This project is organized by the womenaeuros group at Dunhinna and they are conducting various development activities in the area. This area is an abandon tea plantation area, decades ago government distributed lands among the landless people. They have village school categorized under aeurooeHarsh or difficultaeuro. Teachers are not motivated to go this kind of poor schools because of lack of facilities. According to local thinking Science, Mathematics and English are the most difficult subjects because lack of teachers. Students are studying English since age of 8 but they do not have an opportunity to use it. We need to make English as a practical subject.
Mainly teaching English to village youths and adults using practical way. It could be a story telling, speech, expedition, role play or a game.
