Facilitating Continuance of High School Education
HEADSTART is an initiative to address children dropping out of school at higher primary stage and assist a smooth transition from the primary to secondary stages of education. It strives to ensure continuity till the 10th grade for the vulnerable and underserved children.

While the elementary education is almost free in the schools run by Government, the story is different when it comes to secondary education. So bringing the children to schools is only a part of the battle, while ensuring continuity of their education is the real challenge.
HeadStart aims to assist, mentor and monitor children who are susceptible to dropping out of school at the Higher Primary stage. The programme strives to reach the most vulnerable groups like children rehabilitated from Child Labour, orphans, with single parent, disabled etc. - from dire socio economic conditions who pursued their higher primary schooling from a government school
The underlying driver of the programme is to ensure that children both continue into high school and are provided an opportunity to join a school of their choice in the neighbourhood without being discouraged by the financial liabilities.

A major constituent of the HeadStart programme is the Education and Development facility the children can avail. Here they are provided with curriculum assistance, life skills, library and laboratory facilities, interaction with subject experts, computer and spoken English education and exposure trips apart from counseling and personal mentoring.
The programme is strengthened by volunteer-involvement to mentor and track the performance of the participant students and motivate them through committed financial support for 3 years of High School Education.
