Sincere thanks to Sahasra Deepika Institute for Education (India) – for supporting poor students

8 Aug 2007, KA.

Hello All,

One of my colleague’s (Pankaj Tyaji) told me that his servant maid Mrs. Sophia is looking for
a boarding school to admit her twin boys and continue their education. Both are doing second standard now. I met her at Tyagi’s residence about 3 weeks back.

Sophia is from Nellore, she went against her family for love marraige about 7 years back and she is left by her husband with her twin boys.She is not getting any support from her family except her sister. She is working as servant maid in few house and making around Rs.2000 per month.

She is living in a small room kind of house and paying Rs.1000 as rent near marathahalli. She is not able to manage  her work and her sons education. She put her sons into a convent school as well as boarding school (kind of church)  near seva nagar, but she came to know that school student
leaders beat them badly to wake them up in the early morning and follow the descipline.

Since these boys are very small and doing second standard, they are not able to bear that torture and came out with lots of injuries. When she complaint to that church father, he could not help it seems. He said that they need follow some rules for all to grow the students with descipline.

She was looking for another boarding & convent school, so that  she can work and support their education as well.

We had discussed with volunteers of Sahasra Deepika Institute for Education (India) (SDI – http://www.sahasrad Karthik , Usha and Arun. They made Sophia to meet the board of directors and founders Dr. T V Ramakrishna and Mrs. Vijaya L Ramakrishna and they agreed to admit both of her sons at their boarding school. The entire quality education and boarding is at free of cost until II PUC.

However, she wants to keep one son with her custody for various personal reasons and she found a school for him near Marathahalli. We found sponsers from Employee of Samsung India Software Operatios to pay school fee (Rs.8000) for her second son as well. We would send our detailed report in the next mail.

So her first son would continue his education at Sahasra Deepika Institute for Education (India) from next week onwards.

Infact, India Sudar team visited this school and wrote about this school and the quality of education for poor students in our society. Please visit http://www.indiasudar. org->BLOG

Our sincere and heartly thanks to founders Dr. T V Ramakrishna and Mrs. Vijaya L Ramakrishna for providing such a quality education for poor students.

We extend our sincere thanks to volunteers Usha, Karthik and Arun for their great help and follow up.
