Welcome to our sixth edition of newsletter. As ever , It will be our endeavor to use this as our channel (minimally but optimally) for letting you know what's happening at our end without overloading you with too much information.
In this edition, we look at steps we have taken to optimize our resources (teachers) and ensure that all our children have a strong after-school-support system in place as they resume their schools. Though physical classes are yet to open, we do see a shimmer of light that things may get back from "virtual" to "real" soon.
Meanwhile we hope you and your loved ones are safe and comfortable. We are sure you all have the well wishes of our 200+ families that you have been supporting.
Here is a glimpse into other developments that's happening at our end. We have broken updates into 4 quadrants - Operations, Partnerships, People and You - Our well-wishers
Operations - SOF's Rural Updates
We now have 130 students ,18 volunteers and 1 full-time Program Coordinator working with us for our Rural Unit. We finished with our "Mentor Orientation" and "Student-Parents Orientation Session" and will be starting our program in Aug 2021. The program covers 6 themes - Comp Literacy, Communicative English, Career Awareness, Job Readiness, Personality Development, and Talent Showcases.
Partnership - Petimus Educational Consultants
We are happy to announce our partnership with Petimus Educational Consultants who are guiding us on several aspects including - Staff Training, Lesson Plans and Pedagogy, Assessments and much more. Thank you Arun Patrick and Padmini Rajendra for joining our mission!
People - Meet our Staff
Meet Rajagopal G who takes care of our Kadugudi unit. A student of Final Year Engineering himself, he is our youngest and the blue-eyed staff of SOF. With Covid allowing him to "study-from-home", one of the first thing he did was to use the opportunity to serve the kids! He loves Cars and mobility and is already working on plans of starting up his own soon.
