The ‘Teacher on Call’ project that has been running successfully for three years in West Bengal was today launched for government school students (class VI to X) of Faridabad by Sh. Yashpal Yadav, Hon’ble Deputy Commissioner of Faridabad through an online launch program attended by around 150 educationists, corporate leaders, students and media representatives.
‘Teacher on Call’ is an educational help desk for the students with curiosity. In this program teachers are available on call – 7 days a week. Students of class VI to X of the Faridabad District can call on the Toll Free number 1800 890 6006 for queries in Mathematics, Science, Social Science & English and will get connected to a well-qualified and experienced subject teacher, who would answer his/her queries over the call.
While addressing the gathering, Sh. Yashpal Yadav appreciated the role of Manav Rachna in transforming the education landscape of Haryana. He complimented Sahaj Path Knowledge Foundation and the Faridabad Education Council for launching this project in Faridabad at such a crucial time and expressed hope that this would go a long way in improving the education standards and student performance in the region. The toll-free service will be beneficial for underprivileged children of the state. Thus, the project will identify and nurture nascent talent who otherwise may not be able to realize their full potential.
Dr. Prashant Bhalla, President, Manav Rachna Educational Institutions shared that the project shall promote self-learning, creativity and will help nurture nascent talent which otherwise may not be able to realize its full potential.
