Aawaaz: Taking education beyond the classroom
« on: July 14, 2015, 10:00:57 AM »

Aawaaz is the dream of Hindu college alumni Vibhor and Tarang They are promising free classes, juice and chilled water in the manifestos. And the voters are listening with rapt attention. But this is no election, but the process to elect monitors for a class picnic. And this miniature version of the electoral system has been deployed to introduce kids to ‘electoral malpractices’ such as blackmail and bribing. They also get to learn about how friends, village and caste-affinities also end up being pressure on the ‘voters’.

This scene is from a slum cluster in Delhi’s Khanpur where Aawaaz, a youth-led organisation, is trying to make a difference in today’s education system by introducing children to current affairs and knowledge that goes beyond their books.
Aawaaz is the dream of Hindu college alumni Vibhor and Tarang, who started it last year and now run it as an independent organisation. They focus on developing skills like critical thinking, general awareness and public speaking in children and aim to sensitise them to issues like politics, gender sensitivity, religion and caste, environment and personal and community rights. -
