The After-school Community Learning Centre is an education initiative, which provides flexible approach to learning through a range of individualised and small group programs to assist students to effectively improve upon their their learning deficiencies or to supplement their learning.
e.g. Each day, a number of students in grades 1-12 spend their afternoons at a After School CLC in aq village at the outskirts of Dharamshala. They get help with homework, learn wellness strategies and explore art, science, literature, and culture through hands-on projects.
Our After-School Learning Initiatives and Community Learning Centre caters for rural and rurban children aged four to eighteen dedicated to:
- support students, who aren’t effectively learning within their formal school.
- offer a flexible approach to learning through a range of individualised programs that assist students to complete school education and access pathways to work or further study.
- helping learners achieve the best grades possible in various subjects including English, Maths, Science, Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning through personalised and tailored one-to-one tutoring.
- providing students with a realistic pathway to connect, engage and be inspired by their education.
At the After-school Community Learning Centre, we focus on providing students with a realistic pathway to connect, engage and be inspired by their education.

After School Community Learning Centre—provides activities for children (varying age from 6 to 15 years) in the school or local community are during at / after school hours.
This is in response to everyone seeking children and adolescents learning new skills at / after school. The aim of the At / Out of / After School Program (ASP/Fun Clubs) is to provide the children a space for educational and creative activities.
Games are often focused around positive recreation, awareness, and life skills. We also incorporate EduCARE India’s rural sustainability principles, SWASH, into the ASP/Fun Clubs once a month. The greater village community is involved with larger activities for special events, such as Children’s Week in November.
Our belief is that if the young people are exposed to this kind of creative and informal learning through Children’s At / Out of / After School Program, it will bring out some positive impact among not only for a positive self-development but also impacting some of them who will have the sensitivity and capacity to be youth volunteers for local leadership in sustainable development in the years to come.
