Continued Education Amidst School Closures

Round Table & Ladies Circle India Join Hands with Varthana to ensure continued education for over 1000 students.

As part of the Round Table India ( RTI) & Ladies Circle India (LCI) ongoing initiatives during this pandemic, Bangalore Round Table 07 ( BRT7), Bangalore Ladies Circle 19 ( BLC19) and Varthana, an education-focused NBFC which works with affordable private schools, have come together to support the education of over a thousand students in Bangalore. School closures amidst the pandemic have led to widespread loss of learning for students. To bridge this learning gap Varthana has devised a unique 'Unlock School' program that comprises concepts from both previous and current grades.

The Unlock School Program is an initiative to help children have access to education through the pandemic by providing printed workbooks featuring 'Bridge' content for English and Mathematics that aims to bring students gradually back to their current grade level from pre-pandemic levels. The books were disseminated across 4 schools in the city - Sree Vijaya Public School, GM Public School, St Anns, and VIPS Shikshana Samsthe. The total cost of this project is 1.1 Lakhs. Roundtable India will look to sponsor even more schools depending on the success of the program in these schools.

The program is designed in such a way that it does not require internet connectivity. It can be run by schools during school closures as well as to supplement curriculum once classes resume.
