Project Description

Power of One school is a one-teacher alternative school model where out-of-school children are given education by a local community member. This person is trained in the Global Dream curriculum and methods and provided with teaching-learning materials hence equipping the member to become an edupreneur in the community. The project has been piloted with 22 women volunteers in Karauni in the Sarojini Nagar Block of Lucknow. These women prepared 180 women to take the NLM Basic Literacy Exam by NIOS. Together, they made more than 800 women in Karauni capable of reading, writing, numeracy. Later, the program was carried out in other cities targeted to educate underprivileged children, adults and their mentors.
