"Learning humility, purity and simple-living from those who don't take too much from the earth...
Targetting the problems of hunger, disease and oppression that sadden their lives...
Inspiring in each other trust, confidence and support for one another..."

  Summary

 

 

http://wiki.aidindia.org/bayarea/index.php/Swanirvar_KKB

The Kishor Kishori Bahini (KKB) project is Swanirvars "attempt to develop an alternative rural secondary school curriculum." Secondary school curriculum in India has an "urban bias". It prepares students only to take exams and hope for admission to one of Indias hard-to-get-into institutions of higher learning. KKB seeks to develop an alternative curriculum that would teach students skills useful for life in Indias villages.

 
 

  Achievements

 

 

This is the first year of AID''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''s associaiton with the KKB project. Below are some achievements of the project in previous years. KKB is currently working in 20 Govt. high schools, targeting over 14,000 students. Students are being taught about various aspects of health, sanitation, nutrition, agriculture, workings of the local government etc. through hands-on and fun activities that are a part of the school curriculum. KKB also encourages and trains teachers to adopt similar methods.

 

  Goals

 

 

In the next 3 years (by 2012), the project hopes to achieve 1. At least 15 schools will be doing all the activities which will make learning real,fun, contextual , and relevant to the children’s lives and the whole schooling process will be radically redefined in crucial ways. 2. A network of innovative teachers will be formed, who will continuously reinforce each other and do advocacy work. 3. Parents and Local village govt ( Panchayats ) will get involved and some kind of school – panchayat synergy will develop. 4. This work will come to the attention of mass media , state and national level education authorities so that the lessons learnt can be used more widely and will provide some ideas to the ongoing reforms with school education in India.
