Inclusive education project launched in Puducherry

A first of its kind initiative has been launched in Puducherry by the Sri Aurobindo Society – SAS for the children with learning disabilities.

The project is called Rupantar and aims to create inclusion in the field of education for children that have learning problems.

As part of the Rupantar project, a three-day workshop for teachers was recently held in Puducherry.

Training of teachers vital for Inclusive Education

70 teachers were trained to handle the requirements of children with special needs from classes 1 to 8. SAS is hoping to train all the teachers in Puducherry under the project. Through the training, teachers in all schools will be able to identify children with learning disabilities and help them according to their needs. The training of teachers in all schools is vital for making the education system inclusive for everyone. Rupantar was first launched in Uttar Pradesh and is currently working in 9 states across the country.
