Several students who have come to class 8th or 9th without the level of learning required for that class. They are far below the learning level for that class, sometimes even having difficulty in writing correctly and reading well. The schools are required to pass them in the lower classes so they are just moved from class to class and when they reach the higher classes they are overwhelmed, feel ashamed, and drop out. The teachers tend to focus on the better students and no one pays attention to these students.

The goal of this project is to help these students gain the confidence that they can also learn learn the basic knowledge of their class. Often the main thing that these students need is care and individual attention, and that is what this project will focus on.
Help students not doing well academically feel confident that they can also learn, and help them gain the knowledge expected in their class.
