Visited to Hosahalli Village, Koppal(Dist), KA to setup India Sudar tuition center.

[India Sudar] Tuition center: Hospet

From: Ramaseshan S <>

Dear All,

We have set up a new Tuition center at Lingapura in Hospet. Ms. Fathima BB, tuition teacher, would be teaching all students of primary/middle/high schools in the village. This Tuition is for under privileged students of Govt. school who cannot afford regular Tuitions. This project also targets to provide individual attention to children who find it difficult to cope with the Classroom teaching/sessions.

Attached is the project report for your reference.

Follow this link for more information.


Koppal Dist, Karnataka.

Dear Friends,

We(Raghavendra Prasad A R, Ramaseshan.S, Udhaya Kumar.V) have visited to Hosahalli Village, Koppal(Dist) – 583234, Karnataka (Near Hospet, 20 Km from Humpi, 350Km from Bangalore, North Karnataka) on 29-Dec-2007 to setup India Sudar tuition center.

We have visited to this village through Bhuvaneswari, She was taking tuition for this village poor students in past. Currently she is not able to continue this.

We have visited to Hosahalli Government School and had discussion with Head Master and some of the teachers, students. 396 students studying in this school and they are from 1st standard to 8th standard(10 teachers working). Some of the private school also available at nearby this village. Most of these students’ parents are illiterate, so they are not giving much important for the education.


We have explained our India Sudar activity to Head master & teachers. They are very impressed and ready to allocate separate class room to run our tuition center within school itself.

Currently we are starting our center in Fathima.BB(India Sudar center Teacher) house itself. Down the line we will move this center to Gov School. Bhuvaneswari taking ownership to invite only poor students and first generation kids for our center. India Sudar will start this center from Jan’08 to Apri’08. Yes of course this will be continued for next academic year also.

Our center will run for 7 days per week. Sunday will be used only 9th and 10th students.


We have to appreciate Bhuvaneswari, Who is really showing the interest to provide education for these village students. We have visited to Bhuvana house & she staying in very small house. Even she had several economical issues, still having the mentality to help village students. She is proving money is not a matter to provide service to poor students.

Visited to Indira Gandhi International Academy, Jakkur, Bangalore – 560 064, KA.

Bangalore, KA.

Dear friends,

On 28-Oct-2007, I have visited to Indira Gandhi International Academy, Jakkur, Bangalore – 560 064, KA and Discussion with Gokila(Admin for this School, Mobile- 91-99729-36136) to see our ongoing projects and current requirement.

Existing Project & Status:

1. Already we deployed 5 teacher through Australian Sponsord and Partners
2. One month back, Mr.Sam (Srilankan settled in Australia, IBM’mer) provided some of the educaiton material, 100 sleeping mattress, corpot, some dress for girls.

Some of the Urgent Requirements:

1. Already ISKON provides lunch in this home, But they needs to make breakfast and dinner. Currently they don’t have enough support for food & ending up with issue. Some time back one of the Church(Indira Nagar) supported in the food perspective. But now they are stopped because of some internal restriction. India sudar cont support this requirement, So We needs to find any other supporting organization for this requirement. Still they asked some of the daily things like soap, oil, etc

2. Still they have electricity issue, it means they don’t have electricity in this school. Even they have some Solar Lamps, but nothing works.

About this Organization fore new members:

visited to Gayatri Pariwar

Dear Friends,

On 20-Oct-2007, I have visited to YUG SHAKTI GAYATRI KENDRA 16/2, 1st Floor, 3rd Main, 3rd Cross, Prakash Nagar, Bangalore – 560 021 & had discussion with Mr.Ashutosh Sahu, in his team(they have 60 members team in Bangalore, I met near 10 people in this meeting)

I got this contact through one of our India Sudar member, So I have visited to this organization. Based on my meeting I can understand they are already running Work shops and Books exhibitions based on Spirituality, Spirituality in Corporate Culture, etc in South.

They are more interested to participate in Social activity “Aradhana(Service of Society as embodiment of cosmic divinity)”. They are more interested to work as partner to provide service like education, medical, etc in KA homes, villages, schools, etc. Initially they will visit to existing India sudar supporting Homes, Schools, etc to understand the need. Yes we need more people and organizations to achieve our common Vision.
