The inauguration function of the Central Water Supply Tank was held on 28th March 2022 at the Swami Dayananda Campus, Manjakkudi, Tamil Nadu.
This project has been fully supported by Lucas TVS, a long time donor of Swami Dayananda Educational Trust (SDET). The 40,000 litre facility was inaugurated by Sri. S. Ramadoss, Group Chief Human Resource Officer, Lucas TVS.
The installation of this water tank ensures that students, teachers and all staff in the Swami Dayananda Campus in Manjakkudi, have access to clean drinking water at all times.
India has the maximum number of people, 63 million living in rural areas who don’t have access to clean drinking water. With children particularly at risk from water-related diseases, investing in school sanitation and hygiene can create improved learning environments—better water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) developments in schools leads to reduced absenteeism and improved academic performance.
In his speech, Sri. Ramadoss commended the integrated community development work undertaken by Swami Dayananda Educational Trust (SDET) in Manjakkudi. He also shared that some of the former students from the Swami Dayananda College of Arts & Science, Manjakkudi, Tamil Nadu, who got placed in Lucas TVS are doing well professionally.
The other dignitaries who were part of the function were Sri. S. Natarajan, Trustee and Ms. Vanitha Kannadasan, President. Sri. M.R. Rajagopal, coordinator of SDET’s activities in Manjakkudi proposed the vote of thanks.
We express our heartfelt gratitude and deepest appreciation to Lucas TVS for coming forward and supporting this project.
