Greetings from Team Caring with Colour!

In May 2021, Caring with Colour completed 4 years in operation. Starting from a seed-central idea of improving the quality of education in government schools in 2017 to collaborating with 3000+ schools across 3 educational districts in Karnataka in 2021, our organization and our team has had a journey filled with spectacular milestones.

In our 4 year exciting journey lie stories of innovation, grassroot leadership, great successes that fill our hearts with joy, and fantastic failures worth celebrating. We have gained from the knowledge and support of all our stakeholders who believed in our vision of bringing experiential learning to every classroom in the country.

As we move into our fifth year of work with the government schooling system, we wish to share stories of the work we are doing and insights of our experiences in the field through our quarterly newsletter series Our Imprints.

In the first edition of Our Imprints, we give you a glimpse at our efforts of solving some of the challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic in the government education system in India.

Happy reading!

 Teacher's Corner 
We are inspired by.......

Ms. Suma and Ms. Prabhavathi, two very dedicated teachers of Tumakuru district, were part of the Online Experiential Teacher Training Program at Tumakuru. They reached out to us saying they had been inspired by the dedication of Team CWC.

The two extraordinary women found that making multiple physical copies of the Project Based Learning modules for distribution to the children was a challenge. Determined not to let it deter them, they bought a printer by sharing the cost of the printer between them!

Since then, they have been making copies of all available resources to provide to the children, thus ensuring that young minds are engaged in learning through the pandemic.

 Know-How
  In this section, we will be addressing some common and not-so-common concepts that are often perplexing to all of us.     
Let's look at one of the most common errors we make while writing English.
 
‘Your’ is the possessive form of the pronoun 'you' and is usually followed by a noun. ‘You’re’ is the contraction of the words 'You' and 'are'. The apostrophe represents the missing letter 'a'.
 
Test yourself:
 
  1. a) You’re here! Welcome!
      b) Your here! Welcome!

We would love to here your thoughts on our journey and our stories.
