It was a rainy welcome on the day when I went to Yercaud hill station with my students, my students have a program to uplift village in curriculum wise and it’s named in the college as “Community Development Program”. They took it with interest, started this work before three weeks I didn’t went to a day program since I didn’t feel going over there. On that day itself my students focused on a school in Yercaud. Nobody knows that Yercaud has around 48 schools. Even after having 48 schools in the entire taluk, students discontinue their education due to several reasons. They don’t like to study, so they quit school and enter into a daily wage job. Else they were forced by parents for their daily bread. Unless or until they realize the real benefit of education this scenario will continue forever. So my students chose schools and organized an event over there to motivate students to continue their education.

College Students showing Videos to School students

Mr. Easterly, English Teacher at the school helped us a lot in gathering students in a common hall and also arranged us the speakers and mike sets. He is from Tirunelveli currently doing a wonderful job here. He proudly says he has given 100% results last year in Twelfth standard. And also The Principal in charge Mr. Ali sponsored us Tea and Snacks. We thank them with this post.
