How Adore India Volunteers Work

School Students are confused in the changing modern set-up. They cannot communicate with parents and teachers freely because of generation gap and lack of time. Hence they get easily carried away by their own misguided friends and classmates. They lack the much needed guidance, counselling and mentoring. This gap can be filled by progressive and positive minded senior college students and young professionals. The seniors can relate with the younger students much better and help them improve themselves.  They can establish a friendly elder brother/sister rapport with the younger students.

Some Problems being faced by Students 

  1. Lack of awareness about importance of education
  2. Lack of knowledge about educational facilities and govt. aid
  3. Lack of academic guidance and tutoring
  4. Ever increasing gap between “bright” students and average students
  5. Lack of direction and role models
  6. Forced employment and drop-out
  7. Problems in the family and lack of care
  8. Lack of conducive academic environment in the family
  9. Break in studies resulting in permanent drop-out
