Binar is not just a basketball club. We aim to help our players and community fulfil their potential in all areas of their lives including academic pursuits and employment. We believe that education is the key to opportunity. Our homework classes started after identifying that our students are not always comfortable raising their hand and asking questions in their school environment.
These classes grew from a handful of adult volunteers helping out at Adam's house to involving specialised tutors where children can receive individualised attention, assessment of learning difficulties, help with homework and gain confidence in their own abilities. We also now include art and cultural activities.
WHAT WE DO
