The DMK government launched ‘Illam thedi kalvi’ to fill the gaps in learning among students of classes 1 to 8 owing to the impact of the covid-19 pandemic on education.
Under the initiative, volunteers will engage with the students for one hour every evening in spaces that will be identified and opened in the community.
” The initiative will first begin in 12 districts. We expect to learn a lot from the pilot project and implement the feedback. Students of government, as well as private schools, can attend these classes, which will be activity-based and allow them to enjoy and learn. These classes will be structured around their syllabus. I appeal to volunteers to come forward and register themselves” said Mr Anbil Mahesh Poyyamozhi.
The volunteer student ratio would be 1:20 and over one lakh volunteers were expected to join the initiative.
If you want to be a volunteer, enrol yourself in a web portal https://illamthedikalvi.tnschools.gov.in which was launched by the School Education Minister.
