Students at the Isha Vidhya schools always look
forward for the Arts & Crafts hours.  Especially,
the Kindergarten students are very enthusiastic
about attending these classes, as the classes
give them fun experience through hands on
work.

Cuddalore Kindergarten students were provided
with clay in their Arts & Crafts class. They were
asked to make cups & saucers out of it. The
students participated in the activity joyfully and
made several sets of cups-saucers.

Shares Art and Craft teacher Mrs. Jayasudha:
"Whenever our children are in art and craft class,
they enjoy very much. Clay model activity is really
an interesting class for them. It enables their finger
coordination and strength. I felt very happy when
I took the class. I taught them step by step process
and they followed the steps properly and silently.
They did the model of cup and saucer excellently.
It proved an exciting, entertaining and enjoyable
class for them. Their tiny fingers worked magically
and I feel proud to be an art and craft teacher."

We are attaching pictures of the activity with this
report for your viewing.

If you would like to contribute to the Arts & Crafts
section of the Isha Vidhya schools, you can consider

Sports is a great activity to develop many skills
and hone the talents.  If young children play and
practice, they gain physical strength, mental
toughness, dexterity, team spirit and many admirable
qualities!  Sports is an integral part of Isha Vidhya
education, and students from all schools participate
in competitions too, and many times they win prizes!

On 25th of June, Silambam competition was conducted
at Adiyamaankottai in Dharmapuri district.  20 students
from the Dharmapuri school participated in the competition
under weight category and 14 of them won prizes!

We are excited to share with you the pictures, list of winners,
and sharing from a student.

Keerthana, a student of Isha Vidhya Dharmapuri shares:
"Today girls too compete and win prizes in Silambam!
I have been training Silambam for the past two years.
Before a competition, we train hard for a month or for
a few weeks.  This time, there were 100 participants in
the competition.  My family feels proud that I am training
in this martial arts form.  I would like to be a top Silambam
practitioner soon!"

If you would like to support the schools sports infrastructure,
we encourage you that you start a monthly recurring donation
for a small amount, which would make a big difference in these
childrens lives!  The link to start a recurring donation is:

2 school buses through Globalgiving funding!

Dear Patrons,

As mentioned earlier, Isha Vidhya has procured two school
buses out of funding raised through GlobalGiving - one for
Cuddalore school and one for Villupuram school!

Before Isha Vidhya schools were started in these two areas,
several children had been forced to drop out of the school,
as their parents had been unable to afford private transport,
which was more expensive than the transportation provided
by the Isha Vidhya schools.  Public transport was not adequate,
dependable or convenient, but fortunately, the Isha Vidhya
school bus service offers several advantages:

  • Transportation is now provided at a far lower cost and
    optimizing routes reduced travel time
  • The children travel in relative comfort and safety, compared
    to public transport and the children have been able to arrive
    at school in a timely fashion.
  • The children are picked up at their doorstep, which ensures
    their safety.
  • The teachers also benefit from utilizing the bus, as significant
    time is now saved in their commute. Thus, the teachers are
    able to better balance their time obligations between their
    families and the school.

The Cuddalore school bus is operated by Mr. Palani and Mrs. Vijaya
and benefits 75 children. It makes 2 trips each in the morning and
in the evening.  6 villages in the radius of 6 kilometers from the school
are covered by this bus.

Impact story from Cuddalore school:

Thilipanraj's parents were from C.Pudupettai, a Tsunami affected
village. When the child was 2 years old father went to a Gulf country
as a daily wage labor. Their family was in the hope of better life
with the father getting a decent income even though it was a labor
kind of job. Unfortunately, within a month he met with a boat
accident and returned to India. He lost his legs and couldn’t earn,
thus family depends on his wife salary alone. With the meager
income, she couldn’t able to spend for the education of her son.
After knowing the background, scholarship is provided to the
student, as now he is getting a quality education and as a kid, the
journey through school bus is safe and secure.

The Villupuram school bus is operated by Mr. Senthilkumar and
Mrs. Lakshmi, and benefits 59 children and 14 staff. It makes 2 trips
each in the morning and in the evening.  9 villages in the radius of
23 kilometers from the school are covered by this bus.

Shares Sandhiya of 10th grade from the Villupuram school:

"It had been a daily struggle to attend school due to the distance and
rush in the morning hours as government bus facilities are very limited
to our village. But, through School bus, I am able to travel with my friends
and save time. The journey is such an enjoyable thing as we use to play
few games. KG children are very happy with the new school bus. I am
very thankful to Isha Vidhya and in the future; I will lend my support to the
society in all possible ways."

We are attaching the fabulous pictures of both the school buses for
your view!

If you would like take part in this effort of contributing to the school
infrastructure, please consider a recurring donation every month for
a small amount. Funding little by little makes a huge difference all put
together!  The link to start a recurring donation is:

http://www.globalgiving.org/projects/ishavidhya?show=recurring

The great news is that if you make a recurring donation between
July 12th 18:30 PM IST and July 13th 21:29 PM IST, your first
recurring donation upto $100 will be doubled, provided the recurring
is maintained for at least 3 months.

We thank you from the bottom of our heart for everything that you
have done for Isha Vidhya. We look forward for your continued
engagement!

Best Regards,
