Nearly a month back, I visited Iniya Udhayam Charitable trust, to get to know about their requirements. Earlier, till Jul 2008, we had been supporting the home for their Spoken English class. And, after that, since the faculty was about to change, we stopped the service. Now, we wanted to review their progress and possibilities of our help required to their home.
I met Komala & Sujatha(those who started the trust). The trust is doing good now, as they get some regular funding from kind hearts. The following are their current activities.
1.They are running their own tuition centre for the students of Govt schools in the outskirts of Avadi.
2.They are running a computer centre, with the help of another trust, @ Avadi.
3.They deploy a teacher for the nearby Govt school, for 9th & 10th Std. (The school has been recently promoted as High School. And, the govt didn’t even appoint any new staff to handle 9th & 10th Std.) After appointing the teacher, they are able to see significant improvement in studies.
The following are the income & expenses…. (The exact amt may slightly vary)
The tuition centre has 3 staff, each is paid Rs. pm. And, the school teacher is paid Rs. 1K pm. They can manage to pay the salary from a person, who donates regularly Rs 3K per month.
The computer centre is supported by Smile org. They have got one another sponsor for computer teacher too.
So, at present they don’t have any requirements for their current activities, as far as my assumptions. They have stopped the spoken English class, as they were unable to find an eligible faculty. Once they start it, they may need help. So, we can review one another time, and give support accordingly.
