"The centre helps me think differently. The students who struggle in regular class learn the same subject easily here."
- Swathi, 10, India

Sponsorship means possibility…

It means children, aged six to 16, are accessing new ways to learn through creative learning centres, which provide space to analyze, evaluate, question and, most importantly, innovate.
