What is it?

Operation Vasantha hopes for young and adult individuals who, due to socio-economic constraints, are forced to put earnings above learning.

Story

Summary

To address the problem of school dropouts and children related to their studies, Agastya Volunteers visit Community Centres in the evenings and provide remedial lessons. The children are also provided with interactive learning sessions through, singing, dancing, hands on experience on Science, Maths and Digital literacy which makes learning a great fun for them.

Challenge

The issue of dropouts is increasing in India, especially, in rural locations. The primary reason for this is chronic absenteeism, need to supplement family income through household chores or domestic work, school-related expenses are high, learning challenges of students, lack of individual teacher attention, all leading to poor learning levels in rural schools and eventually drop out from school.

Solution

The project "Operation Vasantha" is highly interactive and empowering initiative of Agastya, addressing the problem of school dropouts and children since 2009. The Agastya identified Volunteers (local Agastya trained college students) educate and inspire weaker students and school dropouts from their villages by providing remedial lessons after they complete their school and day's work. The project helps students and school dropouts to continue learning and join back to regular classes in school.

Long-Term Impact

The project will lead to trigger positive behavioral shifts that lead to curious, confident and humane individuals engaging creatively in their communities and eventually mainstreaming school drop outs. It will also elevate the educational status of children in every village and transform the level of empowerment in communities in future. Children will be able to tackle local societal problems and come up with solutions.
