness about India’s Right to Education Act and enlist them in efforts to ensure that all children in their communities enrol in and attend school regularly.

ILR is a holistic, multi-stakeholder model that engages all key stakeholders by: 

Helping children improve their reading skills, in school and in slum communities using stories that provide a culturally rich environment;

Training teachers to use Katha’s Story Pedagogy to engage children in learning, manage large class sizes, develop interesting curriculum, and linking learning to community issues to ensure education is relevant

Creating forums for school principals to share best practices

Empowering parents to take action on community issues such as access to safe drinking water, sanitation and healthcare to remove obstacles to regular school attendance; and

Engaging government to give Katha access to schools and demonstrate the model’s success.
