Under the student enrichment project, we aim to accelerate and enhance the development of students across the board.
Child development is a sensitive stage that can be influenced by many factors. We ensure that only a positive impact is left on the students for the rest of their lives, by focusing on aspects that go beyond just academic learning.
While academic learning is boosted through changes in instruction methods and educational services, holistic development is achieved by building opportunities for maximizing their potential outside the classroom.
Resources are invested in encouraging students to develop new interests and build skills that can create ripples of impact in the world at large.
The aims of this project are achieved through:
Given the pervasiveness of under-resourced schools in India, with some lacking even basic facilities like teachers and digital tools, Quess Foundation has taken the initiative to develop programmes such as TABLAB and computer learning.
we give a leg up to the meritorious students of government schools. By giving them the resources to complete their education at the post-graduate level, we encourage undisrupted, equal participation in the learning process regardless of differences in backgrounds.
Our scholarships are further supplemented with a one-on-one mentoring program that builds resources for students even outside the monetary purview. We empower youth with the tools of confidence and self-reliance as well as professional guidance, evaluation, and orientation.
A child’s right to education is incomplete without access to appropriate educational supplies. Exercise books, textbooks, notebooks, and school bags are all essential needs for a student. Quess foundation thus, steps in to make sure that every single child seeking education has access to these supplies.
Helping students is a process that requires people to view things from a variety of perspectives. It’s not just about providing resources and tools that can make education accessible, but also about the way it is delivered. So besides equipping students with the educational necessities they need to succeed in their learning process, Quess Foundation supports teachers and children through adaptive instruction.
During the pandemic, when the schools shut down and learning was interrupted, millions of children faced a gap in their learning and a loss of education they had already acquired.
From mental health and concentration to social skills and confidence, multiple issues arose in the wake of the nation-wide lockdown. Children from economically disadvantaged sections of society suffered especially during the pandemic. Those who were without any digital tools, specifically students from government schools, completely lost touch with any online education initiatives that may have been undertaken during the period.
Through the foundation’s early childhood learning program, we partner with teachers and parents to promote holistic learning experiences for children in the 3-6-year age bracket. Aligning with preschool learning, this program gives much-needed attention to a critical period in a child’s life.
Leaders across the globe have been advocating for the relevance of soft skills in life and work for a long time. Emotional quotient is now considered as critical, if not more, a defining leadership metric as IQ. In the coming years, such mind-set shifts are going to become only more prevalent in the professional world.
Quess Foundation sees the need of integrating these skills into the students’ learning paths from the get-go. The Life Skills Project is, thus, a course devised specifically to equip the young with skills like self-awareness, empathy, critical thinking, decision-making, problem-solving, effective communication, and maintaining healthy interpersonal relationships.
After the course had been implemented, the impact of life skill training led to a positive student behavioural change across their interactions with family, friends, and teachers. We found that with life skill classes, students were better placed for achieving academic success, and positive mental health, social health, and reproductive health. Personal hygiene was another important factor where we saw significant improvement.
