HUGGS Study Centre (HSC)

HUGGS Study Centre

Many HUGGS’ students live with their families in one-room homes, where the furniture is often just one bed and a cooking stove – hardly the ideal setting for focused study.  Often, the front door step is the only spot where light from a street lamp shines just enough to read a textbook.

The HUGGS Study Centre (HSC) was set up in 2011 to give students a space where they can study and do their homework.  The HSC also provides a base for HUGGS' students to congregate, share, learn and gain the support necessary to excel in their studies.  What started as a single room with one office computer and a few chairs has now expanded to include a computer lab, a small library, visual aids and other facilities for the increasing number of students. 

The Centre is open from 4 pm to 8 pm Monday through Saturday. The HUGGS Coordinator is available at the HSC to counsel students, oversee the tutors, and administer various student support services.

Tutors are present at the HSC to guide students through homework and to conduct tutorials.  

HUGGS Student

HUGGS Canada is a registered Canadian charity, empowering youth through education in South East India. HUGGS focuses on promising young people who have the ability to excel in education, but are without the resources to study beyond Grade 10.

Thanks to our generous donors, we sponsor young people in Visakhapatnam (Vizag), to complete their secondary and post-secondary education. Students are selected based on financial need, academic ability and family encouragement.

Today more than 30 HUGGS graduates are working in their communities in careers including nursing, teaching, engineering, finance and computing.
