Symphony of Intergeneration’s “IGLC” meeting the needs of changing demography – a cross- sectoral approach for Holistic Education to reap demographic dividends, enhance Learning Outcomes and reduce School drop outs

Well-trained Educated Senior Citizens are meaningfully engaged in teaching and learning processes with socio-economic disadvantageous group of Children from Government Schools of Delhi and NCR through “Intergenerational Learning Centre- IGLC”.

Enrolment and retention rate, regularity and attendance in Government schools has increased reducing drop out of children from Schools. Qualitative research by us supports the positive impact of IGLC on Quality of Life, Quality of Education and Lifelong Learning in children, Elderlies and parent community.

Intergenerational Learning Centre “IGLC” started in Government school Purva Madhymik Vidyalaya (Junior High School) Sector, 12 Noida in 2017 as post school intervention with the 6 std students, nurtured in a knowledge enriched familial environment, where each child can be what he/she want to be “Knowing Thyself and channelizing inherited potential”. IGLC is running with financial support of Gandhi Smriti & Darshan Samiti, Ministry of Culture in Noida & Jewar and ONGC in Delhi. IGLC is also a research project having ethical approval from Department of Geriatric Medicine, AIIMS.

Impact - Within a short tenure, it has been found that Intergenerational Learning Centre- IGLC is mutually benefitting interacting generations. It has emerged not only as a connecting medium for generations but a link to bridge Government schools and community at large. Students are emerging as confident being and aspiring to realise their dream to become scientist, teachers, doctor, engineer, dancer, detectives, reporters, etc. Respect and care for Senior Citizens has grown in them. They are achieving good academic grades in their respective class/sections and actively participating in extra-curricular activities- Theatre, singing, dancing, drawing, etc. Parent are hoping for better future of their child and standard of living. Lifestyles and cognitive abilities of Senior Citizens or Elderlies has improved. They are more active and productive than before in daily activities. They are enjoying more respect and appreciation in their family, peer group and society.
