Visit to Pudhiyadhor Urappakkam

30-JUN-07, Chennai, TN

Hi Folks,

2 weeks ago, we, myself(91) and SenthilKumar, B(144) visited “Puthiyadhor”, an org for underprivillaged. The org is running by Aravind and his friends. It is situated in Urappaakkam, Chennai. Most of the ppl in the org were that slum area students. The head of that community is fully supportive for their initiative and talked to his community ppl and made them to attend the classes conducted by Pudhiyathor.

Actually, the org was started by Crescent College Alumnis by 2004 and is a registered one. Its just 30 min walk from Crescent. So, it will be easier for those students to take classes and to make any arrangements. Till now, they don’t have any full time employee to take care of the children. They managed to run the trust by the alumnis and the junior students. Interested volunteer junior students and alumnis take classes yet. ‘coz of this, they couldn’t track each children. Ie: one volunteer maynot know the previous day happenings. So, they need a full time teaching staff.

Apart from this, they consolidated their other needs als. I am forwarding the mail sent by them.

I think, we can support either full time co-ordinator or teaching staff.

b.For teaching staff – Rs. 3000/month * 3 (Staff) = Rs.9000 (recurring)

3.Medical Expenses -Rs.5000/month (recurring)
