‘Pragathi’ takes quality education to doorstep of rural students

Under ‘Pragathi’ – a unique collaboration between Dakshina Kannada Zilla Panchayat (DKZP) and the Center for Advanced Learning (CFAL), brilliant talents with a rural background are motivated to achieve set goals in their lives.

As many as 37 talents from 12 supported and government colleges in Mangaluru have been exposed to quality education by the best teachers and study materials on the CFAL campus to fulfill the dream of passing competitive exams such as JEE, CET and NEET since August.

“Many students from the medium-sized Kannada schools in villages score 85 percentage points in the SSLC exams, but feel like a fish in water after choosing PUC science stream,” Dr. Kumara, Chief Executive Officer of DKZP, who had also studied medium-sized schools in Kannada, said.

The first group of PU students from villages and weaker sections of society who cannot afford special coaching worth more than Rs 1 lakh will undergo rigorous free training for the next two years, the CEO said.

Continuing the process on how they identified 37 talents, PU Education Deputy Director Jayanna said CFAL passed an entrance exam in all colleges.

He said the CEO of DKZP issued circulars and held meetings with the directors of the PU university ahead of the entrance examination to provide all the support, including to come for oversight at CFAL.

As many as 60 of the 2,500 students were shortlisted based on merit, he said.

“These students were asked to write an essay on why they had to take JEE exams. Based on their essays, 37 students were shortlisted for the free coaching,” said CFAL Vice Principal Gaureesh Raj.

There were no special groups because Pragathi students, along with other students, attended these special classes, he added.

Students were also exposed to one-on-one mentoring sessions to help them realize that teachers were their “second parent,” Gaureesh said.

These initiatives help a student from Pragathi to overcome insecurities and also to express their problems, he said.

“Because CFAL Director Vijay Moras believes that students from all walks of life should benefit from CFAL’s rigorous training system, the free coaching provided to Pragati students is funded from CFAL’s CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) funds. said Gaureesh

He hoped that the success of the pilot project will encourage more students from similar backgrounds to access quality education.
