Our education NPO partners focus on the improvement of student learning outcomes, holistic development of the individual as well as the more difficult areas of directing philanthropic support of students that are differently abled. Program focus ranges from remedial teaching and learning support to students through after school programs at the Government and municipal schools, teacher training programs aimed at improvement of teaching outcomes and delivery in the classroom, curriculum and modules that develop problem solving and improved application of theoretical concepts. Our NPO partners continue to review and tailor their programs in order to move towards a more sustainable framework of their program that can in time be transferred and embedded in the government schools.
