Online coaching classes for adolescent girls to prepare for job oriented competitive examinations.

Programme Background

Lack of proper guidance, non-existence of coaching facilities in villages and poor financial conditions are some of the major hurdles which restricts aspiring girls of rural areas in achieving their dreams of getting govt. jobs. Since this requires cracking tough competitive exams, it is difficult to do so without proper guidance and coaching. Urmul Setu Sansthan with support from MCKS trust fund has initiated online coaching classes for the girls from disadvantaged rural familieswho have completed their higher education and are preparing for different competitive exams like Patwar, police constable, BSTC ( Basic school teacher certificate), B.Ed, forest guard, banking sector jobs. Competent subject teachers have been hired who develops topic wise videos which are shared with the girls via WhatsApp group which are linked to YouTube channel. The girls watch and learn from these videos and if they have any doubts it is cleared next day during a separate live interaction session conducted on zoom/google meet.They have also been provided with notes (hard copies) on these subjects for reference.

We are three sisters and we all have completed our 12th grade exams and have applied for high court examinations. My father is a daily wage worker and cannot afford to send all of us to coaching centers. Thanks to MCKS trust for organising online coaching classes. We have enrolled ourselves in the classes and are preparing for the examination together. The classes are very beneficial and we are trying our best and hope to clear the examination

My father works as a Taxi driver. His earning is just enough to sustain our family. He arranged money for my B.Ed course with much difficulty and hence I was hesitant and worried to ask for permission for joining coaching center, when I applied for REET examination. But, when I came to know about the online coaching classes my worries vanished. I am regularly attending the classes and am satisfied with the course content. I am working hard and hope to pass my examination. Please accept my thanks and gratitude for holding the online coaching classes
