The purpose of After-School Support Program, is to help children who have graduated from primary education with Prayas or completed Class-V from somewhere else. After school support is an initiative dedicated towards children who study in government schools and other private schools outside the community in NOIDA. The typical age group of the children who are enrolled in the after school support program is 11-19.
This program helps them in various ways:
- Academic Support. As many of them are first generation schools goers, children need support in many subjects. Regular classes in evenings are conducted by tutors to help them in English, Mathematics and Science. Volunteers also conduct programs from time to time.
- Admissions support. This support is provided to children who seek admissions in secondary schools and those who seek admission in colleges.
- Financial assistance. This program is to support those children who otherwise can’t afford their education. Under this program, parents are encouraged to contribute as much as possible towards their child’s future and the remaining fund requirements are supported by us. The financial support continues in consultation with parents until the child completes Class-XII.
- Professional & Career opportunities. This program is currently being extended to also facilitate professional education for the deserving children. Children who are academically bright are encouraged to enrol for professional courses aligned with their interest. The ones who are not very bright in education will also be oriented towards vocational and other career opportunities aligned with their interests and skills.
