Science (biology), math and English tuition programme

The level of teaching in subjects such as science (biology), math and English is poor in rural schools in human-elephant conflict areas. Competence in these subjects will enable rural children to be more inquisitive and aware of their surroundings, leading them to be sensitive to the environment.
