"I wanted my son to become a pilot. All our dreams have been crushed”
"I miss my school, my friends, my teachers. I want it all that back”
Such are the pleas of thousands of refugee children and their parents who had to leave their home country and settle in the land unknown to them. Recognizing the need to bring about a transformation in the sphere of refugee children’s education, we initiated Project Taaleem.
Taaleem is a community-driven model to revolutionize the primary education sphere for the refugee community. And how do we do that? By using an Active Story Based Curriculum designed specifically for the community that also leverages the latest innovations in learning.
We believe refugee children are the future assets of the country, and we want to provide them the steppingstones they need. Storytelling takes the centre stage in our solution, which is fundamental to Early Childhood Development. It is an excellent vehicle for promoting and enhancing literacy and language development within families.
Every idea starts with a problem. Ours was: how to provide education to the refugee children, where they could move anytime. It turns out there was a simple solution: Adopting a community-based model for which the teacher is chosen from the community and is provided with the requisite training. We follow a 5-step process in our model:
We carry out surveys to know about the children’s leaning ability.
We identify an entrepreneur from the community having the requisite qualifications.
Centre Establishment & Mobilisation
Joining hands with Community Based Organisations, we establish Taaleem centres and make people aware about it.
Partnering with Katha, we develop a curriculum specifically designed to cater the needs of refugee children which follows an active Story based model.
Teachers undergo training to get familiarized with the curriculum and the manner in which it has to be taught to the children .
We began our journey in the year 2018 with 80 students and one centre in Shaheen Bagh. Fast-forward to 2021, we have in total 8 centers across Delhi NCR and 660 students enrolled under our project. What started as an initiative to transform refugee education has now become a harbinger of hope for communities all across the country.
“Tell me and I forget, Teach me and I remember Involve me and I learn.”
At Taaleem, our primary focus is to capture our students’ imagination and manifest their creativity by making education simpler, more interactive and engaging for them.
So as to accomplish this, we follow an Active Story Based Learning (ASBL) model designed by us in association with our knowledge partner Katha.
Stories are every child’s very first tryst with education and concepts explained through stories are ones which get imprinted in one’s mind the quickest.
Hence, this approach was strategically adopted by us as this curriculum trains students in Language, Arithmetic and Science through the use of stories that are very comprehendible and instantly grab their attention.
Our mission is to ensure that every child is equipped mentally, emotionally, socially and spiritually for life. We provide a quality pre-school education and has been operating for the past 25 years.
- Professional medical care for all kids included.
- High qualified teachers with licenses.
- Fresh and tasty food in canteen.
We believe that salvation is only possible in this life when a person is able to make a volitional and intelligent decision to receive Christ as Saviour. We believe that there is no second chance after death.
