Educate - A small effort

A good friend of mine started this school to educate the rural poor.
An exciting project is SRIVIDYASRAM, a modern English Medium School in a tiny village, Vadakurangaduthurai, on the left bank of the River Cauvery. It is 21 Kms southwest of Kumbakonam and 11 Kms northeast of Thiruvaiyaru, (the small town where Saint Thyagaraja lived and composed his immortal musical compositions). It is in the Papanasam Taluk of Thanjavur District.
It is a highly subsidized school without an eye on profit. The children studying there do so either free or on subsidy or scholarships. The school does not get any assistance from the Government the parents, predominantly agricultural laborers are too poor to pay fees covering the total expenditure of the school. That is why the school needs your kind help. To help, visit

Several Government officials and other agencies that conducted inspections after the tragic fire in a school in Kumbakonam in July 2004, had only words of praise for the foresight and attention with which the school has been built. It is a model school that others can emulate. There is no other Nursery and Primary school like SRIVIDYASRAM in the entire district.
As someone who has seen the school grow, I wish we had at least one such school in every district of India.
