"Learning humility, purity and simple-living from those who don't take too much from the earth...
Targetting the problems of hunger, disease and oppression that sadden their lives...
Inspiring in each other trust, confidence and support for one another..."

The Eureka SuperKidz Project provides innovative, village centered education centers in marginalized regions of TN, with the goal of delivering quality education to the children of the poorest of families. This program has a strong focus on quality content/curriculum, teacher training, evaluation outcomes, co-curricular enrichment activities, individualized attention to each student and parental involvement.





Eureka SuperKidz program was launched in 200 villages in July 2010, scaled up to in 717 villages reaching 35,000 children by April 2011. An external evaluation agency (NCIS) evaluated the impact of SuperKidz program on Math, Tamil and English skills over the course of a year. Evaluation conducted in 30 villages, covering 3268 children from pre-school till Std 6. Large improvement indicated from the baseline in all standards. For Std 1-2, improvements fell short of aspirational targets, highlighting the need for a sharper focus on Std 1-2 in the coming year.





In 2011, the goal is to scale up the program to reach 75000 children in 1000 of the most marginalized villages in 59 blocks across Tamil Nadu. Funding has been requested from the Bay Area to continue the SuperKidz program in the 10 villages that were sponsored in 2010. In addition, funding is requested to augment the existing program in 3 of the 10 villages sponsored by the Bay Area chapter, to include the construction of classroom centers and the development of libraries and KG programs.
