Parner pre-schools is a project stewarded by Asha for Education, Minnesota and funded by Asha for Education, Silicon Valley . Asha for Education currently provides for the education of around 125 children of Bhil and Thakkar tribes in Ahmednagar district in Parner taluka.

+ 5 hamlets.
+ Around 125 children.
+ 1 teacher per school to lead interpretive / learning activities.
+ 1 assistant teacher/helper per school to persuade children to attend and to run creche services after school period is over.
+ 1 program coordinator to recruit and manage staff and to conduct ongoing awareness programs for + parents to foster demand for education.
+ 4 training sessions/year for each employee to develop skills

Literacy rate > 30 years age group is 5% in this tribal area. Children in illiterate societies do not have role models and an environment conducive to the education process. Pre-schools are particularly useful in fostering an awareness and interest in education in communities where parents are unable to provide the preparation for primary school. In the absence of pre-schools, children find the first foray into government primary schools daunting and drop-out rates are high.

We are working to provide the preparation for primary school to help more children get further along in their education.
