Supplementary Education Centres

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.
