August 15th 2011 – Along with the Independence Day celebration, Vishuddhi stepped into the 2nd year of Awarding Scholarships. This year it was 10 benefactors (Last year 8 students were selected for scholarship) out which 8 were from classes 11 and 12, 1 from class 6 (She was about to drop out of school due to lack of funds for education) and 1 UKG kid (His father committed suicide and his mother is a house-maid).
Thanks to Ravi Narayanan Sir for his support since the institution of Vishuddhi and to Rajkumar for sponsoring the Class 6 child with full fee. Thanks to my ex-Project Team The Hartford for the contribution (Prashanth had allocated a part for the Trust during the Feb 2011 CSR Drive). This time a gift was also included along with the Scholarship amount which constituted of stationery for the students. I am very happy and thankful to Nalini Teacher and Saraswathi Teacher for helping me identify the deserving students.
Though the students were not outstanding performers, it is their will to study overcoming all odds (Some don’t have fathers, one child’s dad is a drunkard, Children of house maids, etc.) that is to be appreciated and encouraged. Their warm smiles lit up my heart and I Hope and Pray that the number of benefactors should keep increasing with each passing year.
Could catch hold of only 3 out of 10 for the Picture!
