Volunteering Together for Service
Maranna Gounder School, Coimbatore, Tamilnadu
Donate any amount
Maranna Gounder High School started a few years back by the local good samaritans to educate the children of under privileged. It was started with a view to provide quality education for the downtrodden people living in the surroundings. It is situated in Sullivan street which is in the heart of the city. The children studying in that school are those whose parents are daily wage earners and are doing menial jobs like helpers in building work etc. So it is known that they even struggle to pay their nominal fees regularly. Last April the first set of students passed their 10th standard board examinations . The total strength of the school is 600
The school was built by donations from local philanthropists but lacks some basic facilities like toilets, laboratory etc. Currently the students and staff have to use the toilets of a school adjacent to this one.
According to survey conducted by government of India, 23% girls drop out of school due to lack of toilets. This is exactly the case in this school, to prevent the dropouts and save the pride of our students, VTSeva volunteers in Coimbatore have taken up the task to build toilets for this school using best practices of cost efficiency and environmental friendly design.
Based on the design to build toilets in the most effective way and that would be able to cater for 600+ students, cost is coming up to Rs: 10 lakhs (~$15365.75) for materials and construction. VTSeva is reaching out to all the generous hearts to support this project and help these 600+ underprivileged students and the school that is build to educate thousands of such children in the future. 100% of the funds collected goes towards the cause. VTSeva coimbatore volunteers are on site to volunteer and oversee the project.
Please support this cause and forward to all your kind hearted friends to also come forward.
