ABOUT THE CONTRAEDU CATALYSER PROGRAMME BY TEAM KSHITIZZ
The CONTRAEDU Catalyser programme is an opportunity for India’s brightest and most promising individuals, from the nation’s best universities and workplaces; to serve as part-time teachers for children from the under-served and under-privileged communities in some of the nation’s most under-resourced slums and villages. Through this experience of virtual teaching and working with key stakeholders of the education sector, like students, professionals and parents, our catalysers will get exposed to the ground realities of India’s education system and would also begin to develop the knowledge, skills, and mindsets essential in the attainment of positions of leadership in the education sector. Further, the catalysers can identify their role and contribute towards building a wider movement for educational equity in the country.
Our Catalysers will transform the lives of children in their classroom, and in turn, prepare themselves for future positions of leadership in educational equity.
Our Catalysers will be placed in part-time virtual teaching. Key responsibilities include teaching students of Grade 6 to 10 virtually; taking lectures of law subjects (including mooting, debating, researching); and aid young law aspirants in classes 10-12 in the preparation of CLAT, AILET and other Law Entrance Examinations.
WHY DID WE START THIS CATALYSER PROGRAMME AND WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
Imagine a situation where you are a first generation law student hailing from a lower middle class family while you are struggling to survive law school, barely managing the tuition fees, (since you don’t have the benefit of any scholarships or education loans). You don’t even have a laptop to work on the basic assignments or attend virtual classes. For such students, the pandemic has only made the situation worse.
In the past two years, we have been reached out by many such students, who are struggling to survive law school because of one or more of the abovementioned reasons.
Recently, we have come across an incident where students aren’t even able to buy laptops to pursue their education online, let alone the submission of their education fees.
We, at Kshitizz, believe and expect that students and professionals from across different streams should come forward to help the young students from marginalised sections so that we strive towards equality as mentioned and expected in the Constitution of India.
As we were already working towards providing education to marginalised sections, we have now clubbed it with the idea of providing a monthly stipend (as assistance) to the students, professionals and other people joining our catalyser programme.
In our catalyser s, we look for leadership qualities such that they can join a movement towards educational equity. Aside from passion and commitment to the movement, we look for leadership potential that can be developed through the catalyser programme.
Our catalysers must possess skills such as critical thinking and problem solving. They must demonstrate interpersonal skills through their interactions with various stakeholders, along with academic excellence.
In order to be eligible to apply to the Catalyser programme, you must be an Indian Citizen and should have keen interest towards bringing educational equality.
The catalysers will be expected to devote one to two hours daily/weekly depending on the classes and tasks allotted to them (except during examination and competitions, which must be intimated beforehand). They will be remunerated with a sum of INR 5,000 – 15,000 based on the task allotted under the catalyser programme.
