NOC and the Beaufort County School District (BCSD) have applied for state grants to help fund tutoring programs North of the Broad, thus expanding NOC’s outreach to families, especially children, living in underserved neighborhoods in northern Beaufort County. In an interview on WSAV Evening News on January 26, 2015, Dr. Narendra Sharma, founder and Chairman of NOC’s Board, said that NOC and BCSD will need to raise between $90,000 and $100,000 in order to begin a program in the city of Beaufort. He expressed hope that support from the Beaufort community will be forthcoming to supplement grant funding.
NOC and BCSD have scheduled a summit on February 27 to discuss next steps in the development and execution of this important project, including raising sufficient funds to implement a viable program.
