Aiyannar was an innocent happy kid till he was traumatized by his mother’s death as a victim of domestic violence related homicide. He was only ten years old during this deeply disturbing event. After three years of court trial, just recently his father was sentenced to 14 years of jail. Owing to this situation he joined Dhan Karunai Illam (like Harish and Pavitra) a few months back and currently studies in Standard 8th. His grandparents were also unable to give him all that was needed. Smiling through all of this, Aiyannar wants to join the military and serve our country.

Pavitra’s mother had succumbed to a motor-accident when the former was about one month old. Though her father got remarried he wasn’t ready to take any responsibility of her. Therefore, Pavitra was taken care of by her grandfather who was also unable to provide a daily meal and quality education. She joined Dhan Karunai Dhan Karunai Illam at Standard 6th. She dreams of becoming an IAS officer in future and wants to end poverty and provide good education to other children. Sense the irony here?

Harish was in Standard III when his father passed away and soon his mother got remarried. The mother had estranged herself with Harish and his siblings. Harish’s grandfather, a septuagenarian, had take care of him. Due to his old age, and financial condition, he couldn’t provide the needed facilities like education and food to him. While studying instandard 6th, Harish joined Dhan Karunai Illam. Passionate about farming, Harish hopes to become an agriculture officer one day.

Just like them there are 52 children (39 girls and 13 boys) Who reside at Dhan Karunai Illam who have their own helpless and incomparable stories!Adding to these individual scenarios, these unprivileged children had to suffer the common consequences of COVID-19 which had ruthlessly waved its tentacles into every fabric of society. Like all rural children in India and other developing counties, they had to live with the digital divide and thus were forced to leave education. Knowledge and socializing for them, came to an abrupt standstill. The refuge they came to seek couldn’t accommodate this modern demand or need. We see marketing campaigns of coding classes for school kids, but codes couldn’t be run on blackboards or notebooks. Buzzwords like Artificial Information, Machine Learning find resonance across every form of media, yet these children haven’t seen the paint application we had the chance to play and learn with. If you’re reading this, it must be through a digital device in the comfort of your home or office. Wouldn’t it be just humanly kind enough to contribute for this cause, where one day these same children could write you an e-mail thanking you for your selflessness!
The fund, which you are donating will be used for providing digital - IT knowledge to these children and make ready to face the challenging world in the near future. Who are we?
