Who are we
For the last 24 years, since 1984, CHILD has lent itself to the cause of Tamil schools to help them regain their rightful place, identity and self-respect in the National education system. CHILD’s engagement has helped to transform the study culture of Tamil school children and forge an amiable working partnership between parents, teachers and the community in many Tamil Schools. Meanwhile, the long-term association of 25 years with Tamil Schools has afforded CHILD the opportunity to study the Tamil school problems comprehensively and test several different remedial modalities to improve student performance.
The major objectives of CHILD are to help less advantaged children realise their potential and have the courage to dream; and to foster understanding and cooperation among children of all cultures in the spirit of love, compassion and reverence. CHILD achieves these objectives by providing educational assistance for the disadvantaged and less fortunate needy children and youths, irrespective of race, religion or creed. CHILD also assists Tamil School children to attain parity with children in National Schools in academic performance.
PRESCHOOL is designed to address some issues in Tamil schools. Early childhood education among this low socio-economic group is vital to give them a good head start and prepare them for primary education. Tamil schools lack preschools. If shortage of more than 750 trained teachers in Tamil schools adds to the problem the latter is further compounded by the increasing enrolment in Tamil schools.
Comprehensive Integrated Tamil School Program (CITS) attempts to address the issues of Tamil schools. There is a lack of parental support for many poor Tamil children studying in Tamil schools. The high failure rate is largely due to poor parental care, concern and support. CITS is specifically designed to compensate for these deficiencies.
Reading and Writing (RAW) helps in attaining early skills in English language and improve its proficiency. Project Inspire help addresses the problems faced by slow learners.
CARE was designed to help these students to maintain their grades and at the same time provide them with skills to be leaders of the community. Many students with good grades in the UPSR fail to take advantage when they leave Tamil schools and join National Schools in form one.Learn More
