News - Senior Citizens To Teach Underprivileged Children In Government School

For the first time, an initiative has been launched by a non-profit body headed by the PM and a peripheral wing of AIIMS in which senior citizens will teach underprivileged children at a government school in Noida.The Ministry of Culture, which plans to launch similar centres across the country, will provide funds to this pilot project.

The Gandhi Smriti and Darshan Samiti in collaboration with the Healthy Aging India, a non-profit organisation working as a peripheral wing of the department of geriatric medicine at AIIMS, have commissioned the centre which will be run at Purba Madhyamik Vidyalaya in Noida, UP.

Intent behind the initiative :

Dr Prasoon Chatterjee, an assistant professor at AIIMS, told that the objective is to give the elderly a meaningful engagement and empower underprivileged school children by providing them holistic education from senior citizens.

"Besides their regular subjects, students from Class VI to XII will also be given life lessons for 2 hours after school. The idea is also to tap the knowledge of these senior citizens," he told. Also, the elderly feel cut-off from the society and get isolated in today's fast-paced life. The motto is to bring them together at a platform to foster sensitivity among the youngsters, he said.
