  Goals

 

 

Same as Eureka project. The specific program components funded in the proposal are : • Tamil Reading Skills Improvement: The focus will be to get all primary school children to start reading fluently. This will be done in schools with teachers. • Science Quality Improvement: Here the focus is getting middle school children to do science experiments. Most of them have not even done one experiment till now. Doing and thinking about these visually exciting experiments will also spark off the children’s interest in science. • Village Libraries: We will be starting libraries in villages to build up community resources for learning. Apart from helping children access books and creating a reading habit in children, this component also builds up community participation and interest in the education process.
