This activity involves children from first to eighth grade. There are nine tutoring groups in one school and two tutoring groups in Roma settlements in Belgrade(Zemun and Surcin).
For pupils from first to fourth grade, classes are organized to help with homework in Serbian language and mathematics
With the fifth to eight graders, tutors help the children gain an understanding of the content they are learning and make sure they complete assignments in all of their subjects.
One day a week is set aside for socializing, games and creative work. This time provides an opportunity for children to express their creativity, to hear a new story to act out, and to learn to foster friendships and overcome differences.
One of the great successes of this program are the students who accepted and utilized the help offered by “Bread of Life” and then went on to attend to attend high school. Help from the “Bread of Life" remains available for these students.
