underprivileged children of Sevalaya get 100% Result in plus 2 exams
Sevalaya campus at Kasuva was filled with the laughter of happy students as the results started coming in. All 135 students had successfully cleared the exams with excellent marks. 66%-of students have secured first division marks. Topper scored 555 / 600, 93%. Each year sees a steady improvement in the performance of students.
Many of these students live in small single room houses with no special facilities for studying. These children have to help out their parents who mostly work as daily wage earners and struggle to keep the family afloat. 13 of them are homeless children, living in Sevalaya hostel. One student is differently abled.
There are at present 2083 students studying in Sevalaya’s Mahakavi Bharathiyar School and more than 1000 students getting trained in 10 trades at 8 community colleges across Tamil Nadu and Pudhucherry.
Tuition centres at 4 locations give coaching to nearly 100 students who have been showing remarkable improvement in their academics. Breakfast programmes in 2 Government schools at Thanjavur have supported 874 students appearing for board exam. In one of these schools pass percentage has increased from 98 to 99.59% while in the second school from 67 to 72%. 125 students of 5 Panchayat Union schools are also getting breakfast daily.
The credit for these achievements definitely goes to the unstinted support of well wishers, philanthropists and corporates who have always stood by Sevalaya . The teachers of Sevalaya spare no efforts to coach the children and spend extra hours in the mornings, evenings and all holidays to sit with their wards and patiently guide them at their own pace.
In the evenings many houses have drunken parents creating a nuisance and children are able to study only because they remain at school with their teachers. Snacks from the dining hall gives them energy and the teachers’ presence a world of comfort where they forget about all the troubles at home and concentrate on their studies. Sevalaya wishes to thank its well wishers and staff for their support without which all this would not have been possible.
There are 2000+ underprivileged children studying in the school in the current academic year who need your support.
