Starting early 2020 and still continuing as of August 2021, the C-19 Pandemic has caused immense misery across the globe. The various facets of life have been affected significantly and the life of a school or college going child was no exception. With schools and colleges shutdown, there was very little option for the educational institutions but to conduct the academic program online. Confined to their houses, the beneficiaries of Ascend continued their academic journey by attending these online classes and actively participating in them. The mentors at Ascend did their best in keeping in touch with the beneficiaries during these challenging times and ably supported them with their counseling apart from monitoring their academic progress. It is the fond hope of Ascend that this pandemic draws to an end as early as possible.
A summer camp was conducted for school students in the age group of 12-17 years from May 6 to May 17 2019. This opportunity was extended to children supported by Ascend Educational Foundation as well.
To ensure that the lesser privileged children also get the exposure as those in the higher strata of society so that they can also be equally competitive when they face the corporate world in future.
Towards the end of the two weeks’ course, students were given a participation certificate.
A summer camp for school going students from standard VII to XI was held from April 30th to May 11th 2018. This opportunity was extended to children supported by Ascend Educational Foundation as well.
The duration of the program was 40 hours and there were 6 children who participated in the program.
