Mullai Educational Trust exists to provide quality to education to underprivelged rural children at their door step. We live near the community we are serving. The school campus is located right within the community, with around 12 villages surrounding us within a radius of about 3 kilometres.
Most of the children walk or ride on their bi-cycles to reach the campus. The classes function from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. From 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm, we have club activities and other programmes that shape the lives of these children.
We are in the process of evolving a new system of education, wherein the child learns the lessons on its own and teacher functions as a facilitator. The child consults the books and the teachers to move into the next level of skill that needs to be acquired. The focus will be on gaining the knowledge skill and not just spending a time period in a class!
Since the children come form underprivileged homes, we provide a subsidy in the payment of fees and spend on providing a nutritious snack in the evening during the club activity time. We also give them occassional gifts to encourage them.
So we are looking for sponsors to help these children to pursue their education, which otherwise is not a reality. We spend at least Rs. 12,000/- ($ 180) per annum to provide these privileges to the children.
The evening club activity is led by a staff, trained to facilitate the development of each child in different areas of their lives.
You can make a difference in their lives ...
You can sponsor a child at INR 900/- per month ($ 15 pm). This will give the child the privilege of quality education, daily evening nutritious snacks and 1 hour every day of special activity time!
