At Parikrma, children are provided with free CBSE (excellent English medium), high quality education, three meals a day, comprehensive healthcare and family support to enable a supportive and stable home environment. This model is known as our ‘Circle of Life’ or ‘360 Degree Development Model’.
We believe in complete end-to-end assistance to a child from age 5 to 25. Through the e2e or the end-to-end model, children receive education right from kindergarten to college. It doesn’t stop there. Children further receive scholarships and are mentored through professional college until they find jobs and become financially independent. This journey is what makes Parikrma a complete program, an effort to transform the life of a child by enabling him or her to break out of the cycle of poverty.
Given the nature of the backgrounds the children come from and the intense pressure to start earning a living as soon as they finish school, it is important to be with the child through this final leg of the journey before being placed in a job. We also provide scholarships to children to pursue college or vocational training.
It’s not easy for individuals from difficult backgrounds to blend in and flourish without difficulties in a new professional environment. We offer students support through professional counselling on various nuances of professional life – including coping with new environments, team-work and leadership development.
Parikrma works closely with our corporate sponsors through employee engagement programs. Employees come to our schools and develop their own abilities to get the best out of others - absolutely critical for success in the modern workplace. Our volunteer mentors help our students understand the path to achieving their dreams. They provide motivation, strengthen academic performance, improve social interaction, work on communication skills and, most critically, provide focus and a clear direction for the future.
