Afterschool Programs

Once the out-of-school children are integrated into regular schools, we support them with an Afterschool Program for the length of their schooling life. In the program, children reiterate the concepts they learn in school while getting exposure to additional activities for their holistic development.

The Need

Children who get admitted to schools through lateral entry are often unable to cope with the stress of structured syllabus and other expectations of mainstream schooling. 

Objective of Afterschool Programs

The objectives of the Afterschool Program are to:

  • enable the holistic development of the child and family,
  • ensure good performance in school academic assessments and curricular activities,
  • prevent children from dropping out of school,
  • monitor their studies through evening tuition, and
  • guide them for higher studies and ultimately, establish them in their chosen field.
