We work with local parents to understand the greatest needs and the best area to open a school. Rather than building from scratch, we work with surveyors to source an existing building which matches the needs of our students.
After locating our building, we get to work on renovations to get the building ready for students and teachers. The school is decorated in the bright Effect.org colors, filled with interactive learning materials and finishing touches to make our schools a home away from home. We install security cameras and internet connection to ensure each school's safety and connectivity.
We work closely with locals and drive community engagement to enroll students. Parents of current students play a key role in spreading the word of an affordable private school in their area. For a low fee of $14 per month, our children are admitted and begin preparations to start their quality education!
With a special focus on using our own technology and our skills-based curricula, our teachers take a multi-week training course to prepare them to run an effective classroom. To ensure teachers are supported, they continue bimonthly training with on-site managers. Lesson plans, teacher training, and curriculum are all developed in-house at our headquarters in New Delhi, India.
We developed our own Student Information System for Effect Schools. Each teacher uses the app to teach lesson plans and record student exam performance and class attendance. This system allows us to ensure the quality of our curriculum, and share student progress with our supporters.
Our Effect School is ready! At this point as many as 300 children begin learning. Effect.org further invests in each school to ensure quality, training, lesson plans and student improvement.
