Students receiving scholarships
Dear Maitri Friend,
It has been an exciting quarter for our Afterschool Programme. we continued to hold After-school classes for children from low-income communities in two co-locations. The students we have are aged five to sixteen. Our teachers are able to give them individual attention, which they don’t normally get in school because of bigger size of the classes. Our overall goal is to enhance their understanding, better their academic performance and enrich their holistic development. We bring you highlights and recent update on the project.
The last quarter has been of fun and education packed together. They are progressing well in their classes and have had outstanding results. They are dedicated towards their studies and are very happy with the teaching they are being provided with. During Dr. Ulf’s visit meritorious students from Maitrigram
school ARD complex and Sonia Vihar were awarded certificates of merit and scholarships of Rs. 5,000 each.
