Currently SDD running only one learning center within the town(within there office itself) & they are running different type of the projects for 40 villages.

India Sudar Visit & Plan:

I have visited to following villages (backward place) & dicussed with local people to setup India Sudar Learning centers.

Chetpet (No need of Center)

This villages contain 100 to 150 houses. Most of them are daily agriculture labors.

I planned to visit Khalighapuram village & Namadhthodu village also. But I am not did because of the time constrain.

I seen one of the church (ST Joseph’s Chuqch Thathanoor) & absolutely converted as Primary School. Its really good approach to serve.

I feel finding the teacher for this centers will be difficult. Any way Manavalan commited to find some of teachers from nearby villages.

We need to pay Rs,1500 as monthly salary for our learning center teachers.

We can start our learning center for this village. Its really helpful for this student.

I can see more dropouts this villages. Most of the time, they are dropping there education because of the family economical situation.

Even I am thinking we can setup Literacy Learning center to educate old people using software. it will be really useful.

Providing Education for 55 Child Labor in Madurai, TamilNadu

16/Feb/2008, Tamil Nadu.

Fropm: T Hari <> , Sent by: ,16/02/08 02:21 PM

Dear All,
Last week I and our member Jeyaseeralan met representatives (Anitha & Arivan) of an NGO named “Blue Blood” ( (BlueBlood was started by the various students from different Engineering Colleges in and around Chennai) and came to know about their proposed project of sponsoring the education for the 55 Child Labors living from rural areas of Madurai, Tamilnadu. Most of these children have parents who are from a very poor background. Their parents are daily wage labors (umbrella repair, agriculture labors, construction workers etc) who find it almost impossible to send their children to school and so they prefer sending them to work to meet ends. All the 55 Children mentioned in the below are all girls. But if we can sponsor for their education, they can surely continue schooling without any hi! ndrance from their parents or financial crisis. 55 is just a start, if we get enough funds we wish to sponsor more n more children in the future. Out of these 55, few are going to complete 12th and wish to pursue higher education especially teacher training courses. A girl named Thavaselvi had to discontinue school due to pressure from her parents to go to work. But after much struggle and resistance, she has gone back to school. These children are really determined and have great perseverance to come up in life even under adverse conditions. Many of these children are studying in the Government High School in their respective villages… They need everything right from food, clothing to books and other writing materials…
Currently children who are studying 12th Standard are wish to do teacher training course in future which costs about Rs.25,000 per year… Currently children who are studying 7th Standard to 11th Standard would costs about Rs.2500 per year for a child and it is needed to continue their education. I explained about our India Sudar Activities to them and they appreciate our members and eager to share this project with India Sudar (Hence the Rough Total Cost for this Project may be around Rs.3,50,000/-)
Site Name                               :           Rural Areas of Madurai City, Tamilnadu.
Type of Support Needed       :           School Fees, Dress, Books, Stationeries
Total No. of Beneficiary        :           55 Children
Estimated Project Cost          :           Nearly Rs.3,50,000/-(Rupees Three Lakh only)

Please feel free to comment on this and suggestions are welcome to decide about this project.

Hello All,

This must be third mail about GOVT MIDDLE SCHOOL, at MATHOOR, Tamil Nadu.

I forgot to mention about an interesting student Sakaravarthy S/o Mr.Arumugam. He is dumb and deaf and studying 8th Standard in that school.

The Teachers are not very sure about how to communicate with him, but he learns lessions from his classmates and teachers through signs and lip reading. He is one among the bright student in his class. His handwriting is really neat and beautiful.

He would come out of that middle school in this year, and we have to find a right school (special school for dumb and deaf) in Tamil Nadu and help him to continue his education.

Chennai team – Can you please help him to identify a right school for him. Please call me to know more details about him.


Hello All,
I have contacted a local tailor near to Mathoor village and enquired about the cloth required per student and tailoring charges. Based on the conversation, i have given the estimate for every student in the below list (same excel sheet is attached here).
We need around Rs. 6000 to provide 1 set of UNIFORM to every student. I guess, it would be better to give 2 set for every student. As I mentioned, they don’t have any other dress i guess. Please let me know, if any of you willing to contribute for those students or if you need any other information.

Subject: [India Sudar] Visit Update: GOVT MIDDLE SCHOOL, MATHOOR, TAMIL NADU

Hello All,
I visited GOVT MIDDLE SCHOOL, MATHOOR VILLAGE on last Monday. Mathoor village comes under Nagappattinam District, Tharangambai taluk. It is kind of remote village and surrounded by paddy fields. Thanks to teacher Miss. Sumathi to bring the information and requirements about this school to our notice.

In this school, there are 211 students studying (106 boys + 105 girls) from 1st to 8th standard with 6 teachers including Headmaster.

There are many dropouts in that village due to poverty. I had visited all the classes from 1st standard to 8th standard, i could see about 20 students wore very old and torn clothes. Teachers told me that those poor students have only 1 set of dress and they wear the same everyday.

It is really bad to see those students wearing shirt without even buttons and they adjusted with safety pins. Looks like it is very common there, but it is very bad to see those students. I have collected the name of 20 students, who requires at least 2 pairs of school uniform immediately. We don’t need to wait till next academic year.

All the students are sitting on the floor and attending classs. I guess, it is very common in most of the village schools. Based on my discussions with school teachers, we can provide sleeping MATS, that would give little comfort for those students. I think that would cost Rs.100 and if we are able to give 20 sleeping mats, that is very sufficient.

They also told us that toilet is in very bad shape, but i told them it is least priority compared to poor students not having proper clothes.

The important requirements is – they need 1 or 2 teachers to cover 8 classes. It is very diffucult for students as well as teachers to manage 8 classes with 5 teachers and 1 headmaster. I got this information one day prior to visiting this school and i came across a deserved candidate near to that school, her name is Miss. S Suganthi and she had completed M.Phil. I had discussed with her and her family about the job opportunity at this school and INDIA SUDAR. They agreed to work in that school for Rs. 2000 per month.

Since i knew the requirement in that school already, I went to school along with Miss. S Suganthi and discussed with Headmaster Mr. Kaliya perumal and other teachers Mr. Raghunath and Miss. Sumathi. They all agreed and happy to get another teacher for their school. Miss. Suganthi is continuing as a teacher in that school from last Monday (11th Feb 2008) and deployed by INDIA SUDAR.

We have decided to visit this school before this month end and distribute school uniforms for those 20 students, agreement to deploy teacher and handover the salary cheque to Headmaster.

Action Item:

1. Miss. Suganthi, M.Phil is working as teacher since 11th Feb 2008, deployed by INDIA SUDAR. We agreed to pay Rs. 2000 per month.

2. We are looking for sponsors to pay this salary and buy school uniforms for those 20 poor students.

After the Mathoor’s school visit, i visited GOVT HIGHER SECONDARY SCHOOL, AKKUR. I had a long discussion with Headmaster.

We can plan ‘career counselling’ programme during June 2008 as we planned. There are 4 to 5 poor students in II PUC are studying well and they expect to score very good marks in this year. He asked us to support for their higher studies. I promised him to support, if they score good marks 🙂
