The center provides free coaching to hundreds of underprivileged students to prepare for entrance exams of prominent college and universities.

Notably, Care for All Trust inaugurated their CFAT Vocational Training Center in Kairana on January 10 this year. The vocational center will start with a fashion designing course and subsequently, introduce various courses like opticians comprehensive course, sight testing course, contact lens fitting course, dispensing & fitting course, ophthalmic optics course, marble polishing course in Bangalore, sewing, embroidering course, leather bags manufacturing course, IT skill development,  web designing, MS Office and OS, graphic designing course, and Computer accounting course

It might be mentioned that Kairana is a small underdeveloped district with 50 per cent of its population living below the poverty line.

Care for All Trust aims to provide job-oriented and skill based training to women to overcome this poverty and increase their standard of living.

The NGO operates on a simple principle that if women are empowered, the next generation of children will automatically get a better future.

NewsGram talked to the Founder and Chairman of Care for All Trust, Imran Siddiqui. He said that he felt the need that the students should be provided the resources and chances so that they can achieve success but barriers like poverty do not let it happen and that is why he started the trust which provides the education free of the cost.

Imran said, “the students need resources and support to overcome the obstacles. Since, poverty was a major concern, free education would be of great assistance to the people of the village.”

An engineer by profession, Imran went to the USA in 2008 and met some more enthusiastic people who were eager to help the downtrodden people of rural India.

In 10 years the rigorous effort of Imran helped students crack tough entrance examinations of premiere institutions including AMU, JMI, and other institutes.

Imran is also considering to expand their organization and reach out to more such people.

Trust also indulges in talent hunt programs to encourage and promote young talents.

Imran further mentioned,”the public is appreciative of the effort of the Trust. People from around the world are donating for the cause.”

Though the body does not take government assistance but many administrative officials attended programs conducted by the trust.

Trust is also running a crash course in Saharanpur and hopes to expand its wings in other districts well. The social media is used in the promotion of the initiative.

The Care for All Trust aims to make some fruitful impact on the lives of many underprivileged children. The help provided to children is good no matter how from whom it is coming.

  • To help students concentrate and learn more, teachers have found a new way of teaching them.
  • This technique of teaching outdoors will boost children’s mental capabilities to learn and remember.

Are your students unable to concentrate on their lessons in the classroom? Take them for outdoor learning sessions.

According to a study, a lesson in the lap of nature can significantly increase children’s attention level and boost their learning.

While adults exposed to parks, trees or wildlife have been known to experience benefits such as increased physical activity, stress reduction, rejuvenated attention and increased motivation, in children, even a view of greenery through a classroom window can have positive effects on their attention span, the researchers said.

The study showed that post an outdoor lesson, students were significantly more attentive and engaged with their schoolwork and were not overexcited or inattentive.

Moreover, the number of times the teacher had to redirect a student’s attention to their work was roughly halved immediately after an outdoor lesson.

“Our teachers were able to teach uninterrupted for almost twice as long at a time after the outdoor lesson and we saw the nature effect with our sceptical teacher as well,” said Ming Kuo, a scientist at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in the US.

For the study, published in the journal Frontiers in Psychology, researchers tested their hypothesis in third graders (9-10 years old) in a school.

Over a 10-week period, an experienced teacher held one lesson a week outdoors and a similar lesson in her regular classroom and another, more sceptical teacher did the same. Their outdoor “classroom” was a grassy spot just outside the school, in view of a wooded area.

A previous research suggested that 15 minutes of self-paced exercise can also significantly improve a child’s mood, attention and memory. IANS
