Educational Support

EducationA way out of poverty

Education-School Bag

Education is something every child should have a right to, the laws have changed in India with the introduction of the Right to Education act, although the mentality of many still needs to catch up. Family economics and lack of the parental education often excludes children from this basic right.

We provide a pathway which allows the children we care for into mainstream education and continue to support them by providing incentives and teaching materials as well as all their educational needs (Bags, books, uniforms, stationary, school and college fees).

Further funding will be required for teachers and to continue helping them up to college level but we hope that our support in providing informal lessonsm access to library books, computers and printers will ne helpful and increase their appetite for learning.

As well as normal lessons we also provide extra training in art, craft, sewing, cooking, sports and computer training.

A Way to excellence

Robert the founder of the Goa Outreach project has been helping children for over 20 years and his support has seen the children grow from strength to strength, seeing many children from 1st satard all their way through school and college.

Now in 2023 we are delighted to have had 4 students complete their Masters level education, more than 10 finish their Bachelors level with another 6 currently studying at Bachelor & Masters level.

2023 hs also been the highest number of students going directly into 11th standard (higher secondary/college), with all 14 students passing their SSC (10th Standard - Equivilent to GCSE in the UK) and going into higher education.

Unfotunately all this success in education does put a strain on our finances, but we hope with your support we can continue to help disadvanataged students excel and reach beyond the cycle of powverty that they were born into.

Acchelal, Attention to DetailAccehlal is now Accountant at Double Tree Hilton

Acchelal was our first long time student who completed their Masters Level education. He completed his Commerce course with a final grade “A” which is a long way from when he first joined as he achieved just 57% during his 10th standard. Due to his hard work and support he increase his grades and received Distinctions level grades at both 12th standard and Bachelors level

It has been a pleasure to help Acchelal through the years, he has always worked hard and has also been a great help to the charity providing his time and effort especially during the pandemic when he came to help us provide rations to hundreds of families around Mapusa, collecting and packing huge amounts of Rice, Dal and other dry rations.

He is now part of the 5 star hotel group, "Double Tree Hilton" as a finance associate and also one of the Trustees for the Indian Trust.
