Together with you and our local partner we aim to have a direct positive impact on the student’s livelihood at a local level, therefore helping and maintaining them meeting their basic needs on the long term as well as giving them future satisfaction with their lives through a good quality of education, comfortable housing, satisfying meals every day, medical consultations, safety and of course psychological support if needed. We do not impose anything, we simply advise the students.
To do this, we identify individuals too poor to study but are too modest to ask. These include: children, teenagers and young adults (both women and men) either homeless, orphan, living with a single parent, living with another single family member or living with both parents. Basically we target everyone in need for education.
We will make sure the young Indians willing to study are serious and committed to finish a complete training or degree program in any university/professional school around the state of Tamil Nadu.
We are helping honest and hard-working young ones with their application and we help them being accepted as a first step. Our local partners are working hard to make sure the future students will make good use of the financial support we give them one they are admitted to their schools. And of course we assure an organized follow-up every year on how students progress in their academic program.
Our supporters and donors must understand that we work on a case-by-case basis methodology focusing on authenticity and merit for each student. For now we wish to stay a small association but achieving real concrete results.
We are committed on the long-term to the orphans’ daily care and the guarantee of their basic needs: Loving care & Housing, Food, Health, Safety, Psychological Support and Access to Education.
This will enable them to grow in favourable conditions and access a bright future.
The importance of good quality and serious education as well as ethical and qualified teachers. Also, the student should feel satisfied with the studies he chose and we make sure he/she has the appropriate level to start the degree/training program of his/her dreams.
The importance of a safe and comfortable place to sleep either in the college/school hostel or in a healthy relative's home. Having access to a bed and a minimum space to live in is crucial for the students
We make sure the student has access up to 2-3 meals per day (with water or other beverages of course). We believe that a stable and healthy nutrition is a necessity while studying for a significant amount of time.
The importance to have access to basic medical consultations and check-ups and help with any health issues of whatsoever. Basic medications also need to be accessible in the case of an emergency.
Feeling safe is to us one of the most necessary aspect of a healthy lifestyle for the young students we help. As an association and with our local partners, we can help the student finding safety in his/her life if it is not occurring.
We wish to bring motivation and inspiration by spending quality time with each student if needed. We advise, we listen and we try to understand each individual need. We use our negotiation skills in order to find the best solution and/or compromises between the individual's dreams and the concessions/efforts needed to achieve them.
