The Children who have learning disability and border line IQ are given remedial classes by the expert teachers to answer their SSLC under Open Schooling. The Kannada medium students are trained to answer their exams through Karnataka Open School and the English medium children are helped to answer their exams under National Institute of Open Schooling. We are happy to note that around 60 children have completed their SSLC over the past 5 to 6 years . Further they are helped to do some professional courses in Mechanics, Plumbing, Electricals, computers etc. Then after their training they are also helped to fetch some small jobs, which will help them stand on their own.
