  Summary

 

 

The concept of child growth center is derived from the need for an integrated approach towards building bases for children, rather than having just schools. Thus, the child growth centers will be extended centers for education, entertainment, moral development, physical development and value building among young children on local language. The centers will adopt innovative methods of teaching like the barefoot education that will involve utilizing local resources and materials to teach children, ensuring that they learn more from the nature and surroundings than from books and notes. The education teaches them about ways of life and functional importance of numbers, alphabets etc, inculcating a sense of curiosity and adventure to learn among young minds. Moral, physical and cultural development will be given equal importance like their physical growth. The children will be subject to routine health check up, growth monitoring and inputs to develop their cultural orientation. Value education will be the method of teaching. All the selected teachers will undergo rigorous training on the new methods under well known resource persons in the field of education and child growth. The project will also provide the basic education materials to the centers and learning materials to children. Low cost community halls that are multi purpose in nature were constructed during the first year of the project.
