Interaction with parents
Interaction with parents

In February one of our wellwishers from Alaska visited our coaching class in Devarayaneri. We had an interaction with the parents of the children. Most of the mothers want to educate their children unliike them. Alamelu's mother wants her to completed the school atleast. Sathyaraj's mother says only after her children started going to the coaching class they are studying well. Earlier she will be called by the school teachers often and warned about the poor performance of the children. Now there is tremendous progress in their studies and they do their home work properly and doing well in their exams.

The children narrated stories, recited poems and solved the mathematical problems given by the coaching class teacher. We are very happy to see the children so active. They also danced for us, and it is not an exaggeration to say that they are gifted in dancing. 

This year we have 40 children in the coaching class and we want all this children to go to the next level of education and expect atleast 10 moer children to join the coaching class. All this is possible only because of noble hearted donors like you. While thanking you for this, we also request you to inform about this project to your likeminded friends and relatives.


Thanking you

With the narikuravar children
