No child should be left behind
A foundation’s lessons to make village schools inclusive Most village schools are marked by slushy or bumpy roads and basic classrooms. For many children, the meal they get in school is the first of the day. And yet, after sitting through some sessions, you see what creating a space for learning means. A chain of counting beads helps a child solve a problem on the board. No counting on his fingers. Addition, done. Self-confidence, increased. Then the “Sampark Didi” swings into action.
FOR MUCH OF LAST YEAR, I was addicted to Serial, a blockbuster podcast based on a real-life murder mystery, by American journalist Sarah Koenig. Koenig’s voice has an honest, likeable quality that draws you in (and pushes you to binge-listen). I was one of Serial’s 80 million downloaders. Vineet Nayar, former CEO of HCL, was another. “Serial made me discover the immersive power of audio all over again,” Nayar tells me at the Noida office of Sampark Foundation, which he started with wife Anupama in 2005. I nod enthusiastically in agreement. But while my interest in Serial was entirely recreational, Nayar drew inspiration from it to fuel his post-HCL calling: improving India’s decrepit government-run primary schools.

"The kids take a lot of interest when we use these things. They don't see it as work then,' says Revati Mathyal, a teacher in a northern India school who's working with a class of 16 students in a mix of grades one through five. "When we use traditional methods of teaching math it takes time for them to understand. This is all so colorful and attractive.'
