Uplifting rural and village children and youth in Knowledge and Employment.
In the midst of a profound burden of concern for social change and up-liftment of status of children in rural Tamil Nadu, iThots restlessly involved in activities bringing change in the lives of individuals
Ponbadi and village near Tiruttani about 100 Kms from Chennai, India.
Ponbadi is a village near Tiruttani which is about 100 kms from Chennai. Our visit to the village reveled that there is an immediate need in education development for school going children. Children are less encouraged and motivated to complete their schooling. This resulted in school dropouts at eighth grade and lack of guidance and ignorance make them fall in risk category. Children are addicted to alcohol and get influenced to anti-social activities. Young men and young and women become unemployed and struggle for livelihoods.
The health status of the village is very poor due to addition and other improper health seeking behavior. Mortality among men is very high which leaves most of the women to be widows in the village. At this note in many families’ women is the only member to generate income for their family.
We at iThots as a team analysed the problem and came to solution to start a iThots Knowledge Centre in the locality. We identified a location and planning to start a computer center with internet and video conference facility to engage the children with experts for guidance and professional training. The Computer centre also will be conducting basic computer training programs for children.
iThots will continuously engage in children activity monitoring and helping the children in meetups to various successful and popular professionals of various domains.
We have seeded the hope among the children and recorded many of their ambitions. They wish to become a Police Officer, Engineer, Doctor & Teachers etc. We have promised to arrange workshops with current achievers and well wishers in the domain to encourage and guide them.
