Satya Bharti School Program

West Bengal

In 2011, Bharti Foundation launched six Satya Bharti Schools in the villages of Amaritakunda, Chanak, Chargachi, Patkeldanga, Noapara and Dhalsa in Murshidabad district of West Bengal. Subsequently, it added four more schools in Amodpur, Bundaidanga, Dhamua, and Kanidighi villages, taking the total count to 10 schools.

Today, more than 1,100 students (60% girl children) are experiencing the joy of learning in these schools. Most of the children enrolled in these schools are first generational learners. These children are not only receiving quality education, but also nutritious mid-day meals, exposure to a range of co-curricular activities, and much more.

The Satya Bharti Schools in West Bengal have been built incorporating the ‘Building As Learning Aid’ (BALA) technique. As per this technique, walls, windows and other structures of the school building are painted/designed in the form of calendar month, school map, height charts, abacus grill, mathematics tables, distance markers, etc. It ensured that with multiple exposures to the built-in teaching learning aids in the school buildings, children remember them in the long run.

Teachers in the schools make regular use of multi-media content and innovative teaching-learning aids and kits to facilitate effective learning for children. The curriculum in the schools also integrates community campaigns to develop life skills as well as critical and creative thinking among the children.
