Many primary students studying in the schools in Sayla Taluka lag behind their classmates in reading, writing and mathematics. 70 girl students studying in schools run by Raj Saubhag Ashram Sayla offered to tutor extra classes to help these students cope, taking the load off from the State Government. Over 2000 students from 65 schools in 35 villages are receiving extra coaching in this novel initiative where students have turned teachers. This is their way of giving back to the society – a valuable lesson they were taught in school.
The primary students that will receive extra coaching hail from Kashipara, Naliya, 4 schools in Sudamada, 9 primary schools from Sayla, Navaniya, Khitala among others.
The girl students who have benefitted from a hugely subsidised education in L M Vora College, have volunteered to take extra classes on the weekends. Along with the coaching classes, they are making progress and report cards to monitor the progress of each child.
Tejal Aal and Payal Katosana say: “It is our goal and earnest desire that every student reaches 100% of their potential, and they are able to read, write and calculate effortlessly.”
Applauding their initiative, Principal and Director of Prem ni Parab project, C K Vyas said: “This Prem ni Parab project has been instrumental in imparting quality education to over 25,000 students in the region. And now these college students are using their spare time to coach underperforming students and nurture their growth right from the beginning.”
