Satya Bharti Learning Centre Program was started in 2013, to identify and mainstream Out of School Children in the rural areas at the primary level, by offering remedial/bridge courses in collaboration with the government. As part of the program, children in remote villages, who had never been to school or dropped-out children were identified and admitted to government schools. Remedial education to these children was provided to bridge the learning gaps in order that they are absorbed in age-appropriate grades.
Effective partnerships were established with the governments of Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Jharkhand. Partnering with the ‘Humana People to People’ network in Madhya Pradesh added great value to the program. This program had been running in close collaboration with Educate a Child (EAC), a global program of the Education Above All Foundation; launched by Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser of Qatar. The objective was to catalyze efforts to significantly reduce the number of Out-of-School Children (OOSC) worldwide at the primary school level.
The learning centres proved to be of immense value. They offered continual support to the government in enrolling and retaining OOSC, within the government schools. The centres also engaged with the community and parents to enable their active participation in the program. The program targeted the major aspects of low attendance, lack of enrolment, discontinuation and measures were taken to tackle these issues and create a sustainable model of learning centres that could attract students. Despite these centres mainly being located in the remote rural areas, these became successful with the support of community partners and local youth as Education Volunteers who were trained intensively.
Satya Bharti Learning Centre Program has been integrated with the Satya Bharti Quality Support Program since the year 2018.

We are extremely thankful for the efforts made by Bharti Foundation through the Satya Bharti Learning Centre Program in mainstreaming 35 Out of School Children from our village. The program was carried out from January 2014 to May 2015 in our school. During this period, we experienced tremendous growth not only in the learning levels of the students but also in the teaching methodologies exercised by the Education Volunteers. We seek Bharti Foundation’s support in the near future as well, to help us provide continued quality education to all the children.

The Satya Bharti Learning Centre Program was introduced to us by the team of Bharti Foundation in July 2014. Initially we were uncertain about the implementation of the program in our region due to the rigid mindset of the local community. However, today we are amazed to see the positive outcomes of this intervention. Till date, 30 students have been mainstreamed through this program whereas 27 children have been brought back into the school. I appreciate the hard work and dedication of the Education Volunteers who are always engaged in providing innovative solutions to engage and involve both the students as well as community members.
