Children in Cuddalore flood area use notebooks for school exercises
By Janet Preethi G - Project Leader
Thanks to donors through GlobalGiving, flood affected families of Cuddalore received emergency relief supplies in beginning of year 2016 and involved in livelihood enhancements by goat rearing. True,the main objective of this project was to rebuild homes destroyed by floods in Cuddalore and Villupuram Districts. Since only minimum donations for this purpose has come, from middle of year 2016, school going children were assisted with educational supports like books and notebooks. We will go in for rebuilding of homes after raising more funds.
63 Children have scored more marks in quarterly exams conducted in September 2017. The parents inform that children used the notebooks for school exercises and also for home works.
When VOICE Trust visited the flood affected area in Cuddalore for informing about the possible closing of the project, there was an unanimous appeal for continuing the project at least for extending educational supports for school going children.This was endorsed by HESAT – the local NGO Partner.
Hence, VOICE Trust appeals for extending educational supports for 366 school children in Cuddalore region with books, notebooks and guide books. Each child can be helped with 10US Dollars.
