Character Building Classes

The definition of character-building in the dictionary is that strengthens certain good or useful traits in a person’s character especially self-reliance, endurance and courage. It has been said that character can be measured by what one would do if no one were looking. True character is instilled at a deep level so that positive behaviour is automatic.

Auro Foundation aims to address the pillars of good character through Net for Hope tailored character building classes which include facilitated conversations around topics such as integrity, happiness, love and relationships.

Guidance Sessions

At Auro, we strive to conduct several guidance and counselling sessions for our students. This includes entrepreneurship and finance management skills training sponsored by Barclays bank as well as several guest speakers coming in to empower and educate our students on various topics e.g. health and hygiene, HIV and AIDS, work place professionalism, integrity and first aid.

Teacher Training

Each year, three of our main teachers from three different departments undergo a capacity building course in their field of expertise. This investment has registered a tremendous improvement in both teaching and operations standards. Providing our teachers with professional skills and qualifications uplifts school academic standards and empowers our students.

Student’s internship

As part of Auro Foundation’s efforts to maximise our students’ educational experience, we enrol our students for one month fulltime placement internship in various companies. This exposes our students to the working world, provides them with hands-on skills and introduces them to potential employers. Our students are given the opportunity to apply their knowledge and be mentored and supervised by external professionals. All teachers also actively participate in the supervision of the students. At the end of the program, the companies provide a report with feedback on the student’s performance which together with the teachers’ review while supervising contributes to the student’s assessment report.

Job Placements

Auro Foundation is are committed that the theoretical education that we provide, is applied in practice and leads to employment for our students. We support them to find the right employer or with the support they may need start up their own business if that is their preference. We also provide some of our students small start-up funds where they are given the basic tools and materials such as sewing machines and wheel barrows, cement and measuring equipment where they have all the key things that they need to start their new lives.

Auro foundation has developed  strong relationships with a range of employers including garment manufacturers, construction companies and we actively support the process where our students can successfully be interviewed by the employers and gain the jobs. This project has been very successful and in our experience so far, about 85% of our graduating students find jobs, and 10% will start their own self sufficient business.

Mathematics support- JD Booster

Auro Foundation is working with Mr. Atul Jay Jobanputra, a U.K based educational consultant who created a program to enhance skills and develop confidence in mathematics of students.

The JD Booster package is a series of eight workbooks that cover how mathematics can be applied in practical terms. The program supplements the standard teaching of the DIT curriculum. The exercises, rather than being focused on specific topics, are all mixed which helps children learn when and how to apply the maths they learn in school – as well as providing constant reinforcement so nothing is forgotten.

Mr. Atul Jobanputra visited the Auro foundation and trained our teachers around how to deliver this curricula. JDB applies creative teaching method and is accompanied by unique modular workbooks that the students use during the classes.

The benefits extend way beyond the programme. Making sure students are strong in the fundamentals provides a firm foundation for success in the wider world beyond.
