Impact

Your support could help a child build their dreams.

Balasateesh is a chronically ill child who belongs to a poor family. His father repairs cycles to earn their living expenses. He is not able to earn nearly enough money to look after their needs and most of what he earns goes into his wife’s treatment.

While struggling to put food on the table, Sateesh’s education felt like a luxury that his father could not afford. But Sateesh was his only hope and he wanted to do whatever he could for his son. He wanted Sateesh to study at any cost so that he could lead a better life someday. He approached Amar Seva Sangam hoping with a request to help his son.

The organization found a donor who wanted to support Sateesh’s education. With this support, Satheesh now attends school regularly. He is in UKG and loves going to school. He is a quick learner and a joy to be around!

Satheer’s parents feel proud when they hear him recite his rhymes and lessons. Despite all their suffering, they can now believe that there is a different life that lies ahead for their son. They look forward to watching him progress with his schooling and build a good future for himself.

Every child deserves to dream and you could help make that difference for a poor kid. Give a child like Sateesh a chance to build the future they wish for. You can give with confidence because every program on our platform is GIVEASSURED.

Program Description

The Siva Saraswathi Vidyalaya Nursery & Primary School (SSVNPS) was set up by Amar Seva Sangam to provide quality basic education to children of underprivileged families in Ayikudy who couldn't afford to attend regular private schools.

The nursery school provides an environment where students with physical disabilities are placed on an equal ground as those without disabilities. They are empowered to be active learners and participants. All the students benefit from learning in an environment that is committed to acceptance, respect, and understanding. Close to 250 students are served in the school. The continuous success of the various programmes of Amar Seva Sangam has led to tremendous growth in the schools each year.

Donations made to this program support the salaries, transportation, and administration cost of the school. You can donate to this program and help 5 children get access to education.

Story from the field

Subasankari is studying in U.K.G. She belongs to a very poor family. Her father is no more. Just before Subasankari's birth, her father died in a horrible bike accident. It is sad that she has never seen her father's face. Now her mother is the only bread winner of the family. She has taken up tailoring as a profession. The family has a very weak financial status. So Subasankari's education is always of lesser priority for the family.

Inspite of her poverty, Subasankari's mother admitted her in our school. She was admitted in L.K.G. On seeing the situation, we enrolled her in the list of beneficiaries of Give India. She is good at studies and is also very good at drawing. She is very shrewd and very intelligent. We are very happy to have donors to help such wonderful children like her. Donations received through Give India portal are helping such children to continue their studies.

Amar Seva Sangam is a premier organization in the field of disability management which is founded and run by wheel chair users and is totally involved developing this project as a 'Valley for the Disabled' where we have Amar Seva Sangam as a central resource centre with all facilities under one roof for any disability and about 800 villages with 15000+ disabled population as client base (Service Users) being catered through an innovative community participatory initiative called 'Village Based Rehabilitation Initiatives'. Our centre has developed from scratch to about 30 acres of land now with several projects for disabled where we have about 250 disabled children and youth in-campus and more than 1000 day scholars in our Higher Secondary School, Medical Testing Unit, School for Special Children, Early Intervention Centre, IGNOU & Alagappa Higher Education Centre and various vocational training programs. The Spinal Post Acute Care Centre and Early Intervention program are our pioneering programs which are very few in our country. The demand for our services far exceeds our existing facilities but we are able to manage with fast turnaround of patients and strong village based and Home based follow-ups post discharge.

Siva Saraaswathi Vidyalaya Nursery School, run by Amar Seva Sangam is an inclusive school which educates both the disabled and non-disabled children under an inclusive atmosphere, so that both children get mingled and the normal children understand the disabled children's constraints, also the disabled children feel very closer to everybody. This removes the inferiority complex from the minds of the differently abled child. In addition, the normal children learn to treat every body equal.

Most of our students are belong to very poor family. Any child should not be dropped out of the school for want of money.

Hence, the donations from all well-wishers help the students to continue their studies.

Expected total number of beneficiaries in this program for FY18-19 : 250 Total Budget for the project for FY18-19 : INR 1749000

Action-packed days for the children at Amar Seva Sangam!

#1

The last couple of months have been very eventful for children at the school, thanks to the many events and activities that they were a part of. Some of them are listed below: The students participated in various district level competitions conducted by the Govt. of Tamil Nadu in December, and won prizes in drawing, speech and quiz competitions. They also won prizes in extempore, memory games, singing, quiz and drawing competitions, conducted by the Vivekananda Kendra in Kanyakumari in January. Apart from competitions, the children enjoyed going on an excursion to Thekkadi, Suruli falls, and Vaigai Dam with their friends.

The highlight of the eventful quarter though, was when the differently abled students won the Championship Trophy at the State Level Sports meet in Chennai for the 16th consecutive time! The school also celebrated the Annual day with great pomp and show in February in which students of all classes participated with great enthusiasm.
