Success Academy

$0 of $12,000 raised

Success Academy is divided into two groups Success Academy foundation class and Success Academy catch-up program.

1. Success Academy – Foundation Class: 

Education can change lives; basic education is very important to build a strong foundation for future.

Program is designed to strengthen elementary school children education from class K-5 belong to slum and remote villages where school education is just a formality.

Special worksheets same as Kumon program are designed to help children to be a master in each topic as per their individual capacities. Students must complete 12 worksheets with 70% score to complete a level. On average student can complete 8-10 levels (120+120 worksheets) of Math and English in one year. This program eliminates teacher’s teaching capability as it was challenged getting in village and slum areas.

Why

There are several studies that indicate a wide gap between rural and urban education. For instance, in rural areas people earn daily wages for their livelihood, and education is secondary for them.

The way of teaching also differs in urban schools. While the teaching methodology in rural schools is still primitive, the urban schools are keen on adopting modern ways of teaching like concept learning and focusing on the development of each student at very early age.

The real problem arises when these students go to middle or high school they start drop out of school.

Through our programs our intent is to generate some part time employment opportunities for the local talented youth. It helps them continue their studies; same time they help us running our program. Each center generates one employment opportunity specially in slum and village area. Teacher provides space at their home to run this program.
