Bulandshahr, Lakhawati attended this meeting. EQUIPS is a pilot project of the Ministry of Education, UP and the British Council (a cultural relations organization of the UK) where 8 select schools from Delhi & NCR are acting as Mentors to 32 Kasturbha Gandhi Balika Vidyalayas from Uttar Pradesh. The Mentor schools are: DLPS, Sahibabad, Ahlcon Interternational School, New Delhi, Nehru World School, Ghaziabad, Meerut Public Girls School, Kaushalya World School, Indirapuram Public School, and DPS Ghaziabad.

The project aims at hand holding the KGBV schools to better the education processes within these schools through three interesting projects: 100 words: Where school girls are learning to communicate in English, Global Citizenship: Where they are learning about the other countries; and School Enterprise: Where they are learning to set up an Enterprise in their own School and are acquiring business and leadership skills to become self-reliant and self-dependent. Mentor schools are acting as facilitators and are creasing out any learning difficulties/hurdles to smoothen the execution of the projects.

All mentor schools, KGBV schools and delegates from the British Council came together to review the progress of the project so far and assess the future plans. There was also a Professional Development Certification Course on Introduction to International Learning that introduced ways through which education for global citizenship can enhance learning.

Mrs. Ruchira Ghosh, Head Business Development, Schools, British Council said, “It is actually facilitating the pathways for school improvement; the best part being the mentor-mentee relationship where it is not about having or not having but rather supporting each other”said, “An oasis- quiet, peaceful- a place of gentle learning, a memorable visit for me. Thank you!”
“Through this 2-day workshop, we had time to clear our doubts and solve our problems. Many things which we couldn’t understand clearly at first, we had all our uncertainties solved from the mentor school and the delegates.” Said Mrs. Swati Sharma from Kasturba Gandhi Balika Vidyalaya, Anoopshahar.
