(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) Children in six indian states will benefit from programmes aimed at enhancing literacy and numeracy skills as well as early childhood education in india.

more than one million children in india will benefit from a new collaboration between dubai cares and pratham education foundation in india. children in six indian states will benefit from programmes aimed at enhancing literacy and numeracy skills as well as early childhood education in india. the partnership will assist local communities by strengthening programmes focused on three core issues — enhancing the learning levels of beneficiaries in government schools across rural areas providing school readiness among children in grades 1 and 2 as well as supporting the central resource group. the programme is expected to benefit over 1 million children over the span of three years.

speaking on the partnership with pratham tariq al gurg chief executive officer of dubai cares said: “we lay a lot of emphasis on monitoring evaluation and learning so this programme will also serve as a demonstration site to generate evidence and showcase the best practice that can be replicated across the country to enhance the educational support system on a national level.”

the partnership will aim to reverse the school dropout rates and low learning levels prevalent in the country. india is one of 135 nations to make education a “fundamental right” with the right to education act (rte) in effect around the country.

however despite having achieved the target for universal primary education set under the millennium development goal (mdg) 5 the indian educational system has been handicapped by inadequate teacher qualification and support low teacher motivation high absenteeism flawed teaching methodology and linguistic diversity leading to a lack of incentives for students to continue in school.

under the partnership dubai cares has earmarked three proagrammes that will reach a total of 1053954 direct beneficiaries. the read india iii programme will boost the skill levels in language and math for government school students in rural areas through an intense short-term teaching-learning programme that will be repeated several times in the same village or school during the year.

the programme will be delivered to 150000 villages in 150 blocks across the country and will demonstrate the positive effects of short bursts of quality training.

the urban early childhood education programme prepares primary-age children for school through physical language cognitive and emotional readiness. it also promotes early literacy and numeracy amongst children in grades 1 and 2 through community classes held in homes or common community facilities.

with its emphasis on innovation and development dubai cares will also support the central resource group that will focus on four key functions — content creation research and development training and advocacy. the group’s work will allow dubai cares to fine-tune as well as elevate the standards of existing interventions to deliver a stronger content training and analyses.

dubai cares has so far reached over 8 million children in 31 developing countries. the organisation’s programmatic interventions comprise building and renovating schools and classrooms improving water sanitation and hygiene in schools providing school feeding deworming activities early childhood education as well as teacher training curriculum development literacy and numeracy.
