Alumni of Chemical Engineers Stream of 1974-1979 Batch from Annamalai University have initiated a Charitable Trust focusing Education for poor students.
We have registered the ACE 1979 Charitable Trust on 26th February 2016. We decided to focus on Education and Primary Education in particular. Hence, search for deserving schools began. We were able to identify three Panchayat Union Primary Schools (PUPS) in Thiruvallur district in Tamilnadu, India. We visited all three schools at Budur, Marambedu and Arumandhai and understood needs of the school children. We gauged that basic necessities that would be available in any prominent school in the city were missing and this was affecting the students.
We donated Fans, School Bells, Wall clocks, Stationary, Sports accessories and many books. When the children saw new infrastructure for their school, they were excited and their smiles were infectious.
We also distributed Chairs, Tables, DVD player and various books to Budur School.
Total cost is estimated at Rs. 2,04,000 ( Rupees Two Lakhs Four Thousand only ). ACE1979 Charitable Trust will contribute Rs.29,000. Hence, we are crowr-sourcing for Rs.1,75,000 ( Rupees One Lakh Seventy Five thousands only ).
We all appreciate your support in this noble cause.
