In a landmark development that signifies a continued commitment to enriching the educational landscape, Vibha, a dynamic volunteer-driven nonprofit dedicated to enhancing educational access for underprivileged children, proudly announces the renewal of its Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Government of Andhra Pradesh. This renewed partnership, in conjunction with Samagra Shiksha Abhiyan and LeapForWord, Making India English Literate, is poised to revolutionize English literacy across several districts in Andhra Pradesh over the next three years.
Expanding Horizons: Impacting Thousands of Lives
Vibha’s impactful English Literacy Program, aimed at fostering foundational English skills among children, is set to unfold across seven districts: ASR, NTR, Krishna, Guntur, Nellore, Tirupati, and Annamayya. With an ambitious vision to equip government teachers with effective English teaching methodologies, this program is slated to make a profound difference in the lives of a staggering 90,000 students enrolled in grades 2 to 5 across 10,935 government schools.
Building on Success: A Testament to Progress
Building on the resounding success achieved in the preceding year, the Andhra Pradesh Government, recognizing Vibha and LeapForWord’s expertise, has extended the program’s reach to encompass five new districts. This expansion aligns seamlessly with the ongoing Foundational English programs in the ASR and NTR districts, amplifying the scope and impact of this transformative initiative.
A Comprehensive Approach: Nurturing English Proficiency
Under the renewed MoU, Vibha will work in tandem with the Government of Andhra Pradesh to facilitate an extensive range of initiatives aimed at enhancing English language skills. These initiatives encompass comprehensive teacher training, content sharing, continual support through digital platforms, innovative programs like the Word Power Championship, establishment of school libraries, assessments, and the distribution of essential workbooks for both students and teachers.
A History of Success: Evolution and Expansion
The trajectory of this program’s success is marked by steady growth and impactful milestones. From its inception in 2021, when Vibha and LeapForWord introduced the Foundational English Program in the Paderu division of Visakhapatnam district, to the subsequent expansion in 2022-23, encompassing 11 mandals in Paderu Division and 17 Mandals in the NTR district, the journey has been one of consistent progress.
Uplifting Education, Transforming Lives
Vibha’s continued partnership with the Government of Andhra Pradesh, Samagra Shiksha Abhiyan, and LeapForWord underscores a collective commitment to elevate educational standards and transform the lives of children in underserved communities. The expansion of the Foundational English Program across these rural districts is a testament to Vibha’s unwavering dedication to nurturing foundational literacy and numeracy (FLN) programs in public schools.
