Vidhya Jyot Project

With financial support of GHCL Foundation, Sutrapada Swadeep has made an attempt to strengthen the foundation of the children through implementing field based program named Vidhya Jyot Project. Project aims to enhance the capacity of the service providers, improve the quality of education and overall growth and development of toddlers. The Vidhya Jyot Project approach is to create a simple, beautiful and an effective atmosphere for preschool education for the toddlers in collaboration with the local community. Due to these efforts, in upcoming years these Anganwadi centers will come out as model for pre-primary education. The strategy is to join hands with teachers and parents wherein both play an important role to make this happen.

Vidhya Jyot Project Works at all the three stages of the Education systems. It begins with the children at the Anganwadis, and thereafter with the children attending the Primary Schools and goes up to the High Schools children. The Project is currently implemented in 2 sites.
