  • Need

    Need

    * This project will increase the Students confidence in written and spoken English, numeracy and Science.
    * Increase in spoken in English encourages better communication and engagement of the Students in the Schools and wider Society.
    * Better understanding of Mathematics and Science increases the zeal in the participating Children to enjoy education and staying in Schools, reducing truancy in Schools.

    Solution

    * By having a maximum class number of only 15, giving the Teachers chance to attend to the Students on one-on-one basis. This improves the Students understanding of the subjects taught.
    * By holding the classes in an educational institution, with up to date information technology equipments.
    * Ensuring the Children understand the subjects by giving them works after each lesson and mock examinations quarterly.

    Risk

    There is a risk that some of the Students may pull out before end of the project. We have dealt with this by working closely with the Parents and the children to understand why they sometimes do not enjoy the subjects, understanding their reasoning helps the Teacher work better with the Student.
