CEDE is planned as a 60 hrs program to be integrated with the school curriculum aided by the school authorities as well as specially appointed ‘change managers’ who coach the children during the week (Mon-Fri). Volunteer driven workshops on Saturdays, are meant for volunteers to not only spend quality time with the students but also impart knowledge through fun experiential activities.
The intervention comprises of various modules which focus on enhancing their communication and English language skills, confidence building, positive thinking, vocational and career guidance, sports as well as variety of art and culture workshops. In addition to these modules the intervention aims at experiential learning using various interactive media such as activities, role-plays, mind map and study techniques.
Our change managers and volunteers are essential external channels who help mould the personality of these children by exposing them to a variety of fun learning practices and by teaching them to think out of the box. Our constant endeavor is to empower children with adequate knowledge and skills so that they enter the real world with confidence.
