Rural and Remote After-School Care Program
In coordination with the "Angel Lighting Project" organized by the Ministry of Education, Novatek Education Foundation provides assistance for students from underprivileged families by offering services such as after-school courses and dinner. With the after-school care programs as well as loving companionship, children may aimlessly wander around no more. Instead, they are provided with a stable, loving, and nurturing environment for learning and growth.
