Education of Scheduled Tribes (ST) children is important not just due to a Constitutional obligation to equality of its citizen or special entitlements to ST, but because it is a crucial input in the nation‘s strategy of total development of tribal communities. However, despite the government’s active interventions for uplift, tribal people have lagged behind in education which in turn resulted a deteriorating and falling population. Kurumba community is the primitive sect of Attappady who have less contact with outer world and poor literacy rate. The school is set to provide quality and free education chiefly to their children in residential mode for all round development.
since we are facing the global pandemic, its been very difficult to maintain the cost of running the school. it cost us 6000 rupees for each student and we have 120 students so each month we have to bear a cost 6 lakh rupees. As the admission for this year is started we are in urgent need for funds to run our school for these tribal students. please help in this quest for providing quality education to the tribal students.
