SCOPE - STRENGTHENING COMMUNITIES FOR PRE- SCHOOL EDUCATION

SCOPE is strengthening communities for Universal Preprimary Education.
This project was started for providing support to Anganwadi teachers and Helpers to improve the quality of preprimary education in Anganwadi for the children in the age group 3-6 years. This is an initiative of Forbes Marshall Company –social welfare group. The work with Anganwadi teachers went on well for 3 years in 30 Anganwadis .However it had to be discontinued. Now similar work is being carried out in the communities independently through this project. The program can be divided into 3 parts.

The main objectives of SCOPE are

  • Home lending Library in communities: Teachers go in the communities and distribute books to children.They also conduct reading and storytelling sessions.
  • Support classes: The children in communities who are admitted in first standard need some educational support, so that they do not drop out of schools. These classes are run with a view to support these children in their school studies. These classes are conducted in the first term i.e. June to October every year.
  • Bridge classes:The children who will be going in first standard also need some pre-school preparation. Through Bridge classes this need of the community children is satisfied. These classes are conducted in the second term of the academic year i.e. November to March every year.

Annually around 600 children get the benefit of this library, whereas 250 to 300 children get benefit of support and bridge classes, in this SCOPE project.
