Saarthi Education, a Delhi-based non-profit is helping teaching women with children, so they can help their kids with studies at home.A lot of initiatives aimed at improving learning outcomes for children often neglect parents who are the major stakeholders. This is particularly the case when dealing with students from financially-challenged households.However, one major concern is that in many of these households, even though the parents appreciate and understand the need for good education, they often lack the resources, knowledge and capacity to engage effectively with their children’s education.Saarthi is working wih around 6,000 families across seven low-income communities in Delhi across areas including Mithapur, Jaitpur, Tughlakabad, Sangam Vihar, Dakshinpuri, Madangir and Khanpur.#GoodNews: Schools Trying to Make Up for Academic Losses in J&KTheir primary focus is to improve the quantity and quality of a parent's involvement in a child's academic progress.They work with households with an annual income ranging between Rs 1.5 lakh-2.5 lakh per annum.Saarthi was founded in 2017, by Ankit Arora, an engineering graduate in Delhi. Arora gave up his lucrative career to teach young children in the slums of Faridabad, Haryana along with his college friends.One of Saarthi's success stories is Ruchi Maurya, mother of a five-year-old, a homemaker and resident of Ekta Vihar, Mithapur, Delhi.While speaking to The Better India, she said, "The outcome has been really good for both myself and my child. Earlier, I had concerns about how I could teach my child because I didn’t know any techniques. The activity kit Saarthi gives us has very simple material that we can teach our children with, and easy instructions as well. Once I got the hang of it, I could even help my child with his homework from school."Arora said various studies have established a correlation between parent involvement and a child's life-long career achievement outcome.(With inputs from The Better India)#GoodNews: Rural BPO Centres in Bihar Help Women Get More Jobs We'll get through this!
