Activities / Initiatives

When he joined Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya, the student strength was very low.  Ashutosh, along with JNV staff members, conducted door-to-door campaigns and awareness programs among villagers to increase the student enrollment in schools. 

In his classes, he focuses on activity-based learning for the students. While students are, in general, scared of the Science subjects, Jawahar's fun teaching methodologies have made his students love the learning process.
