Our Exemplars endeavour to ensure that ‘every child receives a good-quality education irrespective of their background’. They present an opportunity for corporates to engage with our cause and add to the learning journey of children in a remote setup while receiving exposure to the lives of children from vulnerable communities.

Virtual Story-telling For Children

 

Peepul

Program Description

Peepul runs three exemplar schools in Delhi under a public-private-partnership with the South Delhi Municipal Corporation. These Exemplar schools cater to over 1000 children who hail from the poorest of the poor backgrounds – the most vulnerable. As part of the partnership, Peepul is responsible for the entire ‘enrolment to attainment chain’ of the students. We hire and train teachers who cater to the students while taking care of the regular day-to-day functioning of the schools. We engage with the community, parents, students and government to ensure that our schools are able to serve each and every child within its premise. These schools are lighthouses for the possibilities in a government-administered school, proving that high-quality education is possible in government schools – they are the bright spots! The schools implement international best practices contextualized to the context of the students. The results that our schools have achieved are remarkable – 85% of our students meet or exceed grade-level expectations with more than 75% average attendance.

 

The approach that we have taken is towards ‘whole-school transformation’ in our schools. At the heart of our approach lies the strong focus on creating ‘meaningful student-teacher interactions’ which ensure that our children learn, and do not drop out of school. From enrolment to retention, our data shows exemplar results therefore. Our students are at the centre of our existence, and all our efforts are towards ensuring that they learn. They come from the poorest of the poor families with average household income of the families between Rs 5000-6000.

 

The volunteer activity would be focused on creating meaningful interactions for our children through story-telling sessions. Given COVID, and the times of social distancing, the activity will be done virtually/remotely. The session would involve getting into Whatsapp con-calls with our students and conduct a storytelling session in the presence of a Peepul teacher. At any session, up to three students would be present on the calls along with one volunteer from the applying organisation.

 

Benefits for volunteers:
- interact with Peepul students and experience impact of Exemplar schools
- Exposure to the lives of children from vulnerable communities
- Opportunity to contribute to the lives of children through the art of story-telling
- Virtual engagement with a social impact cause

 

These sessions will all be carried out in the presence of a Peepul teacher. Before the calls, we will orient the volunteers on certain do’s and don’ts as part of a sensitisation exercise to ensure a smooth and meaningful interaction with the children. Peepul will facilitate these sessions and schedule them in coordination with the applying corporate organisation.
