Our English Medium School was set up in 2010, primarily to provide education to our Rehab Center children who were struggling in mainstream school as their HIV medication and restricted health affected their concentration and attendance.

 

How we help

 

Our curriculum accommodates their special needs and focuses on play-based activities and interactive learning through technology, sports and the arts. We have also opened our doors to children from our slum and local communities, many of whom have been excluded from other schools or faced bullying due to their backgrounds or social standing, with the aim of improving social integration and acceptance.

 

 

Who we help

 

We provide education from lower kindergarden (LKG) up to 8th standard for children aged 5 to 15, and have capacity to build this right up to 12th standard, after which they will be encouraged to continue onto higher education. By understanding and adapting to their different needs we are seeing improved academic performance from our children.

 

 

How you can help

 

Our school relies on donations to provide educational materials, keep our school bus running and providing excursions. Help us to ensure our children’s health issues and social standing do not hold them back from their right to an equal education.
