Work in field of literacy : I conduct a series of programs titled “Empowering for Future Programs” that seek to provide skill, knowledge and attitude empowerment to the youth and children of our country. The basic objective of these programs is to transform the potential of youth population (Demographic Dividend) into individual, societal and national resources and development. I conduct all these programs free of cost, as social service and my students are inculcated with values of patriotism, social commitment, integrity, professionalism and selfless service. ”Empower the youth and Enrich our India” is the motto of this social service endeavor.

Fund Outlay : 1700000

The challenge of arranging funds is being met : I have spent from 2001 onwards a total of 17 lakhs in conducting these programs. My friends helped me to a great extent. Mr Rajendran of Saravanampatti, Coimbatore provided 5 lakhs. Another friend Mr Senthil Kumar of Chetpet, Chennai provided me 4 lakhs. Dr Bhagavathi of Gobi in Erode provided me 1 lakh. The rest 7 lakhs was spent by me and by my wife, who is a school teacher. Now I am happy that the Rotary Clubs in Coimbatore evince interest in my social service

This Award is going to impact the work in future : The award will enable us to carry on with my programs with more vigour. It will be a tonic, giving me energy to proceed forward with the different programs. The recognition will give me satisfaction for the past work. The money emanating from the award will be allotted to meet the expenditure in conducting more programs and preparing and printing of the study materials and books. I have an ambitious target of reaching one crore children and youth of our country in the forthcoming ten year period and the award from the esteemed organization will bring us into contact with new friends, mentors, public spirited leaders and persons taking the “Empowering for Future Program" to a higher plane and horizon
