Sometimes, what we don't do for ourselves, we do for others - like, ask for help. As women who are driven to serve others, we are used to taking on more and more challenges, more and more lives we can impact. But we can't always do it alone. We need our tribe. We are here to find you - our tribe - and ask you for help in changing the lives of the students of  Corporation Schools in Chennai.

We are Inner Wheel 
Inner Wheel was formed as a women's service organization in UK, in 1924 and is now an international movement driven by women in 104 countries. We are Inner Wheel Club of Chennai Presidency, part of the Inner Wheel District 323 of the Association of Inner Wheel Clubs of India. Our motto is friendship and service. 
We've been doing this for 25 years! 
Our club was established in 1998 and is celebrating 25 years of friendship and service this year. We are currently 40 members strong. Our key focus is on serving women and children in the Chennai region. Our work ranges from large scale projects like desilting of lakes and creating medical infrastructure to conducting health camps, awareness and counselling programs in government schools including good touch bad touch, media deaddiction, career counseling and coaching. Our Madras Day Quiz for children is in the 12th year now.  

We always create impact!
Our projects create lasting impact, and we handhold our beneficiaries as required to reach meaningful outcomes. Just two examples from last year –
  • We trained 15 underprivileged girls into professional drivers with NGO partner ANEW for Rs. 240,000.
  • We provided Rs. 25 lakhs worth of medical infrastructure and Rs. 5 lakhs cash donation to SoulFree, Tiruvannamalai for spinal care rehabilitation.
Children we have supported have gone on to finish their education, find jobs and are financially independent, contributing members of society. Apart from large projects, we consistently support orphanages, blind schools, palliative care homes and old age homes with funds and provisions, transgenders and self-help groups with livelihood support.

We need your help now!
In our Silver Jubilee year, we are raising funds now to support Corporation Schools of Chennai in a big way, through:  
  • Infrastructure creation – toilets, labs, libraries, renovation
  • Fun activities and motivational programs for 1st to 5th std students
  • Training & Development for 6th to 8th std students
  • Coaching & Counselling for 9th to 12th std students
  • Leadership Development of school Principals and teachers
This is towards the Greater Chennai Corporation goals of 100% literacy, 0% drop-out; quality education; keeping girl children in school; providing labs, libraries, computers; sports, extracurricular activities and vocational training. 
Big projects need big support!
We cannot do this alone. We need your support. Please contribute to helping students who need the most intervention.

Everything we raise - everything you give - goes directly to work!
We deploy 100% of funds collected for projects, direct to beneficiaries.
NO management fees, NO commissions.
We don't do checkbook charity. We get our hands dirty (oftentimes quite literally!) and do the leg work as well as the implementation. We have sufficient checks and balances to ensure our efforts go to the right place, to the right people - and are not wasted. 

Whether Rs. 5000 or Rs. 50,000 or Rs. 5 lakhs -  rest assured, you are impacting children who need your help the most. Donate today.  And spread the word! Sometimes, your wallet can also walk the talk!
