Isha Vidhya is currently carrying out critical interventions in 121 rural Government schools in the districts of Thiruvallur, Tirupur, Coimbatore, Salem, Kanchipuram and Villupuram in Tamil Nadu, impacting 30,000 students and 450 teachers.

A similar program is on in 2770 government schools in Chittoor district of Andhra Pradesh, benefiting over 120,000 children and 6800 school teachers.

How We Do It

The Problem

The learnings from running Isha Vidhya, which cater to an identical profile of students at government schools, have led to effective methodologies that help government schools deal with some of their biggest issues. These include unmotivated teachers, large numbers of students lagging behind and poor English skills – all of which result in poor learning outcomes.

The Solution

Isha Vidhya provides the following trainings and programs to tackle these issues:

  • Happy Classroom Workshop for Teachers: An interactive workshop that helps teachers stay self-motivated. It provides tools for child-centric teaching, motivational tools for maintaining discipline, and making learning interactive and participative. The workshop helps teachers focus on learning outcomes and evaluate a child's level of understanding on a continuous basis.
  • Remedial Program: Developed by Isha Vidhya to accelerate the learning outcomes of children who are considerably behind their levels and allow them to get mainstreamed within a year or two.
  • Special English Program: A multi-sensory program that teaches language the natural way and greatly enhances English speaking, reading and comprehension capabilities within 2 to 3 years.
  • Programs Beyond Curriculum: In Tamil Nadu, yoga, sports, health awareness, environmental awareness and career guidance programs are also implemented in high schools.
