Here's your opportunity to be part of it!
Muktangan, an initiative of Paragon Charitable Trust, is a pioneering
educational programme with an innovative model, working in close
partnership with the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai (MCGM)
and a number of NGOs across the country.
Muktangan, has pioneered the Whole School-Based approach in the urban
sector by developing a model that incorporates all the various aspects
of quality education: the classroom environment , the curriculum and
content, the teacher (whom we train from the community members) as a
facilitator and the student as an active learner.
Muktangan was founded by Elizabeth Mehta based on her vast experience
of four decades both in the formal school system and with a
professional development organization working in several States across
the country, in both urban and rural settings. It was her
understanding both of the needs of the sector, and the larger vision
of inclusion that led her to develop an approach that was
child-centered and unique. Muktangan which began as a pilot balwadi
now spans seven Municipal schools with its own integrated
teacher training program, and has impacted several other implementing
organizations through an outreach programme.
In order to consolidate and grow Muktangan, we need
1. A Secondary School Mathematics and Science teacher who will lead
this new approach to teaching of these subjects in the Middle School
Pilot programme to be launched in this academic year.
2. Social Workers who would lead or assist in Muktangan's community
programme and provide the interface between the community (mainly
parents) and Muktangan.
3. A Chief Librarian who will further develop the Library programme
across the seven schools and enhance the reading and research skills
of both children and teachers.
