A big thank you goes out to ace sculptor Mr. Arzan khambatta for making a difference and lending his time to bring out the artistic side of the children of the Zilla Parishad School in Borichapada, Sonave Village, Palghar.
The children had a wonderful time learning to make 3D Ganeshas and they excelled at it.
Special thanks goes out to Ms Bina Aziz for supporting this cause.
We would also like to thank Camlin Kokuyo for sponsoring the art materials.
Making education interesting through e-learning in rural India
The Gharatpada Zilla Parishad School in Sonave Village (Saphale, Palghar) was equipped with an e-learning device by the Nargis Dutt Foundation.
The children now have access to a creative way of learning through animation. This audio visual device explains each chapter of the state curriculum in the local language, making learning fun for the children.
The Nargis Dutt Foundation is setting up e-shalas across rural India.
There is much excitement in the little hamlet of Sonave village as approximately 200 children are learning the basics of computers. For many of them, this is their first experience on a real computer. Till now they had only seen it in a magazine.
During this one month free computer training program, they will be taught the nuances of Excel, Word, Power Point and Paint.
NDF envisions developing computer labs for the schools in Sonave. If you would like to support this initiative, do inbox us your details and we'll get in touch with you. NDF in association with Budhelia Foundation is very happy to be a part of their educational learning.
