After School/Homework Club (ASCH) for children aged between 5-14 years of age.

The primary aim is to support and nurture each child’s individuality and personality development by catering to their individual needs. The club aims to provide learning support to those disadvantaged children who have very little help at home due to the low literacy level of parents/guardians.

Children/young people have a wide variety of needs and characteristics that may require special consideration – these include age, race, ethnicity, religion, culture and social difference. Nari Kallyan Shangho (NKS) endeavours to provide a quality care to school going children, and meet their needs to support them in their physical and mental development. This, the project strives to do by providing stimulating activities in the NKS After School/Homework Club (ASHC), and by helping children with their home work. Please contact NKS if you need more details.
