As i said, we have heard about this place through one of my friend – who is staying nearby.

We have visited to see the situation and identify their needs.

We have gathered the following information.
1. Hemalatha – is managing this trust , she can be reachable through mobile mentioned in the web site.

2.They given shelter for 84 kids and 15 aged people.

3.She is planning to send all kids to BRITTANIA SCHOOL, that is near to BADI (i don’t have much information about this place).

4. She is estimating 1.2lakh per year for all 84 students to provide school fee, uniform and books. This is the amount after getting the considerable concession for these kids.

5. She will try her level best to make sure all the kids to go to BRITTANIA SCHOOL only. If she fails, then take them to corporation school.

6. She is looking for some people to sponser stationary items also.

7. That place is running in a rented house – she is paying Rs. 5000 per month.

8. She is not getting any constant money from any source, but she said that she is managing by collecting from known people, volunteers and friends.

9. One volunteer comes there to teach those kids in the evening.

10. She appointed a caretaker by paying Rs. 1000 per month – that girl done +2 and helping those kids to teach whatever she knows.

11. She is looking for some sponsers to provide school bags.

12. She is supporting a village in Kanchipuram district and she told us that she is planning to establish a hospital (PHC) there – ( forgot the village name.) She brought 20 students this from village to education through BRITTANIA SCHOOL.

She would be sending all the estimation with complete details including student’s name, class and money required for school bag, stationary, uniform and books to us (myself and my frends) by this week.
The place and the caretaker looks genuine. If any of you come across to know about this place , please share the news with us.

Hello Uday,
Myself and my friends visited a charitable trust – who is giving shelter
and education for about 84 kids,also taking care of 15 old people.

Do you have any information about this place?.


visit to Saraswathi Ammal Charitable Trust

Last week, we had a gr8 time in Saraswathi Ammal Charitable Trust. Senthil Kumar B and myself went there to know the possibility and necessity of our help. Here are some details of the org.

** The trustee Mrs. Hemalatha is doing really a gr8 job. She not only runs this org, but also helping poor students in some slum areas.
** The organisation looks very genuine.
** The org is funded by iSoft. So, the tuition fee, food, such basic and necessary things are regularly given by the company.
** The org contains around 67 students and few old age ppl. At present, their need is some permanent vehicle, since frequently those old ppl fall ill and the ambulance(or call taxi) costs much. Moreover, the students of the org is studying in a school, which is situated nearly 1 KM from thr. Inspite of heavy traffic, they care for the safety of the students.
** One person called Suresh, who is doing his UG(B.Sc, think so), is also taken care by this org. (He got 80+ percent in his first semester, and waiting for the 2nd sem results) Apart from this person, 3 more college going gals also taken care by this org. For their tuition fee for this year, they need money.

My views…

1. Hemalatha sed their first need is vehicle, like Maruti Omni, (2nd hand). She sed, even its by any EMI plans, then also its okay.
2. She is also interested in setting up a computer centre.
But, for the first point, I think, our fund is not sufficient. And, for the 2nd one… they have students upto 9th std only. So, a computer centre is not a big need for them, think so.
3. So… if possible, we can take care of the tuition fee of those who are studying UG, or atleast one.

The above are my personal views only. Suggesstions welcome. Anyway, I will accept trustee’s final decision.
