We’ll build a “Study Place” accessible for the villages focusing one village where kids will be coached relevant to their academic books. And, works toward strengthen the self development to cope with the environment. The permanent presence, continue visit & plan to pass knowledge to the senior children to take responsibility of “Study Place” will solve the problem that children are facing that even if they wanted to share, they know that it is worthless to share their problem to their parents.

Moreover, the primary goal is to positively develop their capacity to understand the importance of education. Awareness to the parents’ll be another activity that Study Place’ll provide. Moreover, villagers have recognized the importance of education. Since the villages are settled in a geographical area where walking is the only appropriate way, based on our value ‘regularity’
