School supplies for needy children

As a part of its mission to promote knowledge and encourage success, Cytel believes every child should have a positive start to the school year. By partnering with local boys and girls clubs to provide low income school children with backpacks and school supplies, the Cytel Cambridge and Waltham offices aim to empower them to approach the school year with a sense of enthusiasm for their personal growth. Here’s to giving all kids the resources for long term success!

 

Drum Circle with Swadhar’s MOHOR Project

The emotional stresses of financial, environmental and health related hardships have led to behavioral issues for many children in the Budhwar-peth Area of Pune. The MOHOR project in Budhwar-peth works with the children of Pune’s sex workers. Cytel partnered with the Swadhar Institute to organize twelve drum circles for children at MOHOR, aged 4 months to 13 years. The process channeled their emotions into a creative group exercise, cultivating greater concentration, teamwork and the ability to follow directions.

 

Scratch Teaching

Cytel’s educational vision promotes engaging program activities that bring computer science and technological education to a wider array of students. In a 21ST century economy, children not given the chance to learn coding at a young age, will face automatic disadvantages in the workplace and find it difficult to leverage technology for innovative problem-solving. Cytel aims to counter unequal access to technological and computer science education by encouraging its work force to volunteer in local schools.
