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.

Solution

-Anxiety towards an event like a major examination can be overcome effectively by practicing Pranayama and few asanas. -Lack of confidence in children about their own abilities is overcome by showing examples of success from similar backgrounds through motivational talks and videos. -Difficult subject matter is adressed by sessions handled by very renowned teachers. -Career guidance is also given to the students so that make informed decisions while picking future course of studies.

Long-Term Impact

Child will be able to successfully complete tenth grade and will be able to pick career of his or her interest. This would mean a successfully employed future citizen, who is out of the net of poverty.
