Fostering an environment for learning
Momentum Schools (Village and Slums) increase the opportunity for students to fulfill their dreams through education that is hard to come by in these areas due to financial and impoverished family limitations. Momentum Schools provide hope and the students learn art, history, technology, english, dance, math and science. Our goal is to inspire students to become learners investing in their future and impacting their community and the world.
