About the Learning Centre

What is a Learning Centre? 

A learning centre is a place to provide a safe environment for children to enhance their learning. It aims to provide tutoring for all grade of students by qualified teachers in a favourable environment. It will offer support for homework after day classes and provide extra-curricular activity classes like song, dance, gaming, trying to build confidence and communication skills in the children. A learning centre is also a place where the elders of the community will be taught basic education and use of modern technology. We want to create in a learning centre somewhere the children will be provided a proper educational platform, more than that which the basic education in the village school can provide. We want them to dream of becoming doctors’ engineers etc. We also aim to educate the elders of the community about the modern era and its technology and help them learn about modern agricultural methods and technologies. We want to encourage a healthy life style and recreational and social activities.
