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

    United Nations-MDG..this might interest you…
    One of the darkest characteristics of poverty is that is seems to prey on the vulnerable and defenseless. In low-income countries, one out of every 10 children dies before the age of five. In wealthier nations, this number is only one out of 143.
    I think its high time we all individually or collectively Stand Up and Speak Out for our rights

    This will help all you people on this blog to do something along with the United Nations in your locality.
