Newgen extends support to 2,800 children through Shikshaantra Plus program in Govt. Primary School in Harkesh Nagar, Okhla, New Delhi

Posted On: 2019-09-23 16:47:43

Newgen Software Technologies Limited and Kinship for Humanitarian Social and Holistic Intervention in India (KHUSHII) came together in the month of August and signed an agreement to implement Shikshaantra Plus program in Govt. Primary School in Harkesh Nagar, Okhla, New Delhi. This partnership is benefitting approximately 2,800 children (1379 Girls and 1478 boys) in the school. This collaboration has enabled the process of complete school transformation to empower children from poor and marginalized communities leading to improved life of dignity through education.

Many recent survey analyses have shown that learning levels in Government run primary schools have remained consistently low. More alarming is the fact that almost half the children drop out after 8 years of elementary education, without acquiring minimum acceptable foundation skills. Poor classroom processes have been identified as a major reason for the low learning outcomes nationally. Without adequate facilities to improve learning, children, especially those who have entered the first time in a formal school, will lag behind and result in low motivation to come to school. This is the basis of KHUSHII for choosing to work in Govt. School and impact on the indicators nationally.

Newgen Software and KHUSHII have committed to addressing these challenges by promoting equity to enable children to learn, explore and achieve. This partnership will address the challenges of poor infrastructure, low Pupil-Teacher Ratio, low learning levels and drop-out in the intervention school. Under the partnership, many new facilities will be introduced in the school to improve attendance and engagement which will hopefully result in a reduction of dropout rate. Under the program, remedial education in Hindi, English, Mathematics and EVS and counseling support by providing a certified counselor, digital learning, and extracurricular activities such as sports, recreational, art and craft will be conducted. Additionally, channelization of resources to train teachers, infrastructural improvement in Computer lab and monthly maintenance of sanitation facilities will be undertaken to improve the learning experience for children.

"We are extremely excited about our association with the Delhi-based NGO Khushii, and look forward to being instrumental in providing remedial education to 2,800 children studying in the morning and evening shifts at Govt. Primary School of Harkesh Nagar. We strive to work holistically for underprivileged sections of the society as a part of our flagship program Newgen Digital Discovery Paathshala. This association is another opportunity to do our bit towards the education of underprivileged and community development," said Priyadarshini Nigam, Director, Newgen Software.

Aanchal Singh, Executive Director, KHUSHII expresses "Being a very progressive organization, Newgen Software Technologies Limited has a very keen interest in developing futures for the less privileged. This partnership is very strategic in nature, as it will enable a transformational journey for 2,800 children in Govt. Primary School of Harkesh Nager resulting in quality education at school and promising future goals and career aspirations."
