KHUSHII - Kinship for Humanitarian, Social and Holistic Intervention in India
To empower children from poor and marginalised communities leading to improved life of dignity through education
Work and Achievements
Recent survey analyses have shown that learning levels in Government run primary schools have remained consistently low. More alarming is the fact that almost half the children drop out after 8 years of elementary education, without acquiring minimum acceptable foundation skills. Poor classroom processes has been identified as a major reason for the low learning outcomes. Without adequate facilities to improve learning, children, especially those who have entered first time in a formal school, will lag behind and result in low motivation to come to school
KHUSHII is committed to address these challenges by promoting equity to enable children to learn, explore and achieve. Through its flagship programme ‘Shikshaantra Plus’, KHUSHII addresses the challenges of poor infrastructure, low Pupil-Teacher Ratio, low learning levels and drop-out in government schools. Its ‘Complete School Transformation’ model in collaboration with State Education departments aims to improve school through introduction of facilities to ensure improved attendance and reduced dropout rate. Under the programme, KHUSHII is providing remedial education and counselling support, digital learning, STEM education, and extracurricular activities such as sports, recreational, art and craft. Additionally, KHUSHII also channelize resources on the training of teachers, infrastructural improvements and upgradation of sanitation facilities for improved learning experience for children in school. At present, 32,000 students in 7 states of India are being catered daily through the programme.
