  • I do not teach anyone. I only provide the environment in which they can learn

    - Albert Einstein

    If you can love a child, you know what love is

    Don't shout at the child, you will get rid of bad habit of shouting

    Don't beat a child, you will get rid of violence

    If you can change for yourself, what more the child will need

    - Gijubhai Badekha

  • FOREWORDIt gives me great pleasure to write this foreword to the study on School for Kids

    conducted by Mrs. Swathi Dev, Project Research Associate, Centre for Innovations in Public

    Systems (CIPS) Hyderabad. Mrs. Swathi Dev spent 10 days at Cheepurupalli,

    Vizianagaram District (A.P.) and visited number of in different villages run by

    to thoroughly understand the joyful and playful concept of teaching rural children

    without the burden of Slates, Books, Home works etc. She brings forth in her study with clarity,

    how rural child can learn to read and write English, Telugu alphabets and also numerals without

    knowing they are learning. All this learning takes place through plays, songs and dances. CIPS is

    bringing to the attention of mainstream, innovative approaches hidden away in interior rural

    areas. CIPS is contributing a great deal to the Human Resource development in Rural India.
