Bridge Transition Courses

Lessons are prepared for children to study subjects like elementary science, geography, social sciences and English. The lessons last for four to six months and are designed to prepare children who are interested in furthering their education through the formal school system, and even to go on to college. Every year, 25-30 boys and girls attend these courses. After attending the bridge transition courses, the children take a written test and join class 6 in the mainstream education system. Over the past 30 years more than 4,000 children—including 1,250 girls—have chosen to continue their formal education.
