Inspite of the number of students in schools in Rural Bihar being high, the quality of education remains poor. A class 5 student is not able to read properly and the only motivation for him to come to school remains the mid day meals. Lack of interest in education also results in drop out from schools.
The need of the hour thus is to make attending schools fun, and at the same time impart an education that goes beyond the traditional rote learning and create avenues for creative, experiential and collaborative learning, to improve the quality of education and motivation levels.
The project functions in the Kosi region of Bihar comprising of the districts of Saharsa, Madhepura, Khagaria, Supaul. These are also amongst the most backward districts in Bihar. The project is been running since the summer of 2008.
