Sir Ratan Tata Trust (SRTT), through its Early Literacy Initiative, supports curriculum development, field-level pedagogy and research in the area of literacy learning in Indian languages. A proposal has been submitted to SRTT by Organisation For Early Literacy Promotion (OELP), New Delhi, for the continuation in Kishengarh Block of Ajmer district in Rajasthan of interventions that introduce meaningful teaching methods and facilitative classroom environments for literacy learning in young learners from disadvantaged socio-economic backgrounds. SRTT has previously supported similar OELP interventions in selected schools of the Municipal Corporation, Delhi (MCD) and more recently the Bal Sahyog Kendras (BSKs) in Ajmer District which are ongoing. The new project proposal is for the period 2012-2015. The SRTT has requested Ms. Zakiya Kurrien to appraise the proposal, review OELP’s current work and material, and make recommendations to strengthen the proposal and OELP’s activities on the ground.
