Residential Training Program
The Residential Training Camp (RTC) program

The Residential Training Camps program is an intense, focused and interactive camp, held for durations of 1-2 weeks. SLF sponsors the participants, usually from rural areas, and provides boarding and lodging for the duration of the camp. A varied set of activities is planned from physical education, sports and games to personal development, communication, arts and national heritage where children participate in a vigorous, yet lively environment. The program aims at helping the children discover their potential and develop social skills required to succeed. To date more than 600 children benefited from this program.

Literacy, progress and, in general, success in life are all results of a good educational background. Despite its obvious benefits, a formal education is not universally accessible to every child. Education has been and still remains a luxury, a luxury often unattainable for the disadvantaged sections of our society.

In our ever busy and demanding world, it is sometimes necessary to stop and consider the plight of people less fortunate than us. In particular, of underpriviledged children deprived of an education in rural and semi-urban India.

SLF's goal is to provide the opportunity of primary education to the underpriviledged children and to prepare them for a productive life.
