Hi,

I had visited the Baby Sarah home on last saturday(26-May-07) . The earlier project what we gave support to them was very useful. They want to continue the existing two
projects(Deploying Tution teacher & Deploying Tution teacher for Mentally Disabled)
and also they want Staioneries, Bags & Chappels for the school going children.

Thanks and Regards,

visited to Thiagam women’s trust, Madurai

29/Apr/2007

Hi Frenz,

First of all very much sorry for the much delayed mail. (I think, this becomes usual. I hav to change it.) 😉

BTW, we (Myself – 91 and Senthil kumar – 144) visited Thiagam women’s trust, Madurai. The trust is run by AmuthaShanthi, who is physically challenged. First she started a weaving m/c training for physically challenged women. Then, now she expanded the centre for poor women also, in and around madurai. Actually, now the centre is run by her sister, who has dedicated her life for this centre. They export the small items which are manufactured in the centre.

Two yrs back, they started a programme called “Thiagam Narpanbu Kalvi maiyam” (TNKM). In this programme, they choose one or more villages(mostly slum areas) as the target and started teaching the school going children some gud habits and lessons. They select the faculty in the village itself. First they train the faculty, then appoint them as faculty. Some voluntary persons are training the faculties without any fee. And, TNKM will take care of faculties’ payment. They said, after they started this course, most parents came and told, “My son is giving me respect now only.” Yes…. B4 that, the children used to call their fathers “vaada, poda”. J

The trust doesn’t have any regular income. So, they are struggling to pay the amt. So, at present, their primary need is tuition fee for 5 faculties. Currently, they are paying 300/ each. And, they feel the fee is very less and so they wanted to give atleast 400/. So, totally it comes around 2K per month. And, we(TCE-Crescendo e-grp – 2003 TCE CSE Alumnis) decided to pay the amt by ourselves thru India Sudar for the next one year. (Actually, this also took some time to discuss with my friends, and so the mail delay)

Below is the details of TNKM, if u wanna know more.

Luv,
Athi (B +ve)

Gudur visit Report

05-May-2007,
Gudur, AP

Dear Friends,

I (Suresh) and Baskar (Code:182) visited the service centre (THAPASVINI Trust) in Guthavaripalem Village, Kadivedu Post, Gudur Thaluk, Nellore District, AP on
05/05/2007 (i.e. Last saturday) to verify the computers installed for Training centre. Except one computer, other 3 computers are working fine. Due to hard disk failure, one system is down. We are just finding the used/new hard disk to resolve the issue.

Also, we had discussion on computer course syllabus which is planned during this summer holidays. At present, 40 students are enrolled for computer training. These students are from the villages around Guthavaripalem. Apart from computer, they are also been trained in Yoga. Due to shortage of computers, they are just able to cover only few Villages.

As per the discussion we had with Mr. Prabhu of THAPASVINI Trust, it is found that they are having very good plan for execution of several activities releated to Education for the poor students in Villages. THAPASVINI Trust is not only involved in education, they are also doing other noble services for the villages around the trust. We will do our best
to achieve our common goal.

Thanks and best regards,

-Suresh
Trustee, India Sudar
