VERTU Project

[Village Education Rendered through the Unemployed] After-school free tuition centers in remote villages

Project Description: An idle mind is the devil's workshop. It is not uncommon for young people to spend years waiting for a job in India. VERTU is a program they can work through until they find employment. Shalom Academy is now looking for unemployed graduates to work part time for 2 hours a day from Monday to Friday conducting classes for children in remote villages. We have allocated a budget of Rs. 2000 per month for this new venture. Our staff identifies candidates for evening tutoring in rural villages. The salary for tutors could vary from Rs. 500 to Rs. 1000 per month. At present, we are only looking for 3-4 part- time tutors. We are actively seeking sponsors for these tutors so that we can help many more rural villages.
