Like many other schools in the rural parts of Madhya Pradesh, Government Schools in the districts of Dewas, Ujjain and Khandwa have majority of students coming from a humble economic background. With long period of continued illiteracy in the families, parents in this area don’t pay much heed to the education of their children, and this is a contributing factor in the poor education results here.

It was in this backdrop that Humana People to People India’s Kadam Program was launched here in 2016. The programme, which successfully concluded recently, was being implemented in 215 primary schools in Khandwa, Dewas and Ujjain districts of Madhya Pradesh, as a part of USAID’s READ Alliance initiative. The goal was to transform the lives of 1,000 primary school teachers and 30,600 children (15,600 girls and 15,000 boys) in Grades 1-5.

Following achievements were highlighted during the final assessment of the project, conducted jointly with the Primary School teachers:

- Improvement in basic reading and writing skills of children (of the age group 6-10 years)

- Improvement in teaching skills of primary grade teachers through training in child centric processes and TLM development

- Establishment of a sustainable learning support system for children at the local level by engaging and networking local stakeholders- teachers, parents and local communities

- Establishing institutional support systems for resource scarce Government primary schools through 3 local DIETs centres.

They showed strong improvement in performance from the baseline to endline, with almost all improvements statistically significant and little gender inequality. About 90% of children showed some basic letter identification skills. There was significant improvement in the basic vocabulary of children from baseline to endline. At the endline, almost 60% of children could read all words aloud, up from just a third at the baseline. At the endline, almost half of children could read all sentences aloud, almost double the proportion at the baseline.

We hope to continue to scale the Kadam Programme in order to transform learning and teaching methodologies in India. Do contact us if you wish to support this project and bring about a change in young lives.
