PROJECT WHY STORY

Project WHY was conceived to answer a series of queries :

Why do children from underprivileged backgrounds perform poorly?
What could be done to enhance their performance?
What skills should be taught to them to better their employment options?
How could this be achieved in a replicable community driven model?

Project WHY set out to create a sound model whereby quality education support in underprivileged areas, could be spearheaded by parents even if they were illiterate.

The idea was to empower the community to pool its resources and run
a sound support programme for its children.
