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.
Adopting a School, was always one of our Dreams, as our major objective being to help the poor children in their education.
HELP Movement volunteers
identify poor children in the villages who can not afford basic
education in their lives.
Trust do have programs to help such poor children to meet their
educational needs, for a limited number.
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
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.
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.

Better infrastructure for the school

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.
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
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.
