HOPE foundation Matriculation School started in 2001 and currently 401 students from Kannaginagar Slum Resettlement Colony , Chennai benefit through this school. It provides FREE English Medium Education. The school has integrated technology into subject teaching and Pre KG to higher class students learn their subjects through audio visual methods which has been made possible with the generous support of DELL. Teachers besides academics focuses on the holistic development of the students.
The children who attend the school come from a very poor background. mostly children are raised by single parent. The fathers of these children and daily wage earners and more often than not spend their days earning in drinking alcohol. Many a times the mothers are not able to give proper meals to the children because of which the children often fall sick. Lot of anti social activities happen in this area and it is very risky for women and girls to go out after sunset.
English Medium Education is a distant dream for the children of this area hence to solve the problem we are providing FREE ENGLISH MEDIUM Education. we also stress on imparting and inculcating good values in the children so no matter even if they stay in an anti social environment it will not affect their thinking. We counsel the parents and guardians of the students and when necessary visit the homes. Major focus is on developing their vocabulary skills and presentation skills.
The students will acquire their basic education in this school which will help them to continue their further education and pursue career of their choice and will help them earn a descent salary and support their family.
