Kerala Government’s programme of teaching tribal children in their mother tongue has become a runaway hit amongst them.
- The programme, implemented by the Samagra Siksha Kerala (SSK), has succeeded in retaining hundreds of tribal children in their online classes by making them feel at home with the language of instruction.
- The SSK has distributed some 50 laptops exclusively for Namath Basai. Prerecorded classes are offered through a YouTube channel.
- Classes are being offered in three tribal languages in Attappady. While the Irula language has the largest number of takers, the Muduka and Kurumba language do not have as many.
