With the reopening of schools in March 2022, rZamba also restarted its in-school initiatives. The organization formally launched the Holistic Child Well-being Initiative, targeting children from foundational learning ages, with support from the Eicher Group Foundation. Ten villages have been adopted under this initiative in collaboration with the Ladakh Autonomous Hill Development Council Kargil (Ladakh) and the Directorate of School Education Ladakh. The goal of this initiative is to promote the overall well-being of children in the targeted villages and Strengthen Foundational Learning at the adopted government schools.

The rZamba Charitable Trust has identified key areas of change for the 2022-23-24 period:

  • Develop educational leadership among Village Education Committees by supporting them in creating sustainable processes to ensure proper functioning. 
  • Support school head teachers and their support staff in streamlining certain school processes, which will have a significant impact on developing leadership attitudes and attributes among children and the community.
  •  Launch a youth educational fellowship called the Community Learning Facilitator’s Program, aimed at developing local youth as educational leaders for the communities they live in. 
  •  To create creative learning spaces in the adopted schools, starting with libraries. 
  • Finally, the Trust aims to influence classroom teaching and learning practices by introducing a project-based learning approach through the facilitators.
