Gyanodaya Project, which started in July 2018, engages and interacts with students through e-learning videos. This technology is used to insert questions in connection with the lessons. The unique element of this module is that there is an assessment which is done at the end of each lesson. Based on the assessment, the students are given feedback for further improvement. 

The audio-visual medium makes learning interesting and the project hopes to improve retention levels of students. Gyanodaya also hopes to improve the attendance in schools along with improvement in performance of students.

Phoolo Jhano SAKSHAM Ajivika Sakhi Mandal

When Adani Skill Development Centre (ASDC) launched one of its centres in Godda District on 16 October 2018, women from its villages willingly joined. Until then, the rural women of Godda District used to find difficulties in managing both household work and going out to earn. 

ASDC trained more than 1,000 women, helping them earn a better living without going out of their village. 1,160 women of Godda District were divided into 114 Self-Help Groups and the group was named as ‘Phoolo Jhano SAKSHAM Ajivika Sakhi Mandal’. 

Smt. Kiran Pasi, District Collector, Godda, helped these women to get their first stitching order of 7 lakh school uniforms for students of the Government Schools in Godda District. Shri Raghubar Das, Chief Minister of Jharkhand, acknowledged the efforts of these women and said that the cloth required for stitching will be prepared by the local people. SAKSHAM not only trained women but also opened stitching centers for them, giving employment and a good earning to these women.
