Project Description

What is the proposed program?
Beyond Intent proposed to sponsor talented students for their Standard X (10th) education who is being coached at Sanjeev Tutorials. The students come from extremely poor background, and will not be able to afford private tuition fees, and thereby will not have any competitive edge in Standard X (10th) board exams.

Why is Beyond Intent sponsoring students at a private tuition / coaching class than at a school?
Beyond Intent decided to sponsor three students from Sanjeev Tutorials for the following reasons:
The short-listed students had excellent academic credentials in their respective schools for the last few years. This meant they are capable of hard work and dedication, if given the opportunity. For the standard X (10th) board exams, school education alone does not give them the competitive edge required. Sanjeev Tutorials does not use the learning by rote philosophy that is prevalent in other coaching classes Multi-media tools to help students visualise mathematical and scientific topics Hand-picked teachers that engage the students Excellent academic grades at Class X (10th) will ensure that these students obtain higher education Govt ensures free education till Class X (10th) for girls.For cash-strapped families, this is the final destination for the education of a girl child.

Why is Sanjeev Tutorials providing free coaching to a select students?

The selected students have excellent academic track records, but are from families with an annual income of $1200 (Rs. 60000) or less. These students can not afford coaching classes, which typically charge anywhere between $ 700 to $900 (Rs. 35000 to Rs. 45000) per annum. Alpha classes charges approximately $900 (Rupees 45,000) per annum per student. Without such a program, these students will be dependant on high school education for the extremely competitive Std. X examination. Rather than allowing such brilliant students to wither away, Alpha Classes is trying to level the playing field by giving them the coaching they need.

Will Beyond Intent or Sanjeev Tutorials be able to provide documentation for selected students?
Yes, Sanjeev Tutorials obtains relevant documents such as test results, marksheets, and school contact information durings its admission process. Copies of these documents will be maintained with Beyond Intent and furnished to the donor upon request.

How much does Sanjeev Tutorials charge as tuition fee per student?
Sanjeev Tutorials charge approximately $900 (~Rupees 45,000) per student as annual coaching fees to regular students. Under this program, the coaching will be offered for free to selected students.

How many students are enrolled in this program?
In 2012, Sanjeev Tutorials ran this program for the first time with an intention of supporting 15% of their students through this program. 11 out of a total of 85 students belonged to this program in the year 2012. All 11 students came from extremely poor backgrounds, and were selected based on excellent academic performance in Std VIII and Std. IX.

How can the donors track the student’s progress?
Sanjeev Tutorials will provide quarterly updates in form of results of pop-quizzes and monthly/quarterly tests. In addition, Beyond Intent will procure the results of tests administered by the school that the students are
attending.

What is the criteria for selection of deserving students ? Are there any minimum requirements to be qualified / considered for this benefit?
Selection criteria include the academic records of Std. VIII and Std. IX, and annual salary of the parents/guardians. There is no cut off grade or minimum salary benchmark for selection.

Is this program limited only to Mumbai, India?

Yes, logistical reasons limit this program to deserving students inMumbai, India.
