We are Odisha Rising Foundation
683382 Raised Goal 1000000


Odisha Rising Foundation is participating in the TCS World 10K Bengaluru Marathon to raise awareness on Mother Tongue Based Learning Education(MTBLE) and use this platforms to collect funds from the well-wishers and supporter so that we can provide quality education to tribal children located in interior villages and hamlets.

NEED OF FUNDS --- In Government Schools, children are taught in Odia in Odisha which is challenging for more than 2.5 lakh tribal children from more than 1700 schools whose mother tongue is not Odia. There are 21 officially recognized tribal languages in Odisha though Odia is the State language. The context of textbooks is also unfamiliar to tribal children, leaving them unable to fully comprehend classroom teaching and activities. This has direct effect on retention and learning outcomes of children. Further, there is inadequate training, pedagogy and material support for teachers to deal with diverse classroom environments. Teachers lack the capacity to effectively deal with multilingual and multicultural classrooms. ----

The magnitude and complexity of the linguistic problem in India is immense as it is a diverse country with numerous languages and dialects. Further, there has been a linguistic erosion in our country. There is a need to promote these languages. ----

ORF's INTERVENTION ----- Mother tongue-based education a must for indigenous kids to mainstream them. A sustainable solution to the above problem were diagnosed by Odisha Rising Foundation with the participatory inputs from parents, teachers, SMCC, school officials and students and that has resulted in designing an innovative project called Mo Vaasa (My Language). ------

Project Mo Vaasa (PMV) intends to address the language issues faced by tribal students in early grades or elementary classes and prepare them to adapt Mother-Tongue Based Multi-Lingual Education (MTBMLE) in schools and 1Re Tuition Centers. Through this project, we are planning to impact more than 1000 children in the first phase from 15 Schools/Centre of Lamtaput Block of Koraput District. ---- The PMV is designed to address language gaps during early learning and to promote the growth of indigenous languages and culture in the state while developing cognitive, social, physical and mental abilities of young children leading to an easy assimilation into formal schooling. Children at early learning stages were provided education through Mother Tongue based Transition Curriculum – an innovative pedagogic initiative, training modules, assessment tools to track students’ activities, and teaching/learning materials in 10 Indigenous languages to bridge the language gap. -----


Help us raise funds for our specific needs.

Provide Mother Tongue Based Learning Education to 1000 tribal children
THE NEED OF THE PROJECT --- Project Mo Vaasa(PMV) aimed to optimize and consolidate learnings in mother tongue based Early Childhood Education and is an educational approach in which children start learning in their mother tongue in early grades with a gradual transition to Odia and other languages. With this approach, children develop strong competence in their mother tongue which becomes helpful for them to learn second and other languages at higher classes from 3rd to 5th standard onwards. The most important aspect of Mother-Tongue Based Multi-Lingual Education (MTBMLE) is that it helps save endangered tribal languages. ----- Students easily learn a second language after gaining proficiency in the first language. Primary education in a child’s first language or mother tongue is crucial to early learning and considered as most effective strategy for developing strong academic foundations and a base for acquiring proficiency in other languages. Project Mo Vaasa - Mother Tongue Based Multilingual Education (MBTMLE), helps the children’s transits to additional languages gradually. The use of mother tongue as medium of imparting education in early grades enable children to develop a strong education foundation through beginning in the language the learners know best, building on the knowledge and experience they bring to the classroom, and enhance confidence and self-esteem. ----- Through this project, we intend to impact more than 3000 tribal children so that they continue their studies and become a productive citizen.
