This collaboration will help in empowering the children from poor and marginalised communities with quality education, leading to improved quality of life.
Priyadarshini Nigam, Head – CSR of Newgen Software said, “At Newgen, we believe that education is the key to a successful future and improved quality of life which is why we have decided to eliminate the educational gaps in our society. We are extremely excited about our association with KHUSHII and look forward to being instrumental in changing the lives of our 800 beneficiaries from Govt. Higher Secondary School, Nandambakkam, Chennai, by providing remedial education.”
“Being a very progressive organisation, Newgen Software Technologies Limited has a very keen interest in shaping the future of the less privileged. This partnership is very strategic, as it will enable a transformational journey for 800 children in this school, resulting in quality education and promising future goals and career aspirations,” said Aanchal Singh, Executive Director of KHUSHII.
A stakeholder workshop was organised in the school to discuss the objective and vision of the programme. Stakeholders from the school (Headmaster and Teachers), representatives from Newgen and the partner NGO, participated in the workshop. Moving forward, these stakeholders will play a very crucial role in executing the programme and capturing the impact.
Under the programme, teachers in Spoken English (1), English Language (1) and Social Science (2) will be provided to the school as resources to strengthen the basics of the students. Counselling support by providing a certified counsellor, extracurricular activities and events will be organised. Additionally, channelisation of resources to train teachers and monthly maintenance of sanitation facilities will be undertaken to improve the learning experience for children. Thus, the partnership will address the challenges of low pupil-teacher ratio, low learning levels and drop-out in the intervention school.
