Dropping out of the school
is a common phenomenon in the villages. And it is estimated
that 60% of the rural children dropout of the school before
completing their primary education especially those children
studying in the government schools. Various reasons are given.
However, one of the major reasons is that most of these children
are first generation learners and there is no support system
either in the school or at home. Therefore, Care and Share
to retain the children in the school and to help them to cope
up with the pressures of learning at the initial stages sponsors
supplementary education through tuition centres. It functions
in the evening hours (for two hours daily), each centre having
a teacher. It conducts 30 such centres having an enrollment
of more than 1,500 children with 35 teachers.
