Workshops and Sessions
PARI stories cut across many disciplines. Poverty is not a number, but the life of a daily wage labourer who cannot afford school fees; agriculture is not only soil, weather and yield but a family-inherited occupation no longer sustainable. The distress of weavers is a palpable loss of knowledge. Stories on dying languages are precious lessons on literature and the society of the dispossessed.
At PARI Education we are sensitising a new generation to lives and livelihoods in rural India.
To know more about what we do at PARI Education, read our articles How urban classrooms can and must learn about rural India and PARI Education years 1, 2 & 3. You can also watch our short video What we do at PARI Education | पारी एजुकेशन के तहत हम क्या करते हैं.
Craft and its ties to the rural economy
Keeping alive traditional crafts that have existed for hundreds of years
Project work is an intrinsic part of all curricula. Find out how you can design projects which fit curriculum and get students to explore rural issues, creating living knowledge on their field trips. Reporting for a global audience will raise the quality of their work besides being a powerful source of learning. PARI Education will take the best projects and place them in our archive – after thoroughly vetting them for accuracy and suitability.
We believe in the power of storytelling and our website is a treasure trove of stories that you can curate into texts or supplementary readers to suit your requirements. Our easily downloadable and free-to-use material can seamlessly support your curriculum.
Even the driest topics come alive when we can weave a story around them. Use our vast resource of stories, photos, films and research reports to put a face to whatever you are teaching – from irrigation to pollution, poverty to unsustainable livelihoods – PARI has the voices of people on the ground. Read what other teachers are saying on our Testimonials page.
