Therefore, strengthening teaching-learning for developing early literacy skills among students is crucial. The Language and Learning Foundation (LLF) was formed in 2015 with the aim of developing and implementing a variety of professional development opportunities for teachers, teacher educators and other stakeholders in the area of early grade student learning with a specific focus on language and literacy.
They provide training to school teachers, Cluster Resource Coordinators (CRC), Block Resource Coordinators (BRC), and other people working at various levels in the education system in Early Language and Literacy (ELL) and Multilingual Education (MLE). They teach tribal children using their home language and thereby facilitating their learning process in other languages.LLF is in its second year of intervention in 7 districts of Haryana while in its first year of intervention in 3 districts of Chattisgarh. The overall time-period of intervention is 5 years across respective states where the in kind contribution from the state government increases gradually.
