TOUCHING FIRST GENERATION LEARNERS OF THE KORKU TRIBE THROUGH ASHAKIRANCENTRES IN MP

3 days visit to AshaKiranCentres in Khandwa district of Madhya Pradesh was made from 30th Sept to 2nd October 2018. During the visit following centres were visited -



Observations: RILM's NGO partner TYCIA has been working with 3000 out of school children from 76 villages under Khalwa block of Khandwa district. Children are mostly from Korku Tribe and are first generation learners. Family members of these children are engaged in seasonal agriculture and as daily wage labourers in lean seasons. As parents are mostly illiterate, children do not get adequate support from parents or guardians to sustain their education.

TYCIA has engaged local youth as AshaKiran Teachers. Before engaging them as teachers, they are trained on conducting special training centres such that even children with special needs can be imparted the required knowledge.

Apart from running the AshaKiranCentres, TYCIA is actively involved with the community to sensitize them about education of their children. Community members are now gradually taking more care about the children's education as well as in making Schools more functional.
