Thiru Oli is an NGO which has been working for several years with tribal and rural communities in 3 villages surrounding Coimbatore in Tamilnadu.
Thiru Oli works on programs mainly in the field of:
Thiru Oli aims to uplift these communities who are deprived of several basic amenities. They primarily focus on educating the children in these communities which can in turn bring development in the entire community.
Most of the children they are educating are the first in their family to step into a school. Hence they need a lot of support like regular tuitions to cope with their studies along with follow up and monitoring of their progress.
The educational activities were being conducted in thatched huts near the edge of the forest. But due to frequent movement of elephants, coming out of the forest and walking through these huts, it has severely hampered all the activities.
Thiru Oli wants to build a single 17 feet by 17 feet room at a height of 20 feet to allow elephants (which come out of the forest in search of food) to pass below freely. They could use this classroom for all their educational activities.
Rs. 5 lakhs is needed to build this classroom
This classroom will benefit around 80-100 children.
Srikanth is running the Tata Mumbai Full Marathon on 21st January to help create awareness and raise funds for this cause. Please join him in contributing to this cause!
These children are the future of the nation! They need education!
Thiru Oli means Holy Light. By contributing to build this classroom let us bring light into the lives of these children.
Join us in this noble cause! Please open your hearts and contribute!
