3 R Foundation Takes The Challenge Of Accelerated Teaching To Bhutanese Refugee Youth
The American Vivekananda Academy (AVA) has opened its doors to students, including youth members of Bhutanese refugee community who need to be in accelerated learning program for completing their high school diploma.
AVA has announced its first Car Raffle of a 2011 Mercedes Benz C300 (Sport or Sedan) to raise funds to support the school, particularly to scholarship to deserving refugee students. "Providing education to young is the highest gift that can be given", says Bhusan Dixit, Director AVA at Hudson, NH.
The car raffle, approved by town and state authorities is a major effort to raise funds to provide scholarships to underprivileged students of the American Vivekananda Academy in Hudson and Manchester, NH for Fall 2011 and upcoming semesters.
Donations are $100 per ticket. Donations are tax-deductible and each ticket offers 1 in 2,500 chance to own a Mercedes Benz. Drawing will be held on December 26, 2011 at AVA Manchester Campus, 582 Chestnut Street, Manchester, NH, provided that 500 or more tickets are sold by then.
AVA is the educational wing of the Three R’s Foundation, a leading promoter of the SALT (Super Accelerated Learning Theory) education model in the United States and abroad. AVA has been a private school since 2001, and is now registering students this fall in LEVEL 4, a two year high school program in AVA's Hudson Campus.
AVA in the past has served students from the inner city of Boston, rural areas in New Hampshire, and from different ethnic groups of Nepal, India, and the Caribbean. The SALT school model initiated by the Three R’s Foundation is supported by the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth through an endowment fund to evaluate and promote this learning theory.
