Supporting Educational Institutions in Rural Areas

While helping individual students is rewarding, nothing compares to the feeling we get when we support an educational institution that in turn helps hundreds of students. In late 2009, we started helping out a goverment high school at Akkur, Nagapattinam district to provide a teacher to teach Electric Domestic Appliances. This is one of the areas that can provide quick employment opportunities for the students or enable them to start on their own. Since then, we have been supporting the salary requirements of the teacher to impart the students with right skills.

There are numerous schools in rural areas that need support from the society. There are schools with no proper water facilities or even basic infrastructure, with poor student teacher ratios that need support. If you are interested in supporting such a rural institution that can help hundreds of students and children in the area, do get in touch with us. We will be glad to work with you.

Our support for the mess fees of 2 students also continues. The Salem Medical College student receives support for mess fees, and we have also started supporting a Computer Science Engineering student at Bargur engineering college.
