Dear All,
 
I had visited the “Sri Arunodayam Charitable Trust” (A Home for Mentally Challenged Destitute & Spastic Children) on 21st April 2008 and discussed with Mr. Iyyappa & Ms. Chitra (Both are the founders of this home) and at present they don’t have any educational needs but they need the following equipment to provide self employment training to the childrens.

1) For the children above 15 years they are planning to give training in making Paper Cup which will be used for several ! purposes (Ice Cream/Juice/Coffee,etc.,) and also they identified a special machine which is designed especially for the mentally challenged destitute & spastic children will cost nearly Rs.70,000/-(Rupees Seventy Thousand only)

2) For the children above 15 years they are planning to give training in making Candles, for this purchasing Die to produce candle will cost roughly around Rs.10,000/-
