MFE Supported Programs:
"Samajun-Umajun": Online Teacher Training Courses
In April 2020, as a response to the indefinite closure of schools due to COVID19 lockdown, QUEST launched week-long online courses on Language and Math Pedagogy, for teachers, to address the learning gaps that children will face after staying away from school. The courses were targeted to teachers but attended by parents as well to help them engage meaningfully with children during the lockdown period. With the support of Motivation for Excellence, the fees for the courses were highly subsidized and were easily affordable for teachers from urban as well as rural Maharashtra.
