“Inclusive and equitable quality education for all”

Our education programs focus on creating learning spaces to equip the communities with the knowledge and skills required to foster human values, enable holistic thinking, contribute to societal development and balance between materialistic and spiritual needs.  

Quality education is still a distant dream for many children and communities in remote and rural areas of our country. The primary focus of the program is training, curriculum development, digital literacy, research, advocacy and infrastructure development.  We work towards improving vocational skills, teaching-learning pedagogies, use of information and communication technologies, innovative learning modules and creating an enabling learning environment for both the children and the facilitator.

We believe that Education is the key driver to eradicate poverty, achieve gender equality, foster economic growth and enhance personal and social development. Therefore, we propose inclusive and equitable quality education for all. 

In this process, we support communities by identifying needs and gaps, providing necessary skill building training.

Sustainable Development Goals

Projects undertaken and ongoing

E Learning Programme

In the wake of covid, we partnered with Pratham and Learning with Vodafone initiative to provide training on e-learning platforms. This initiative has been a timely intervention to benefit the teachers and schools. Through the Gurushala platform we were able to build the capacities of teachers. The platform promoted the use of innovative teaching methods and pedagogy. Digital learning programs in Mathematics and Science for the students of grades 6 to 8 were launched.

Training for teachers

In 2019 – 20, ROCF reached 41 schools (5 schools from ASSEFA in Tamil Nadu and 36 schools in Karnataka) benefiting 4111 students & 85 teachers and in 2020-21, it benefitted 1360 children from 3 schools of ASSEFA.

In 2020 – 21, ROCF has collaborated with NextSkills 360 to train Government school teachers to teach students to code without computers.

Cognitive Skills Training

The primary objective of the project was to enhance cognitive skills and capacities among children. As part of the Cognitive Skills Training program we have engaged with Brighter Minds to conduct research in 3 Child Care Institutions to help formulate a 6-week program for the age group of 7 to 15-year-old children. 


Teachers as Ambassadors of Compassion

Quality education depends on the quality of the educators and educators are often the role models of our children. The goal of the project is to develop Teachers as Ambassadors of Compassion by providing necessary tools through capacity building workshops. We have conducted various workshops as part of the Inspire Teachers program on the topic of Compassion in Action and Role of Teachers in children’s lives.

Through our comprehensive training programs, we have empowered 1,265 teachers across 401 schools in 5 states—Andhra Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand, Telangana, and Gujarat. These initiatives have significantly enhanced the quality of education, fostering a positive learning environment for thousands of students
