ARPANA’S PROGRAM AT MOLARBUND, NEW DELHI
Due to high student teacher ratio and lack of guidance, slum children really struggle to cope with all that is taught in their Government schools. By the time the child is in 4th or 5th standard, most disadvantaged children have given up trying to learn. To ensure that children of disadvantaged families are being educated, in 2002, Arpana set up a tuition support program in the Molarbund slum resettlement colonies of South Delhi.
ARPANA AT MOLARBUND PROVIDES:
Guidance is provided for 1500 students as they struggle to understand lessons taught in Government schools, as well as coping with the challenges of living in their environment.
All 42 students passed the 12th class in 2019. 17 are attending University and 25 are taking other courses.
