Researchers have stated that children learns the most in their initial years of 0-5. However, learning in these crucial years is a remote luxury to most children in low-income communities. If school readiness is a crucial beginning to formal learning, then we believe that all must have it, irrespective of their economic standing.

The Takshashila Wisdom Centre is a post-school programme, which provides a concrete and holistic educational foundation to kids from low-salary communities to fill the learning gaps and ensure the children stay in school. Following the principle of learning today and leading tomorrow, our training does not focus only on scholastic education but also on non-academic knowledge to mould and cultivate confidence, self-esteem and self-awareness amongst students.
It follows a planned curriculum for English, Math, Hindi, Science and Social Sciences from Grade 1 till Grade 12. The process of learning for each subject ensures a steady and logical unfolding of learning at each level. Upholding the principle of holistic learning, the curriculum is implemented through a dual approach of ensuring conceptual understanding through lecture, demonstrations and experiments as well as experiential learning through celebrations, events, field trips and workshops. This technique helps us to recognize students with remedial needs; students with learning incapacities and students who need a teacher’s stern eye and create solutions within the environment of the wisdom center such that each student achieves their true potential.
