To reach all the school teachers, the active learning training is also conducted at school level in the form of peer learning. Monitoring of the implementation of active leaning is conducted twice a year with the use of the checklist and format developed for this purpose. Following the supervision, progresses are recorded and documented.

        Empowering Young Girls for competency
