Bringing lessons to life across India
Education can help lift people out of poverty. It’s why teachers in rural India, where one in three students live on less than $1 a day, dedicate their lives to sharing the knowledge that can builds success. But without resources or training, it’s difficult to provide engaging and effective teaching. Now there is hope, and Deo Sudan Singh is proof.
Deo worked hard to engage his class but was met with uncomprehending stares. One day, another teacher shared their TESS-India booklets (Teacher Education and School-based Support in India), provided free by The Open University, packed with science experiments. Armed with a stick and its shadow, Deo demonstrated the wonders of light in the universe: “I saw the joy on students’ faces. They were keen to learn.”
We can share the joy of learning with more pupils like Deo’s. With your help, we can develop many new booklets in more topics and more languages to deliver thousands of life-changing lessons. One third of the world’s poor live in India, and we can empower them to escape the cycle of poverty.
