Academics

Our teaching methods radically differ from the regular, timetable driven, classroom confined, academic and achievement oriented schooling, prevalent in the present society.

Through experiential learning, Kedi mentors try to prepare autonomous learners and life-learners. They learn personal responsibility, financial independence and community living. A systemic and sustained development of attitude and aptitude towards learning is encouraged.

Our teachers-mentors have developed state of the art pedagogic strategies of learner’s evaluation to enhance their thinking capacity, creativity and expressive abilities. Mentors offer interactive, experiential methodology and design unique, need based curriculum inclusive of prescribed textbooks.

The personal needs of a learner are also taken care of by implementing both accelerated learning and remedial learning.

The High-school graduation program leading to certification up to class XII. All the 10th and 12th standard students appear for the final State School Board’s Examinations, to ensure that Kedi students are prepared to enter and excel at the University level.

Training and Exposure for Mentors

Both Mentors and Learners practice innovative, collaborative, flexible and interactive methods which give learners a wide spectrum of individual and group activities like designing games to understand concepts, research oriented projects, presentations using technology and local environment.

Over the period of time, Kedi has charted its own path. Our study module evolves from time to time through experiences as we interact with learners.

Vocational Competence

Kedi tries to develop skills that lead to economic independence which allow the girls that are first generation learners to assert their rights amidst regressive and extant patriarchal mores.

It is mandatory for Kedi students to undergo vocational trainings like: Preparing artefacts like bags, envelopes etc., using indigenous Warli art and locally available material like bamboo. Organic Farming, Animal Husbandry and Milk Products. Developing Marketing skills to expand their customer base. Embroidery, Cutting and Stitching skills are mandatory to learn for each student for making bed, table linens and clothing.

We have collaboration with local vocational institutes that further develops them for higher professional skills to work in various fields of career.
