From implementing STEP in three partner schools, we are currently in partnership with nine under-resourced schools, which are working with a singular vision of providing education to children coming from neighbouring under-privileged communities.
Focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity, but in doing it. – Greg Anderson
At MANTRA, our journey during this last one year has been truly magical.
Our associations and partnerships have grown tremendously. As we reflect, we feel elated that through our initiative STEP (School Transformation and Empowerment Project), we have been able to put our partner schools on a path to provide quality education to our children.
One major component of STEP is ongoing, in-service professional development for teachers. Today, we are part of a 230 members’ strong teacher community. As we work together, we keep learning from each other and keep sharing the best practices.
Across our 9 partner schools, there are approx. 7100 students who are being positively affected by the improved quality of teaching in schools.
As we move to greater number of schools, our own team at MANTRA is growing too. From a two-member on-field team in Jan 2015, today as the year comes to an end, Mantra4Change has an amazing team of seven mavericks, who are passionately working towards the vision of providing high-quality education to children, no matter what background do they come from.
We thank all our amazing supporters and awesome volunteers, who have joined us in this amazing and beautiful journey. Lets weave an even more beautiful and inspiring story together in the new year..!
