Incidentally, the recent floods in Chennai and its neighboring districts did not just wash away houses and destroy the livelihoods of lakhs of people, it also swept away the hopes of thousands of schoolchildren. The furious flood water chased them from their homes, took away school books, bags, uniforms and anything else in its path and rendered the utilities such as blackboards, benches, lights and fans and the structural set-up in schools and colleges in the disaster-affected areas damaged and unfit for use.
The situation demanded immediate attention and hence, the Foundation embarked on recouping schools and colleges by revamping/white washing walls and desks, providing power back-up support and study material to the flood-affected children. It also provided provisons, stationery etc to the victims of flood. The details of the same are as under.
Education offers the foundation for the youth to achieve the desired potential. But millions of students become drop out from schools and colleges due to financial reasons. Supporting and promoting education at any level will reenergize the education sector, realize the future of growth and prosperity and transform India to a true knowledge power.
This is an Era of responsibility. The foundation has understood the present concern with most consideration that we cannot end poverty without investing in education. Indeed investing in education is the only possible and effective way of reducing poverty. So Foundation took a powerful step and rolled a program to sponsor a child education for the upliftment of the impoverished clan. The main motive of this program is to eradicate the poverty which is hindering to pursue education. The Foundation believes that appropriate education has the potential to unleash the biggest challenge and empower the underprivileged people in the society. Under the said program, foundation has come up with an award â€˜SAHYOGâ€™ to financially support potential and economically challenged students to complete their education and also facilitate the teachers who have added value to their profession with financial support in pursuing further education.
