There are 2.5 million child laborers in India, which is set to increase by 2022. To tackle this problem, the Indian government has set up many programs and initiatives for the welfare of children. However, the government needs to focus more on the education of children and the use of technology in this field as well. This can make the difference between success and failure.
There’s a growing need to provide quality education for India’s children. Most families can’t afford private schools. I had been working on my Master’s degree in public policy when I met a man named Arvind Gupta. He told me he was building a school in a poor area of Delhi, India.
He invited me to visit his school to see what they were doing and the results. I was blown away by what I saw and asked him how he could create a school that provided a high level of education without a lot of money.
He invited me to join him as a partner in a company that would help create schools in India. I agreed to partner with him and build a network of other organizations to allow him to accomplish this goal. We called this network of partners “The Children First Foundation.” Over the next few years, I worked with the organization to raise funds to build schools in India.
I also worked with the foundation to create the first online courses in English for students in India. In 2014, The Children First Foundation changed its name to The Abode Education Group and launched its first Abode School in India.
Importance of early childhood education
Understanding the impact of early childhood education, especially in underprivileged areas, is important. In India, nearly 70 percent of children are enrolled in government schools. These schools are often overcrowded, poorly equipped, and offer no teacher support. In addition to the physical and emotional needs of the children, teachers are often overworked and lack the resources to teach.
A study showed that children who attend early childhood education classes have better results in school. A child who starts school at five has a 90 percent chance of finishing secondary school, compared to a 60 percent chance for those who begin at nine.
In addition, the study found that children who receive a good education in primary school are more likely to finish secondary school than those who do not.
Research different schools in your area
Arvind had spent many years building and running a successful private school in the UK, but he wanted to do something different in India. He thought that starting a public school could help him build a network of contacts that would enable him to help even more children.
I’d been researching the best practices for education in India, and I knew I wanted to work on this project. Arvind and I visited the area and checked out a few schools. We went to a few schools and asked about what they were looking for in an employee. We had a lot to learn, so we started reading up on the best practices for teaching and learning.
We got back together and discussed our findings. We decided we didn’t want to do the same things as the existing schools. Instead, we tried to set up a unique school that offered something new. We decided that our students could learn through a series of activities called STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math).
We decided that our school would be designed for students from all walks of life, and we wanted it to be a place where students could feel safe and respected. We planned to teach all subjects in a fun way, and we’d also include various activities that would give our students a chance to learn about different topics. We worked closely with the local government to understand the best practices for a school in the area, and we’ve been building the school ever since.
Provide resources and materials for learning.
Arvind and his team have been working tirelessly for the past five years to create a school that can provide free, high-quality education to every child in the neighborhood.
They have done incredible work, but their biggest challenge is funding.
While many philanthropic organizations are interested in donating money to a school, they rarely present the materials needed to teach. This is where we came in. We decided to make a website that provides teachers and students with everything they need to learn.
The site includes teachers’ guides, videos, and practice questions. It also has a section called Projects. Each project is designed to help a teacher teach a certain subject in a specific way. A teacher who teaches English might consist of a project learning vocabulary, grammar, and spelling. This way, students and teachers can work together to find the best methods of teaching a particular subject.

Top Myths About Education
- The government should not spend money on education.
- Education is not important.
- Teachers are not qualified.
- Children should be made to study instead of teaching them.
- Most children are uninterested in learning.
Today, we have a chance to transform child education in India. We are a country with a huge population and a shortage of teachers. There are only around 6.4 million primary school teachers in India. This number is only 0.7% of the total working population. In addition, the number of school dropouts is growing by the day. As a result, students often have to repeat classes, which negatively impacts their prospects. The Government of India launched Pradhan Mantri Vidyalaya Chhatra Yojana (PMVCY) to tackle these issues in 2016. Under this scheme, schools are being built in rural areas and provided with equipment to create an environment conducive to learning.
