LITERACY CARE
 
A person is considered literate if he or she can read and write with understanding, in any language. However, a person who can merely read, but cannot write, is not recorded as literate in census.

HELP Movement volunteers identify poor children in the villages who can not afford basic education in their lives.

The Trust do have programs to help such poor children to meet their educational needs,  for a limited number.

The above educational help is being offered strictly to the deserving and needy children subject to verification.

The Trust would also like to organize Awareness programs to spread the value of education amongst villagers.

However, the Trust do not guarantee this as a matter of right.  Decision on granting such help being vest purely with the Founder & Managing Trustee, with no rights for others to question.

The Trust would also like to explore possibilities of offering scholarships in selected schools in the villages in Tamil Nadu.

SCHOOL ADOPTION
Adopting a School, was always one of our Dreams, as our major objective being to help the poor children in their education.

Through LC of Saligramam, we have adopted a school by name, General Cariappa Secondary School, Saligramam, Chennai. This school helps the poor children to get educated upto 12th standard in Tamil Medium, and extend all sort of help to get better academic results every time. While education has become too commercial in our society today, this school might be a ROLE MODEL for the poor children, and a relief to their parents.

While adoption of this school, our aims are-

  • General Health, Eye & Dental screening for all children.
  • Start Computer Literacy program in Std X, XI & XII.
  • Spoken English program from Std. X onwards.
  • Hepatitis B vaccination for all students.
  • HIV/AIDS Awareness program for Std IX-XII.
  • Hygiene Awareness program for all the students.
  • Better infrastructure for the school

    We have already initiated the Health screening activities, Computer Literacy program, HIV/AIDS awareness program, Spoken English program, Hepatitis B vaccination program.

    Tablets India Pvt Ltd, one of the premier pharmaceutical companies situated in Chennai, have come forward to help us to maintain FIRST-AID requirements in the school with all relevant medicines.

    Need FACULTIES: We need qualified faculties in Computer Science, Spoken English, Personality Development specialists etc who can assist us to carry out the above program for the benefit of poor children. Persons who can spare Saturday or 2 hours weekly are of help to us.

    MORE ABOUT LITERACY

  • Why we want to help people in Literacy?

    The brains behind this movement understands that rather offering a Fish to a hungry person, make him Fishing!

    The quality of life really moves with the awareness of a person.  In most of the undeveloped countries, begging has become a growing phenomenon.  The policies of administrative bodies couldn’t bring much change in this area, as beggars can be seen in most of the streets of such countries.

    Help Movement emphatically believes to organize awareness programs, in this connection, and aims to select villages where such programs can be organized more meaningfully.  It is expected, such awareness programs could bring changes in life style,  and eradicate unemployment among youths and women.

    It is also our interest to promote Computer literacy in the villages.  We are taking up the subject with IT giants in the city, and requesting them to offer old and  unusable computers, which can be repaired and use for this purpose.
