Project Type
 After school support centers provide supplemental learning to compensate for poor quality education provided in the government school. In some cases they offer evening classes to child laborers. These centers have been fairly effective in increasing the pass rates for the standard examinations held in 10th and other grades, and in ensuring that children stay in school and not drop out. Children benefit from more individual attention and sensitivity to their community problems in these after school tuition centers. In many cases, providing education is part of a wider community intervention by the partner group.
