Programs

We promote after school education centres in rural India to promote fun and interactive learning.

We run 3 programs Kindergarten Centres for ages 3 years to 5 years, Primary Education for Standards 1 to 6, and Coaching Centres for Std 10 children to perform well and pass the Indian Board exams We select and train young village women to become Teachers to teach at our Centres. We continue to monitor them and provide additional training every month and help to build their skills and capacity. Under our library program we work with Organizations and Schools to set up libraries and promote reading through programs and librarian training. We provide consultancy and support to libraries.
