Every single donation counts. And when it comes from a new donor or organisation, it reaffirms that we are growing from strength to strength.
TVS Logistics Services Ltd donated Rs. two lakh and fifty thousand for AIM for Seva Free Student Hostel for Boys in Kadalur village, Tamil Nadu. This covers part of the student expenditure at the aforesaid FSH. There are 16 students currently living in the Kadalur FSH. As per the company’s corporate social responsibility policy, it believes in providing financial and other assistance to underprivileged students for basic and higher education. The company considers this to be in absolute sync with its mission of educating rural India.
Most of the boys at Kadalur FSH are first generation learners and children of farmers, coolies and fishermen. They are currently enrolled at the Swami Dayananda Rotary Matriculation School, yet another project of AIM for Seva located right next to the hostel. Along with their academics, these students enjoy gardening activities in the hostel. Sunday is special. The boys get up early and spend their time outdoors watering plants and plucking vegetables.
This kind of a time-tested, 360 degree education model advocated by AIM for Seva for the past 17 years helps students develop a comprehensive knowledge base leading them to the path of empowerment and fulfillment.
