Prior to the 10th std exams students from private institutions have access to tuition and additional help, whereas poor students often receive little or no support. They also lack an understanding of various career options which lie ahead of them. One small mistake at this stage could mean entrapment in the vicious cycle of poverty. Here, we step in to assist these students by organizing a 4 day prog which provides assistance to be successful in exams aswell as gives guidance on career option
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
During the 10th standard exams, most of the poor students have lot of anxiety towards facing their first public exam. Students from private institutions have access to tuition and additional help, while poor students from government and corporation schools often receive little or no support. They also lack an understanding of various career options which lie ahead of them. One small mistake at this stage could mean entrapment in the vicious cycle of poverty.
