After School Program

"Igniting Potential, Nurturing Minds, Shaping Futures: The Heartbeat of Sinomlando's After School Program"

Our After School Program is more than just an academic support system; it’s a sanctuary where every child is valued and encouraged to dream big. We provide a structured framework that integrates academic tutoring with social and emotional support, creating a non-judgmental space that fosters a growth mindset among the youth. Recognizing the unique challenges faced by our participants, including loss of parental figures and exposure to violence, we tailor our services to meet their comprehensive needs.

"The tutors make the time to understand our struggles with the subjects. I did not even know what to apply for, now I will go to CAO (Centre for Applications Office), get an application form, and apply."
