LIFE Trust have partnered with ECA (Early Childhood Association) to further train the Balwadi teachers, enhancing their teaching skills, and communication so that they can in turn provide quality education to the Balwadi children in MCGM MPS schools. The training shall be conducted every month.
The training aims to enhance the grasping power of the children, reading and writing skills, making them more creative and exposing them to the concept of thinking-out-of-the-box. It focuses on psychological development of the children not only through the syllabus but also through games and fun activities.
