Year 2014 Updates
While the Government is the primary responsible for the school toilets, we are making our small efforts so that the children are not penalized for the inactivity/delay from Govt.
Heartfelt Thanks for the many members who donate to Helping Minds regularly. These donations are the only reason enabling us to take up such activities.
The below news article mentions that there are 3 crore students in India who don't have toilet facilities as per a research from UNICEF.
Remarkable results from this Govt school (3 students scored marks above 1100 out of 1200)
Press articles about the 100% pass results at Renganathampettai, Karur Dt
HM Trust paid her 1st year diploma college fees. As she had a arrear in one of the first year papers, we didn't pay her 2nd year fees, but set a target of 80% to get our financial support for the next semester. She then scored 79% in her 2nd year, so we paid her 3yr term fee.
Now she has got a job through campus placement - for a pay of 6k to a company named Saravana Spinning Mills/ Dindugal. It really doesn't matter how many students get job from her dept / what pay etc, but for her it should be a great moment. Hope she works for a long period and take care of her family well.. After gaining some experience, chances of getting a job locally in her native (Rajapalayam) shouldn't be that difficult.
It gives immense happiness to share this great news with you friends. Kudos to all the members who continue to support HM trust through voluntarism and finanical support.
