For over three decades, Eklavya has been working towards the goal of social change through meaningful education in the school system in India.

Setup in 1982 to implement the landmark Hoshangabad Science Teaching Programme (HSTP), then being jointly run by the state government and two voluntary organisations, Kishore Bharati and Friends Rural Centre, Eklavya went on to develop and implement the innovative Social Science Teaching Programme and the Primary Education Programme (PRASHIKA) in the government schools of Madhya Pradesh. More recently, Eklavya worked with the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) in developing the National Curriculum Framework (NCF) 2005 and the syllabuses and textbooks based on the NCF.

Eklavya continues to actively seed and develop academic programmes for curricular change in elementary education, at the micro level, and also conducts work in curricular research and material development in language and math in the primary stages and science and social sciences in the high school stages. This work feeds into Eklavya’s ongoing engagement with school education system in various States on curriculum and textbook development and teacher professional development and capacity building of various educational functionaries in the governmental and non-governmental space.

Our work and partnership

Eklavya and Wipro have been associated with each other for many years. Some of the earlier associations have been on whole school transformation projects in a few urban schools, running the library program in Bhopal etc. Our most recent association has been in the area of multilingual education.

India has a high degree of languistic diversity. However, in many States, in urban and rural areas, the home language of children is neither the school language nor used as a resource to teach the school language. The culture of children is also not reflected in the classroom. This creates a great barrier to the learning of the school language and of English, and in understanding what is taught in school. Eklavya’s multilingual programme intends to develop language pedagogy which uses children’s own histories and languages as resources.

Eklavya has been working on the multilingual education program in Bhopal since 2012. A team was setup and their capacity built to work on multilingual education in collaboration with schools and communities to work with. An essential part of this research is to find ways in which Hindi, English and children’s Home Language can be nurtured in a way in which they support each other. While there were challenges in initiating work with the schools, Eklavya focussed on setting up community centres to develop a curriculum and pedagogy for multilingual education.

Based on the work done with various age groups of children in the community centres, the current focus is to develop a framework for urban based multilingual pedagogy for three age groups or competency levels of children ( (Pre-readers – Ages 5-8, Beginning/transitionary readers and writers – Ages 8-12, Fluent readers – Ages 12-15).
