As students from rural and tribal India get back to their classrooms and as the festive season gets underway, the joy becomes trifold when donors come forward and support our cause.
Recently, the Rotary Club of Central Indore came forward and donated bags and notebooks to our students residing and studying at the Bapu-Buddh AIM for Seva Chatralayam for Boys, Indore, Madhya Pradesh. Thirty boys are back at this Chatralayam.
Rotary Club of Indore is a regular supporter to AIM for Seva. In the recent past, they have donated bags and notebooks to the Chatralayam students.
Similarly, the old boys of G.V.K.C. AIM for Seva Chatralayam for Boys, Vetapalem, Andhra Pradesh, recently got together and arranged for dining tables for students at the hostel worth Rs. 20,000. We thank Sri. K.Chaitanya, his wife Bhargavi and their son Amartya for coming forward and donating the necessary infrastructure for the daily Annadanam.
The Graduates Alumni Association continue to retain their ties to the Chatralayam. A few days back, the old boys got together and organised a set of activities (games, songs and group conversations) for the students at the Vetapalem Chatralayam premises. This happened after a gap of 18 months on account of Covid-19.
This programme is intended to be continued every Sunday to inspire and motivate the young minds from rural India. The main objective of the programme is to focus on the overall mental well being of the Chatralayam students. The activities are designed to help children to stay away from anger, hatred, and speculative conversations. The weekly programmes will also focus on the aspect that human life in this materialistic world is extremely short and that it is important to do seva long after one leaves the hostel.
The event was in accordance with Covid-19 protocols. The main participants in the programme were, Sri. Prati Venkata Subbarao (Community President) and other members. The participating members were, Sri. Srinivasa Rao, Sri. Venkata Sai, Ms. Sneha Mallika, Ms. Lakshmi and Sri. Subrahmanyam.
