Amazing story of a Nagore nursing student
This boy faced some health problems right after the +2 practical exam and was hospitalized. So, he could not attend the public exam. He later appeared for supplementary exam. He secured around 1050 and got admission for BDS, but chose B.SC Nursing as job opportunities are very bright. He is in the first year now.
His uncle, a school teacher was paying his fees and mess bill. Since his uncle's daughter has also joined Engineering, he is not in a position to support him now. He is an amazing boy and we decided to help him for his mess bills. HM trust sent DD for Rs. 10000 towards his 4 months mess bill on March 28th.

Inspiring story of a Ramanathapuram girl
She secured 977/1200 in HSC - Tamil 180, English 134, History 175, Economics 166, Commerce 141 and Accountancy 181 and got admission to D.TEd in District Institute of Education and Training, Vadalur in Cuddalore district.
Her mother had planned to send her to Tirupur for a job in a factory as they could not afford college fee. However, her friend, who also belongs to the same community and is doing social work through Safai Garamchari Andolan (eradicating manual scavenging) sought the help of another social worker Murugesh, who helped in paying the initial fees and hostel fees so far from Aug 2011 to Sep 2012.
Now he is not in a position to help further and she has been sent out the hostel. Our Helping Minds member Bala brought this request to Helping Minds. HM trust has provided Rs. 13215 towards her hostel fees and exam fees and she has joined the hostel again and continuing her studies.

Realizing dreams one step at a time
Not to be outdone, the BE-CSE student of Anna University from Namakkal has scored 81% in his 7th semester.
We are very proud of both the students - their dedication and commitment to see their families uplifted economically is amazing. We are glad we had a small part to play in shaping their futures and are grateful to our patrons for that.

Remember the MasterCard advert that adds a price to everything and in the end claims that happiness seen on loved one's face is priceless? At Helping Minds, we experienced it through Mr. Muppi when he distributed uniforms to the kids of two of the NCLP schools.
Back in June 2011, we decided to help the NCLP schools as much as we can. There are around 21 NCLP schools in Coimbatore district itself, and they all need support from the society in one way or other. They have not received uniforms from the government yet and had seeked help from Helping Minds. 2 weeks back, Muppi went to Coimbatore along with the NCLP Coordinator and Field Officer, purchased uniforms and chocolates and distributed them to the school kids.
While the visit and the deed of distributing the uniforms is insignificant in itself, but what we experienced there was more than encouraging. This is what Mr. Muppi has to say about the kids - "These kids were once toiling as labors in textile mills, workshops and what not. Today, there is an apparent enthusiasm for life in them. One can see hope for the future in their eyes when they come to school. Projects like NCLP are commendable efforts by the government to uplift the poor through education As a society, we need to support the government in projects like NCLP. We had planned to visit at least 3 schools today, but we could visit and distribute the uniforms to only 2. Had there been more volunteer support we would have been able to visit more schools and help the students in every small possible way that we can"
You can see some of the pictures taken at these schools here
If we were to borrow lines from MasterCard, we say this - "Uniforms to NCLP school students - Rs. 20,000. Opportunity to put a smile on their faces - Priceless"
Do you want to experience it first hand? Do let us know in comments, we are looking for volunteers to provide more support to NCLP schools.
