We hope you are all doing well.
The primary purpose of our mission is to provide poor, less educated youth the opportunity to acquire a skill and build a prospective career.
Students enrolled for the academic year 2015-16 in Catering is 78 and Nursing 35. Donations received were spent towards these students’ book materials, buss pass and provision of free lunch to them which will help them continue their studies without any difficulties.
Over the past three months, our youth have continued to benefit from the training programmes. This will help them gain work experience by applying methods and theories learned in classes and will be a great way for them to acquaint themselves with the skill acquired as well as the confidence that they have chosen the correct career path. English coaching class was taken up.
We are constantly grateful for the support we receive from donors and look forward to updating you about our activities.
We wish you all a happy holiday season.
Thank you again and best regards!
Thank you to everyone who has contributed towards this project.
The goal of our project is to monetarily support the children with their education supplements. Though not much has been raised in this project, we still believe the best is yet to come. There's so much more that we can do to help children to continue their education without any difficulties.
Our Coordinator pays regular visits to the schools of our children to update their learning status. However we have received positive comments from the Headmasters' of these students. Due to the heavy rains during the past week, children have missed around a week’s classes and hence the government has decided to post-pone their half yearly exams in January 2016.
Your continued support will help us grow this service and offer it to many more children who are in need of our help.
Our sincere appreciation to all the donors on Global Giving for all their support in providing youth with vocational skill training.
All the Catering students who are undergoing their on-the-job training at various hotels, were set on regular visits by the Project Co-ordinator. Along with the assistance of the Hotel Managers, a counseling programme was held for the students brushing them up on the benefits of perusal of the course.
Meanwhile the Paramedical students assumed their regular courses in the morning and set themselves to the on-the-job training session in the noon hours.
For this quarter we were glad to have Mr.Conor Brown, Volunteer from Ireland to help the students with Basic English speaking and writing skills. They were made to frame small sentences correctly, practiced on pronunciation of words, and reading skills. Basic handling of computers, its operations, etc. were imparted to the students who till the completion of their schooling are not acquainted to it. We follow a standard pattern in coaching them on its usage and operations.
All the paramedical & catering students who had appeared for their exams have passed out successfully and were awarded with their certificates.
Thirupathi’s father Mr.Gopal is a fruits vendor while his mother Muthumani is employed as a daily wage labourer in the MGNRE scheme run by the Government. His younger sister Lakshmipriya is mentally retarded and has polio attack from her childhood. His elder brother is a farm labourer while his elder sister is settled with marriage. Though his father is running his own business, this fetched him little income. His mother has serious health problems and hence she is unable to go for work regularly. His father has visual problems due to the recent accident he had met. Hence the family is entirely dependent on their children’s income which is barely enough to meet out the entire basic amenities, medical and educational expenses. During free time, his father engages himself with daily wages under the MGNRE scheme run by the Government. In spite of their hardships, they are determined to educate their son Thirupathi.
On completing his Hr. Sec. Schooling, Thirupathi joined the Hotel Management Course in Musiri. Though he had selected it with great hesitation, during the course of time, he understood the benefits of the vocational course he had selected and later involved himself in all the classes with great enthusiasm and passion.
He is now under his training period in Bangalore drawing a stipend of Rs.5000/- which he uses towards the medical treatment of his younger sister.
“It’s a great opportunity because it gives me the independence and helps me to stand on my own feet. There is a lot of scope in this field, I can earn and financially support my family,” says Thirupathi.
