Pratham Mysore

Innovation Series

In the process of teaching and facilitating children to learn, Pratham and its volunteers too continuously discover insights into better ways of teaching, identifying talented children and addressing child related learning issues.  The following new approaches and prioritizing subjects may be termed innovation: 

Learn India

While in the Read India model, the teacher teaches and hand holds the child continuously, in the LEARN INDIA model, the teacher facilitates and encourages children  to discover and learn on their own in groups.  The teacher intervenes periodically. During intervening gaps of teacher intervention, the children help each other to learn.  The children chosen for this methodology should have basic reading and writing abilities. Another significant component in this approach is the community support to monitor them during the gap periods.   A typical Learn India camp is held for a duration of twenty days in three segments and for a period of three hours.

Science Program

 is to stimulate scientific curiosity amongst the upper    primary / middle school children (Std. 6 – 8), while also enabling children to better understand concepts included in their curriculum. This is achieved by setting up science clubs in schools, conduct activity based science workshops and organize science fairs for the children. The broad framework for these workshops is in accordance with the state and National Curriculum Framework 2005. Accordingly, different topics are decided for each month e.g. Nature exploration, microscope, electricity, human body etc. In each session, the science staff conduct various experiments and activities with the help of science kits. Power point presentations, animations and videos are used to explain difficult concepts. Science exhibition cum fair is organized in which children demonstrate and explain experiments/ models/ charts developed in preceding science club sessions.


Pratham Prathibha Vikasan Karyakrama (PPVK)

aims to discover and nurture talent in children studying in government schools.  The initiative is to hand hold such children to bring them to the forefront of competitive excellence.

Chintana Chiguru
