If you leave us an email id when you donate, we'll send you a Thank you-note from the kids.
Number of children52 boys 48 girls
Project Cost₹ 29 000; US$ 430 ; £300
The secondary classes were started because of our first batch of class V who felt they had no option for after school support
as their parents were poor and would not be able to afford private tuition and without tuition it is impossible to succeed.
This year we welcome our first class XII batch!
Over and above school curriculum, we endeavour to widen the knowledge of the children, something crucial for children from deprived homes. The students are taught to explore encyclopaedias and general knowledge books from our well-stocked library. The centre also subscribes to newspapers to help them keep abreast with every day occurrences.
During exam time the students have regular tests based on sample papers. The pressure of exams is such that it leaves little time for as many extra curricular activities as we would like to have.
The students benefit from the volunteers who come time and again and share their knowledge and skills.
