For the past three years, Sri. Sujeet Kumar Pai, who now heads Marketing, South Asia at the The Linde Group has been visiting our S. Viswanathan Memorial AIM for Seva Chatralayam in Sriperumbudur, Tamil Nadu. He would spend time with our children and listen to their stories and interact with them. The relationship would culminate through student sponsorship support. This year too, on behalf of Linde, Sri. Pai handed over a cheque of Rs. 5 lakh.
The present strength of the Sriperumbudur Chatralayam is 38. The boys are active and there is a regular stream of volunteers at the premises who come to teach English, computers and Sanskrit. The boys take an interest not only in extracurricular activities in the Chatralayam but also attend summer camps organised in other Chatralayams. Competitive and dynamic, they participate in various competitions and come back winning prizes.
Alongside our efforts to create new donors and supporters, it is also important to continue to receive the support of our existing donors. And for LINDE, they have been ever generous and kind.
