Story of Change

Slide 1

We are owners

Priyanshi, Kanak, and Anjali, as Nipun Champions, demonstrated remarkable leadership, initiating peer learning sessions to support Learners (Lower class students) in grasping complex concepts. They efficiently managed school records, including the Mid-Day Meal and Attendance registers, ensuring accuracy. Addressing challenges within their learner groups, they collaborated with teachers for effective solutions. Beyond academics, they infused positivity by writing inspiring quotes on the blackboard daily, fostering a culture of optimism.
Their collective efforts not only catalysed a culture of learning and leadership but also inspired others to follow their example. These four students emerged as change-makers, exemplifying the transformative potential of Nipun Champions.

Success breeds success

Anurag, a 3rd-grade student, was struggling academically and hesitated to interact with others, often feeling shy. His class teacher decided to create a peer learning group with Tanish, a Nipun champion student from 5th grade, to help Anurag.

Tanish started teaching Anurag through peer learning, and soon, Anurag began to feel more comfortable and started interacting with other students. He has now become more confident, regularly attends school, and has even started helping others like Tanish. This initiative has not only improved Anurag's learning capacity but also boosted his confidence and life skill

Amrit Singh's Journey to Embracing Teamwork

Amrit Singh, a 5th-grade student at GES Harpalpur, initially struggled with the group dynamics in his classroom. When we first divided the students into groups, he was unhappy with his group because it had more girls than boys, and his friends were placed in other groups. Having never studied with girls before, he felt uncomfortable and out of place. This discomfort often led to conflicts within the group, necessitating frequent changes to his group assignments.

To address this, we regularly spoke with Amrit individually, encouraging him to take on a leadership role and work collaboratively with his group members. Over time, he began to adjust and realised the importance of maintaining harmony and focusing on his studies within the group.

By the end of the term, Amrit shared in our closing session that he had come to appreciate his group members, especially the girls who were initially a source of discomfort. He acknowledged that they were supportive and helpful when he needed them. Amrit expressed that he now enjoys working in a group and values the collaborative learning experience.
