Injot Learning Centres

Injot Lockdown Learning Centres were started in Amsing Jorabat in Kamrup Metropolitan District, and Rangagaon and Kachugaon villages in Kokrajhar district for students who did not have access to online classes to ensure continuity in their education. Besides regular classes, an environment has been prepared with requisite stationery supplies for art-based activities, recreational games like badminton, football and frisbee. All centres were equipped with infra-red thermometers, sanitisers, soaps and two masks per child and facilitators. Each child was also provided notebooks and other stationery materials. The centres have books and writing boards too. These centres were later rechristened as Injot Learning Centres. It is a volunteer-led facility and about 150 students are enrolled in these centres at the moment.


Bamboo and tarpaulin sheds were built in open spaces to receive the students. Initially the work was done through shramdaan of parents of the children. Due to storms and heavy rains, several repairs have taken place over time. Each centre has the following infrastructure components:

  • Learning area
  • Learning tools
  • Power supply (as per requirement)

Basic material: white boards/black boards, pens and dusters

Opened amidst the Covid 19 pandemic, we had to ensure that no stone is left unturned in terms of safety while we tried to reconnect 150 children to their learning process. After extensive training and repetition of instruction, safety norms had become a way of life for everyone visiting the centre.

& Protocols at the Centres

All our lockdown learning centres are designed in a way that classes can take place in open areas. Each centre has been provided the following safety equipment along with extensive training on usage of mask, sanitisers, temperature check and appropriate physical (social) distancing:

  • Infra-red thermometers
  • Hand sanitisers
  • Soap for hand washing
  • Masks (2 per student/volunteers and replacement in case of damage)


Inside Our Learning Centres

Supplementary Classes for Students of Various Age Groups: As the students of the community had no access to online education we started taking classes to support the children stay connected to studies. 

Educational Trips: Exposure trips like a visit to Guwahati Zoo and Botanical Garden are part of Injot’s initiatives in the learning centres.

Experiential Projects: We believe that learning becomes fun when it is experientially done. To encourage the idea of curiosity and to have fun while learning we introduced programs like backyard farming, parent-child backyard farm project, thrift store project, letter box project amongst many others. 

Space for Creativity and Fun: Our centres are equipped with various teaching-learning material along with recreational material like football, frisbees and art supplies so that children could also engage in low contact games, explore various arts along with their academic engagement.
