We strongly believe in parental involvement in a child’s education. We constantly talk to the parents of Hope Scholars to reinforce the value of education for their child. This is done by three programs:
Parent teacher conference: Every three months, our staff talks to the parents of each Hope Scholar. It is mandatory for both the parents to attend this (of course in case of a single parents this does not apply). This is critical for parents to understand how their child is doing in the program, as well as understand the value of the program.
Coordinator meetings: Our coordinators meet the parents frequently to maintain a robust communication.
Founder town-halls: Whenever our founders visit a Project Hope city, we invite all the parents for a town-hall with the founders. This allows the parents to talk to the founders, ask their questions, share their feelings, and also observe the commitment of Singhal Foundation towards their children.
