In the second (Rural Innovation Through Education) RITE session of the year, 35 RITE volunteers from KLE Tech engaged with children at the CherYsh Shikshas. The volunteers were trained to conduct an evaluation competency enhancement amongst children to read, write, enunciate, and narrate stories in English. They completed the exercise covering a sample size of 280 Shiksha students.
The RITE volunteers were encouraged to take leadership of the villages they visited. It was exciting to see youth volunteers adopt their village, and set goals to enable the children to score better!
