“Teachers at our Anganwadis were a crucial link for providing healthcare services to our students. They also helped to ensure these children continued to learn and develop cognitively despite the disruptions. Teachers have also been deployed on COVID-19 duty and they are working in sync with the Nashik Municipal Corporation. They have been visiting the containment zones for conducting door-to-door surveys. Anganwadi teachers have also played a key role in creating awareness around preventive measures, health and hygiene practices such as hand washing, wearing masks and social distancing, etc. All campaigns by Ampersand Group are rightly conceived to thank teachers for their exemplary efforts.”Chandrashekar Pagare, Child Development Project Officer, Nashik
“The Ampersand group recognizes all teachers who have moved away from their comfort zone and rose up to the occasion to ensure educational continuity during the COVID 19 pandemic that shut off access for children to schools. While Ampersand brought out innovative solutions to empower teachers to acquire the new skill-sets for delivering education through alternate technology-powered medium”Vinesh Menon, CEO – Education, Skilling & Consultancy Services, Ampersand Group
