PARC Learning Centres
PARC operates and manage its own schools (daycare, pre-schools, primary school, and secondary school) such that when our children graduate from nursery school they can join primary school and when they graduate from primary school they can move on to secondary school to ensure that they remain under our care as we continue to monitor, mentor, and support them through all our integrated programs. These schools also double to also provide after school tutoring (AST) centres, functional adult literacy (FAL) centres, and local hub for the community (children, teachers and parents). Through these schools, orphans get FREE education while other needy children get SUBSIDIZED education.
Supporting Vulnerable Children
PARC uses an innovative holistic model to ensure that orphans and vulnerable children (OVCs) get an education – go to school, stay-in school, and finish school. PARC actively look for people from all over the world to sponsor children who struggle to raise school fees and scholastic materials for their study. We don’t get sponsorship directed toward individual child because we work to strengthen the whole community, so all children can thrive!. For every child eternally SPONSORED, another 5 children on our program who do not have any help from their guardian or a sponsor will also indirectly benefit. Also for every 5 children that pay FULL SCHOOL FEES at our schools, 1 vulnerable child gets half-fees scholarship. In addition, we provide school based nutritious meals to all children who attend our schools.
Seeing education as the key to economic development, PARC supports other existing learning establishments (both public and private schools) working together with the local community to improve, consolidate and monitor educational opportunities. By addressing barriers students face, we can increase the impact education has on their future. To this, we are implementing various inter-related interventions directed towards creating better and safer the learning environment, increasing access to learning materials, and improving the quality of learning.
