Challenge

Academic performance of children in the project villages is poor. There is no one to guide them in studies. Children lack facilities to study in their homes. Many children come to school, collect noon meal and then leave. There is lack of motivation of parents to provide higher education - girls are stopped to assist the mothers in their household work and to look after younger siblings. Boys are stopped to work and earn money. Drop-out rate of children increases after primary classes.

Solution

Through the project Free Evening Tuition Centers will be established in 10 villages @ 40 children per center. A tuition master will help children in studies. Methods used will motivate the children to study well and improve performance. To regain strength, to maintain health and to motivate children to come to the centers a nutritious snack will be given. With better performance of children, parents will be motivated to provide higher education to children that include girl children.

Long-Term Impact

With continuous motivation of children and parents, and better performance of children, a high percent of children will go for higher education. There will be changes in the attitudes of parents about investing in education of children. Children in the centers will become role models for their younger generation. Parents will become change agents for their respective communities. Children develop their innate skills for perfection and excellence. The general health of the children will improve.
