The foundation is running robotics classes in affiliation with Playto Robotics in two villages in Maharashtra, which initially posed a challenge for the students who were new to the subject. However, with time and practice, the students are now enjoying the classes and are eager to participate in them. The students are also learning new things about robotics, and this has led to an increase in their technical knowledge. The classes are providing an opportunity for students to gain exposure to the field of robotics and develop an interest in it. This will help them in their future studies and careers, especially in the field of science and technology. Overall, the foundation is contributing to the growth and development of the students by providing them with opportunities to enhance their knowledge and skills in robotics.
From time to time, EArtH foundation does a review to make sure we are making progress towards accomplishing our mission. A review meeting was held with the co-founder, director, co-coordinators, volunteers, PET and Dance master, and report writer. The meeting started with interviews of teachers and checking the skills books and handwriting sheets of students. The co-founder checked with parents if volunteers were visiting them and if students were improving in their studies. The co-founder also inspected the booklets of volunteers, coordinators, dance master, and PET. Next month’s activities were discussed, and everyone shared their views.
The foundation organized a self-government day program for pre-primary schools in Jakkapur, Thimmapur, and Arepilli villages. The program gave students an opportunity to become a teacher and understand their feelings and emotions. Additionally, the foundation initiated a food festival to encourage students to eat natural food rich in vitamins and minerals. The students performed activities to explain the differences between carbohydrates, proteins, and minerals and prepared dishes to demonstrate the benefits of natural food, which supports heart health and reduces the risk of heart disease.
Schools celebrated the holi festival with great joy. It is a colorful festival celebrated in India and other countries. People burn the Holika idol and daub colors at each other. It is one of the most significant festivals in India celebrated in March every year. Students, staff members, principal, and volunteers gathered at one place in the school and celebrated the festival with colors.
The foundation provides dance and PET activities for students in school. The dance master teaches basic dance order, and students show good coordination. PET activities include practicing different games, both indoors and outdoors. Playing games enhances children’s skills and develops their challenging spirits. The foundation aims to provide good education and communication skills to each student, helping them to develop and improve their skills. Here are some of the pictures in Telangana, Andhra Pradesh and Maharashtra.
Regular communication between parents and teachers regarding their children’s academic progress is a key component of ensuring their success in school. The open dialogue not only allows for identifying areas of strength and weakness but also helps parents understand the progress of their children in a much more vivid way.
Recently, during a parent-teacher meeting, the discussion revolved around parents’ eagerness to financially support school volunteers. The enthusiasm and willingness of the parents to give back to the school community were palpable. The parents recognize the valuable contribution of volunteers and appreciate their role in creating a conducive learning environment for their children.
The parents’ commitment to supporting the school community, both financially and otherwise, highlights their passion for their children’s education. They understand that creating a better learning environment for their children is a collective responsibility and are willing to go above and beyond to make that happen. Their willingness to alleviate some of the financial burdens on the school by contributing to the volunteer fund shows their dedication to the success of not just their own children, but also to the school community as a whole.
