There is a school at Pazhaverkadu north of Chennai in a Tsunami affected area.

Vidyanidhi Trust

It is run by AIMS for Seva, a movement started by Swami Dayananda Saraswathi

AIM for Seva - All India Movement for Seva (aimforseva.org) | Non-profit organization carrying out education and healthcare projects throughout India

Apart from a school for fishermen community, it runs a charitable dispensary, drinking water project and a vocational training center.

Since Christian machineries started active in this area after tsunami, the school and other projects have helped in a great way to stop the conversions.

This morning I attended a program where `summer camp' for children was inaugurated.

We organised sports goods, educational CDs, toys, building sets etc

Still the demand is too huge and those who can spare used carom boards, chess, educational cds, books, building sets etc may be sent to the school. If it is available at chennai city, I can collect it and send it to the school. Even used books could be donated to the library.

Aims for seva is run in a highly transparent manner and the annual audited accounts are available in the website. Confederation of Indian Industry has donated a building for the school and computers have been donated by global consulting firm KPMG.

Please do the needful.

All the best

Hi folks,

We have received Government approval for upgrading classes upto 8th standard from the present standard. Eventually we would like to get approval upto 12 the standard.

We have to construct fresh class rooms to accommodate students upto 8th standard. Each class room costs around Rs.4.5 lakhs and we are willing to name the class room as per the wishes of the donor.

Cost of educating each student is around Rs.4000 p.a and we collect just 1500 Rs p.a for lower classes and Rs.3000 p.a for higher classes. Those who are interested in sponsoring students are welcome to do it.

As I said earlier, mostly fishermen community students are studying in the school and we are running a free medical dispensary also in the premises.

We are supplying free drinking water from Reverse Osmosis plant in the school to all nearby villages as the water is highly contaminated after Tsunami hit.

We are also planning to start vocational training courses for the villagers.

All the best
