Chudar Education is an Initiative of the Eureka Education Foundation where we strive to make a difference by providing quality education to financially challenged children through volunteering.
After-school Center Program
Chudar has 60+ centers across Chennai and in remote villages across Chengalpattu and Tiruvannamalai districts. Our tutors teach the students Science, Maths and English with the help of practical learning methods devised by our subject matter experts. We have reached more than 1700 children through this program.
Our centers provide a flexible approach to learning through individualized programs to help our students improve or supplement their learning. Our primary goal is to equip the children with knowledge so that they can choose their own paths in the future.
Chudar Champs Program
Avishkaar Survey (June 2021) highlighted the concerns of gender disparity in STEM. The survey found that 81% of parents with male children feel that STEM is vital for their child, as compared to 68% of parents with female children. Chudar Champs Project (STEM for Girls) aims to rectify this gap.
The objective of the program is to inculcate a scientific temper among girl children in Government Middle and High schools in Tamil Nadu. The students are encouraged to look beyond the school textbooks and develop a love for science through curiosity, observation and deduction from science experiments and hands-on projects.
The project includes hands-on activities and experiments that improves understanding of the students. The program uses real life examples to help the children correlate to their daily lives. The experiments and activities are specifically chosen to encourage independent and logical thinking and build creativity.
School Intervention Program
Our school intervention program focuses on government and aided schools. Our resource persons take classes in Maths and English for middle school students with the help of our blended learning methods (digital + in-person classes). This greatly helps the students in improving their understanding. We also conduct events regularly at our intervention schools to encourage learning amongst the students.
Community Learning Program
We started various courses for the children apart from their curricular activities. We have volunteers who take these classes for the students on a regular basis. Volunteers from the US take Canva design classes and Python classes through Zoom while volunteers from Chennai have taken art and robotics classes in person.The students enjoy these classes and always look forward to the new things they learn
Chudar and its local volunteers continue to reach out to the most deserving and needy families across 10 different slum areas in Chennai with groceries, sanitary kits, reusable cotton masks, and sanitizers through a decentralized model of distribution adhering to the Government norms.
