Shiksha's response to the Pandemic

Education

No or limited access to smart devices or internet facilities was our biggest challenge. We provided free tablets to students of Class 4 and above and tied up with the experts to conduct classes remotely.

Medical Aid

Primary health care and free vaccinations to our older students and alumni were provided via our sister non-profit, “Chikitsa”.

Free vaccines

Nutrition

Free supply of nutritious midday meals or free food rations was maintained throughout the lockdown and COVID-19 pandemic; our dedicated staff also free distributed hundreds of Kilos of basic essentials like rice, dal, cooking oil to the underprivileged.

masks & Hygiene kits

Masks and hygiene kits, including soap and sanitizers, were free distributed to Shiksha students and their families and others living nearby.

Class 8 Farewell

A get-together with a message

Graduating class 8 is just one small step for our students. We hope that they will go on to complete class 12 and may be even college.

The students, their parents and teachers got together to celebrate graduation from Shiksha Education Trust school. We counselled them about the importance of further education, with special mention of importance of educating the girls.

We also promised all assistance in helping them get admission into a new school. And in fact at any stage of life be it securing admission for higher studies, or vocational training after they complete schooling.
