Tuition Support



Tuition Support

Arpana’s programs were set up in 2002 to enable school age children in Molar Bund to complete their schooling and have opportunities to attain their full potential. 

The government provides schools for all children. However, slum children soon get left behind as they have no one to guide them when they do not understand what they hear in school. By the time the child is in 4th or 5th standard, most disadvantaged children have given up trying to learn. They drop out into a life of deprivation and, often, fall into anti-social activities. 

To ensure that children of disadvantaged families are being educated, Arpana set up a tuition support program in the community centres allotted to them by the Government. Arpana teachers provide assistance in Mathematics, Science, Social Science, Hindi, English, and Communicative English to children who are either attending school, or had dropped out. 

Arpana’s main objective is to keep these children in mainstream schooling. Over the years, Arpana is proud that its children in Molar Bund have achieved recognition including top positions in their classes, prizes for debate, speaking, reading, sports, cleanliness and many other awards.

Arpana's Community Development Centre in Gautampuri provides tuition support to over 980 students from primary, middle and 10 + 2 level. They are being nurtured in a climate which fosters development at all levels - physical health, emotional and academic.


Remedial Teaching: The Senior Students of Arpana have been trained to coach youngsters who are lagging behind their schoolwork. They worked daily with 4 or 5 children in Maths and Hindi, not only helping them academically, but developing a sense of giving back to the society.


Teachers training:  Teachers trainings are carried out time to time by different volunteers and professionals to help the teachers identify areas of learning difficulties and then to create appropriate teaching methodologies and aids to overcome it and to enhance learning.


Parent Teachers Meeting: Parent Teacher Meetings were organized twice a year to synergize the efforts of teachers and parents towards the holistic development of the students. The objective was to synergize the efforts of teachers and parents towards holistic development of the students. The average total PTM attendance was 97.63 %.
