  2. Resources and Equipment: We ensure that disadvantaged students have access to the necessary resources, equipment, and learning materials to fully engage in their education. This may include books, technology, or other educational tools that support their learning journey.
  3. Enrichment Opportunities: We offer a range of enrichment opportunities, such as educational trips, extracurricular activities, or workshops, to broaden students' horizons and provide them with valuable experiences beyond the classroom.
