The father of Manav Rachna, Founder Visionary Dr. O.P. Bhalla, had a dream of educating every child possible. Not only did he aim at academic excellence at Manav Rachna Educational Institutions, his focus was on ‘Manav ki Rachna’ in every sense of the word. Corporate Social Responsibility was an area that he worked at conscientiously. We feel his presence all around us and are sure that he is guiding and blessing us in all our endeavours. Under the able guidance of our Chief Patron, Manav Rachna Educational Institutions, Mrs. Satya Bhalla, we have taken it upon ourselves to take his dream forward. Dr. O.P Bhalla Foundation is working diligently in this direction. As an initiative started by the Foundation, the Aganwadi workers of Faridabad district are being given training in Manav Rachna Schools. The areas of training include….effective class conduct and management, fruitful utilization of the time spent by a child in Aganwadi through various activities involving overall development of the child and basic concept learning, preparing teaching aids, conducting parent –teacher meeting, self and students’ grooming, preparing anecdotal records and reports to name a few areas touched upon during the training sessions. So far, 5 batches of 20 Aganwadi workers and their supervisors attended the sessions.
The batches have also enthusiastically participated in various activities like role-play, story as well as rhyme sessions using proper voice modulation and intonation. They have also been given hands-on sessions about making simple and inexpensive teaching-aids and props that can be used effectively in the teaching-learning process.
It is heartening to see the high levels of energy and enthusiasm at these sessions as the Aanganwadi workers participate with whole hearted zeal. It is a matter of great honour for MRIS 21C to be able to make a difference towards this noble cause.
