SSS Matriculation Thandalam school, Tamilnadu, India

  • STATUS: Completed in 2011
  • LOCATION: Thandalam, Tamilnadu, India
  • NO. OF STUDENTS: 200
  • GRADES: Preschool-7
  • OSAAT CONTRIBUTION: Funds to help the construction of the school building

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 school was in dire need of everything – classrooms, drinking water and sanitation facilities, laboratory, internet facilities, school supplies, and means of transportation. Some construction has started but was incomplete due to lack of funds.

OSAAT provided the funds to complete the construction of the school building. The funds were used to build a safety wall around the building and a level playground, along with the completion of the library.

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.

Call For Action

We are proud to have started this journey. We are grateful and optimistic that people will want to continue this domino effect, so we can do more. Want to be a domino for this or any of our other projects
