After-school tuition is an off-shoot of the Family Support Project (FSP) and began in 2006.  Many children from FSP families had a poor record of school attendance, so it was decided to provide extra tuition in the evenings.  Three nights a week, from 6.30 – 8.30pm, some 30 or so children meet in the Pentecostal Church to do homework and prepare for exams.  The scheme has proved very successful, because children who were previously behind educationally have gone on to complete 10th class, with several entering training in nursing, carpentry, tailoring, driving, etc.    Two of the tutors are themselves from FSP families and benefitted from AST.    £15 a month pays for the cost of tutors for this programme.
