Eureka Child Foundation runs a Superkids program in a 100 villages in Tamil Nadu. A visit to one of the centers at Okkilipalayam a small hamlet near Malumichampatti, close to Eachanari Temple, outside Coimbatore was most gratifying.
Eureka hosts its after school program ( 5to 8 p.m.) in any available space, in this case, in the courtyard of a house of one of the teachers. The children are divided into 3 groups by age and class. Each group has a teacher ( 10th standard to plus two) who are trained by Eureka to use their material to teach the children in English, Tamil, Maths and Science.
Eureka has created a variety of material to teach the children in innovative ways.

This is a very laudable effort and its done with little fanfare. Eureka has been reaching out to rural children for the past 12 years . They are certainly doing a marvellous job
