Program After School Support

In India, there is a great need for after school support for underprivileged children as research says that many of them with low socio-economic background have many issues such as Girl child domestic burden, children indulging in criminal activities, not getting healthy environment, malnourishment, child labour activities, low quality education due to expensive private tuition, etc. Thus, to counter all these issues and help these children PASS – Program after School Support was initiated by BCC to increase the standard of quality education and nutrition in students. Every year we reached 350 plus kids by providing them the quality of education and nutrition for the holistic development of the child. Baroda Citizens Council took up an enormous challenge of promoting and catalyzing universal education among the underprivileged children of selected slum communities of Vadodara city. 10 PASS classes are being run under the flagship of Baroda Citizens Council which strives to raise the living standard and educational level of the growing generation. There are around 350 beneficiaries. PASS focuses holistic development of the child.
