School is in Session, Supplies needed!

Just some of our wonderful students
Just some of our wonderful students

Thanks to donors like yourself along with our dedicated volunteers, classes have begun for our students. Over one hundred disabled students have joined us in Tamil language classes (a local dialect, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tamil_language) taught by our gifted teachers. Our volunteers have spent much time and effort over the last several months designing and developing a curriculum that could be adopted by our international tutors, and we look forward to reaping the rewards of our efforts! The students have been divided into small classes to maximize learning, and our volunteers have been working around the clock preparing new lessons and tending to the youth.

While the classes have been running smoothly, and the enthusiasm of our students is growing, we have noted some additional needs. Currently, we have plans for a fully operational computer center, so that our students can become computer literate. More immediate, though, is the need for comfortable and clean new uniforms and shoes for the students. An education should not be hindered by something as simple as footwear, so the Ann Foundation plans to provide the students with new shoes and clothing. You can help us in this effort by contributing even a small sum. Just $20 is enough to purchase four pairs of new school shoes, and $35 can purchase two sets of uniforms. Please help these children succeed in their education!

More students hard at work!
