Anubha commented on Mumbai's Free Learning Centers Bridge the Gap

Dear Nicole thank you for your kind comment and your interest in our program. Volunteer training consists of a combination of instructions on how to approach teaching literary objectives as well as understanding child behaviour. I'm happy to share with you recordings of some sessions we are planning in the near future.
Attendance and other issues related to conduct are achieved by tracking behaviour including attendance and making children accountable. We do a lot of outing for the kids but they have to earn their privilege for being a part of these...We have found this to be an effective means to children understanding consequences as well.

I am happy to answer any questions you may have. You can write to me at or we could do a Skype meeting. Let me know. My I'd is anubha.sharma91


Anubha commented on Mumbai's Free Learning Centers Bridge the Gap

here are my thoughts on maintaining quality. We plan to provide quality inputs, insight and tools to enable volunteers to do a good job. Constant sharing of best practices in the group sets standards that everyone follows or betters, since this is a group activity there is an automatic check and people are less likely to cut corners as they take joint responsibility of delivering the best to the children.this pledge is taken time and again. At this point we regularly visit centers and interact with volunteers and children but at a particular scale it will become impossible. We will have to relay on assessment tools as well as o volunteer and children stories and feedback for ground level information. I would be glad to know if you have suggestions.
