The people working in the stone quarries are migrated folks from different parts of south India like Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh. These people will keep moving from one place to another depending upon the availability of work. This also affects the continuity of education of their children.
Academic and Career Support
Lots of supportive programs like home work guidance, computer classes and special coaching classes for academically weak children, exam preparations etc are conducted to find the talents in the children to build their carrier towards their areas of interests. Workshops to give exposure towards various job opportunities available in various fields, job orientation interviews with professionals and role models working in different fields etc are given to enrich the children with various opportunities available.
The children of Planet Hope are exposed to various extracurricular activities to refresh them and to find the hidden talents of the children other than studies. Though are weak in their performance in the school they are very good in extracurricular activities like sports and games, arts, yoga etc.
Attitude building for better academic performance
Attitude is the major element in the performance of a person in any area they are put into. If the children are not guided with the right attitude, they cannot make success whatever environment and inputs are made for them. The children from the stone quarry background are coming with different kinds of psychological and emotional problems since they are born and brought up in a tough situation. They will be having issues with the parental care, child abuses, de motivations, lack of role models, aptitude problems, learning disorders and other growth related problems. Thus, the attitude building plays an important role in building the carrier of a child.
Job orientation programs
Every job has got its own dignity and value. There are lots of job opportunities available in our society. One has to choose their job according to their taste and aptitude. Keeping this philosophy in mind our children are given exposure to different job fields like bakery, flower shops, hospitals, colleges and other working areas. The children will be guided to make interviews with the people working in different fields so that they will have an opportunity to interact with them and understand the hard core realities in it.
