Education Resource Centers:
There is a recognized
need in the community for primary education programs especially
because of the large number of children who are out-of-school.
Akshara felt that it was necessary to work with the community
and involve them in this process because the most critical
component of the sustainability model extends to galvanizing
the community into supporting the initiatives at the neighborhood
level. Ultimately the ownership and responsibility of improving
learning outcomes within the community lies within itself.
Education Resource Center was developed to address these needs
and acts as a hub of all Akshara's activities in the community.
All pre-school, in-school and out-of-school programs are conducted
at the community level through these centers.
Using this community centre as the focal
point, Akshara will continue to conduct various education
programs which will improve the learning levels amongst pre-school
and primary school children.
