FEEL<br />T here are many problems in India and when we see our community under the microscope, we found first the quality learning and second the English medium learning which are very much neglected. <br />
FINDING<br />To understand the problem better in the society , we went out to meet the people .<br /><ul><li> Asking them what is the education status and following this what is their view on english medium learning.
They explain what is the meaning of education to their children specially if it is the english medium.
One thing that was clear that almost all parents want to send the children at school .
Very few have an idea about english medium learning and those who have they think that it is privilege of rich people.</li></li></ul><li>IMAGINE<br />The team brainstorm about how to make the people aware of the english medium learning .<br />During that time many ideas generated like:<br />Initiate one awareness camp with the parents in the community.<br />Calling some of the parents from the community at school and show them a movie which tells about learning in english.<br />Invest time in the community with the children and people through work shop where we would share the knowledge and empathy.<br />Collect some books or buy some books from fund raising and distributed among children.<br />
Why workshop?<br /><ul><li>We wanted to feel the real problem with real people and to taste this, workshop is the best idea that came up.
Work shop would help us to reach to all those children who wish to have an opportunity but deprived due to socio-economic cause.
We would share the dreams as well with this children so they can believe in “I Can”.</li></li></ul><li>DO<br />We went to a community in pune approximately 250 families of average monthly household income is less than INR 1000.<br />We meet the people and with their help conduct workshop.<br />
TEACHING<br />Nearly 45 children of the age group 6-12 were present at the workshop.<br />We teach them english, check the understanding.<br />We do mathematics with the help of english numbers rather than marathi numbers.<br />
REWARD<br />After the workshop we rewarded the students with old cloths which we had collected as a donation.<br />
CHANGE IS POSSIBLE<br />We feel the change in us.<br />This change is the inner transformation.<br />The smile and the eager eyes of every child make us believe in “I” .<br />
