Y Gro provides support in the field of education for children suffering from poverty. The program commenced over 15 years ago in Jaffna and has been a blessing for many young children.
An innovative Math remedial program from grades 6 – 9 and a special GCE O/level examination coaching class enabled the program to be very successful.
The GCE O/level results were released in 2015, and out of the 22 students who sat the exam, 19 passed the exam. 17 students sat the GCE A/level exam and 8 passed the exam Except for a few students, most of the students have progressed well in key subjects -Tamil, Math, science and history. Based on a close monitoring system, individual counselling is given to the weak students.
We are planning to provide support for 110 students. 7 students will sit for the GCE A/level exam and 17 will sit for the GCE O/level exam in 2016.
Due to the very poor performance in English in the Northern district, a unique English speech and reading program is being introduced for 20 children in grades 3 – 5
