Work in field of literacy : Started this school from my own funds in 1994, at a time when there were no school around 5 KMs. All our students are from the surrounding slum area and can not afford any fee. Still we run LKG to 5th Std, in both English and Tamil Medium. We have around 300 Children studying in this school. As there is no Govt funding, we run it from our own contributions and donations from good Samaritans.
