Ford India in association with Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) has launched an educational project to improve the educational infrastructure and quality of education of government-aided schools in Tamil Nadu.
The programme, launched to mark the Children's day, has been evolved with a holistic approach of intervention at three levels amongst parents, teachers and students. For this project, CII has played an imperative role in facilitating BODHI Consultants, Training and Counseling center as the knowledge partner. The project would provide education, guidance and counseling to children at an important stage of their life with the help of both parents and teachers. For students, the module aims at motivation towards studies, holistic development by renowned trainers and successful people from corporate and public circuits, facilitating students to develop skills such as memory, reading, writing and concentration skills. For teachers in the government-aided schools, the project would provide training through workshops. Apart from educating parents on psychological impact of the primary system on the growth and development of the child, the programme would enlighten them on their roles and responsibilities as parents, the impact of education on the child's future and career opportunities and their role in career planning.
