The curriculum will be based on Breakthrough''s ''Taaron Ki Toli'' programme that will be introduced as part of the Moral Sciences, Social Studies, and English syllabi for classes 6-8, covering over 4,500 government schools in the state, Breakthrough said in a statement.
"Under the programme, nearly 46,000 teachers will be trained on delivering the curriculum. The programme is expected to reach over a million students in the state. The curriculum consists of a series of interactive, safe, and open discussions to empower adolescents to transform their gender attitudes, aspirations, and behaviours," the statement said.
J-PAL South Asia will conduct an independent process evaluation to generate insights for sustained, high-quality, government implementation.
The statement said the partnership was launched by Chief Minister Amarinder Singh on the occasion of International Women''s Day. PTI UZM SMN
