Visit to Iniya Udhayam…

Last saturday I visited IniyaUdhayam Charitable Trust. Komala and Sujatha (sisters) started this org on Jan 2004. After finishing their course in CSIM, chennai, they started this org. (CSIM – Centre for Social Initiative and Management — http://www.csim.org/)

Activities:
— They are providing free tuition in the evening for the govt shool students nearby. Apart from this, they conduct some games like things in saturdays to increase the concentration power and other extra curricular activities.
— Nearly 70 students are studying there. Students are from 1st to 11th std.
— For this tuition they appointed 3 faculties. (Two from Arts & Science backround, another one from BE backround) They are providing tuition fee for those faculties.

— They are running one another centre in Ananda Nagar. 30 students are there. 1 faculty is taking care of them.
— Supplementary food is provided for 3 days per week.
— They conduct awareness camp, medical, dental camps also.

Needs:
— The current place they are residing is not considerably large enuf to hold that much students. They are shifting to a new place in December. After going there, they decided to start Abacus training & Spoken english training. For this, they are going to appoint faculties. They need fund for this project.
— Apart from this, they teach some basic computer functionalities too to the students, with the computer available with them. (They have one computer). But they feel a computer centre will serve the purpose fully.


My views:
As far as myself is concerned they are doing good work. Its a genuine org. We can support their education purpose. ie: like providing tuition fee for spoken english class or abacus training.
