Mahadev VidyalayaSSS Matriculation Thandalam school

About School

Located on the border of Tamilnadu and Andhrapradesh, this school is currently serving 200 kids, enrolled in pre-school to middle school. These kids come from local backward and farming communities. A group of caring individuals who recognized the needs of this community formed a local NGO to start the school. Their sheer determination, not to mention the sweat and blood they have been putting in, made it possible for this community to have a means of education for kids. This impoverished community has been practically neglected by everyone including the Government.

The Domino Effect

Many times, individuals and organizations with noble intentions come forward to help the needy. Sometimes, despite their best efforts, they are unable to finish what they start. OSAAT has joined hands with them on several occasions, and brought in more help from the local community in terms of clothes, books, computers and play equipment to the schools.
