Supplementary Education to 100 children in India



Many children living in Trichy slums drop out of school before completing their education. This project supports at risk students in grades 4-10 by giving them coaching classes. The classes give students the individual attention they lack at school & the guidance they lack at home. Specially trained teachers help students improve in subjects that are difficult for them, which are identified by tests. The students are also counseled to help them cope with emotional / psychological stress.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

In Trichy slums, many individuals engage in criminal activity to earn a living because their socio-economic status and lack of education make it difficult for them to find other jobs. Children growing up in this environment are more prone to drop out of school and also engage in criminal activity because of the influence of community members as well as the need to earn money to support their families. This creates a cycle of delinquency and lack of education in these communities.

How will this project solve this problem?

This project addresses this problem in several ways. First, it gives children role models who are not engaged in criminal activity and who motivate students to continue their education. Second, the classes help students to keep up with their course work so that they do not fall behind and become discouraged at school. Third, it provides students with counselors that help students cope with stress that might otherwise lead to them dropping out.

Potential Long Term Impact

Shifting the focus of a community from criminal activity to being productive members of society takes a generational shift. By educating the children, and ensuring that they have the skills to take advantage of opportunities presented to them, New Life enables children from these communities to lift themselves and their families out of poverty. This project will affect two of the twelve slums that were identified by Trichy police as most prone to criminal activity for three years.
