A Virtual Volunteering Project
UCDVO & SWL
Towards strengthening Irish-India cooperation
Chalo Padho the ongoing UCDVO – SWL virtual volunteering literacy project focuses on online interactive learning for the children in the age group of 6-8 years who prior to the pandemic were going to government or private schools, in the Sangam Vihar area.
Chalo Padho’s aims to complement and enhance the online learning process already in place at SWL.
The structure of the program has been designed by selected volunteers and coordinators from UCD Dublin and Delhi University working through a ‘buddy system.’ It envisages that children with minimum supervision can work through various types of learning tools, especially pre-recorded videos and an accompanying workbook. It also includes interactive cartoons, quizzes, activity sheets which support the curriculum taught in the schools. The focus is on the 3 R’s – Reading, Writing & Arithmetic (Math). The volunteers together with the SWL & UCDVO teachers and coordinators on the ground will be conducting live interactive sessions at the CEDC Centre.
