This is our project at Srirangam. Schools and training centres for special children are mostly concentrated in urban cities catering to the age group of less than 15 years. To take quality facilities to rural areas, in collaboration with V-Excel foundation of Chennai, we have started a vocational training centre for special children. Started in October 2015, 17 students are benefited by this Kendra now. Shortly we are building a much larger facility at Srirangam which can serve 50 children. We also plan to start satellite training centres at our village facilities in Tirunagari, Tirukkannangudi, Sirupuliyur and Koviladi. We welcome all those who are willing to volunteer, to render physical service in these kendras.
We have conducted 12 eye camps in 12 villages surrounding Kooram (kanchi – arakonam), where 250 patients underwent operations and spectacles were provided for more than 500 people.
In the same village we had run coaching classes for 9th and 10th class students. There was a marked improvement in the pass percentage. In association with Swami Vivekananda Rural Development Society, after school educational classes for rural children are also conducted in our premises at Tirunagari, Tirukkannangudi, Sirupuliyur village centres.
