IFIE's Community Classes
IFIE's Community Classes shine as a testament to Sanchetana's commitment to nurturing community leaders. Adolescent leaders orchestrate these unique classes in slums for younger children, setting them apart in two significant ways. Firstly, they are led by volunteers from within the slum itself, demonstrating a genuine dedication. Secondly, these classes redefine education with a creative approach - "no blackboard, no punishment!" Instead, marbles, stones, and everyday materials foster engaging learning experiences right in their homes. In the past year, 40 leaders conducted 25 community classes, touching the lives of over 1000 children. This outreach continues to grow. Sanchetana plays a pivotal role in training these leaders, enabling them to lead various activities. From science to creative writing, they impart diverse knowledge to young learners. Once equipped, these leaders independently guide children through similar sessions, strengthening the community's educational fabric. Notably, adolescent leaders also spearhead initiatives like Summer Camp, Teacher’s Day, Children’s Day, and Parents' Meetings. Experience the power of leadership-driven education, fueling transformation within slum communities, and inspiring a brighter future.
