Primary school enrollments have shown a steady increase over the last decade but the learning levels have remained very low. Even though children are moving up from one grade to the next, very few actually master the learning outcomes expected of the grade. The shift to predominantly online format due to the pandemic has further exacerbated the situation for the underprivileged section.
Strategically spaced assessments help the teachers assess the progress and tweak the teaching as needed.

The Hongirana Foundation initiated collaboration with the Ganigarapalya Government Higher Primary School in June 2022, with a dedicated commitment to enhancing educational standards for the academic year 2022-23 and beyond.

In its initial phase, HF employed two guest teachers. Over a span of just two years, the foundation expanded its team to encompass five educators specializing in Mathematics, Kannada, and English for students in grades 4 through 6. Alongside, HF successfully implemented a volunteer-driven learning program to aid students encountering difficulties in these subjects. This integration of guest teachers and volunteers has facilitated the effective implementation of the Teaching at the Right Level (TaRL) methodology. Through consistent assessments and continuous monitoring of student progress, HF has achieved notable outcomes.
