SUCCESS STORY:

99 PUDHUPALAYAM

I am M. Aswini D/o. Murugesan.  I am prmoted from 6th  7th standard in Panchatyat Union Middle school, Vasur.

It is nearly 2 kms away from my own village (99-Pudhupalayam). Both my father and my mother (Kavitha – aged 35) working for the past 10 years in Thonimalai Quarry as a stone cutters.  We are living in a small thatched hut near the quarry.  In my hut no electricity and no safe drinking water.  Daily in the morning myself and my mother go for fetching water nearly one and half kilometers.  So I am unable to read and write and doing my homework in the morning is not possible.  The same situation is in the all my neibhourhood and my friends families.   So, many of my friends are slowly drop out from schools.  But I am very much interest in studying and I want to become an engineer in future.  So I tried to go to school regularly.  My parents’ earnings are not sufficient for our daily chore.  My father is a drunkard and most of their earning are goes to wine shop and medical shop.  So, I am unable to purchase my notebooks and school books in time is also not possible because of our breadwinning task are more than my educational expenses.

During March, Mr. M.Kalaivanan uncle(Director of SPHEED) came to our village and discuss regarding the situation of our families and he told that he will going to start tuition centers for us.  I am very much happy to hear the news from Kalaivanan uncle and also I shared it to my friends. Also I am waiting for start the centers. Later he again came to our village and discuss with all elders and in June 2012 he started the center.  Teacher Thenmozhi also came to all our houses and enlisted all our names who are going to school. Uncle distributed notebooks and textbooks to all of us.  Now my family’s huge burden are disappeared. I am very happy to study in the center On behalf of myself and my father and mother, I thank you very much for SPHEED organization and Global Giving, UK.

 

VASUR

I am V.Selvam.  I am studying 8th standard in Panchayat Union Middle School in Vasur. My father name is Venkatesan aged 50 and my mother name is Renuka, aged 40.  I have one brother Anand studying 4th standard and one sister Kalaiselvi studying 7th standard.  My father and my mother working in stone quarry in Thonimalai. In my hut, there is no electricity.  Myself, my sister and brother are reading and writing in front of the street light.  If it is failure, we are unable to read and write and unable to complete our homework.  Like us, all the children in our area are struggling to study.  Many of them are school drop outs and working as child labourers in the adjacent areas.  But we are trying to complete our school education and willing to go to higher studies and earn more income and enjoy our life in future.  I came to know that SPHEED organization going to start the tuition center in my village.  I eagerly am waiting for their arrival.  One day its staff and Director came to our village and discussed with our parents.  We are unable to spend more money for our education and so I gave my name and my bother and sister’s name and expressed to studying the tuition center.  Later he started the center and providing free education with experienced teacher, who was worked in the Matriculation school.  During the class time I raised my doubts and it was cleared by the teacher.  They also are providing nutritional food like sundal, milk, fruits to us. I am very happy to studying in the center. I am much thankful to the Director Kalaivanan uncle and Global Giving-UK.
