Maths & Science Curriculum Enhancement Project

The Mathematics & Science Curriculum Enhancement project was launched on 9 Dec 2017 in partnership with Bangalore-based Parikrma Humanity Foundation. Over the next three years, 175 school teachers including 30 master trainers will be trained in Maths & Science pedagogical and assessments methods with the aim of nurturing 21st century students with strong thinking and problem-solving skills. The collaboration will potentially benefit more than 700 teachers and over 5,250 school children in Bangalore. This project marks another milestone in the 22-year friendship between the Singapore International Foundation and communities in India to uplift lives and build enduring friendships for a better world.

Key dignitaries from the Indian) education sector, both from the public and private spheres, turned up in full force to support the SIF-Parikrma project launch at the Chancery Pavillion in Bangalore. Also present at the event were the Singapore International Volunteers (SIV) who would be leading the project as well as Mr Roy Kho, Consul-General, Singapore’s Consulate in Chennai, India.

The SIF’s partner for this project, Bangalore-based Parikrma Humanity Foundation, runs several schools for children from underserved communities and believes that every child should get the best education regardless of their background.

The project builds capacity by equipping these teachers with skills to become Master Trainers, so they can, in turn, share knowledge with their peers and impact the education sector in Karnataka. Over 700 teachers would benefit from the Mathematics and Science Curriculum Enhancement Project.
