We are proud to announce that we have entered into a partnership with Shishu Shakthi and Siragu, two Chennai based Non Governmental Organizations (NGO).
Shishu Shakthi is the brain child of S. Soundarya and S. Jayalakshmi. Shishu Shakthi started work at the Girls Juvenile Home in Purasawalkam. From that humble start it has moved on to various NGO's and instituitions like the Boys Juvenile Home, Seva Samajan Girls Home, Rasa, Swabodhini, Pathai, Nethrodaya, Turning Point, Swayam Charitable Trust and many more. It has also been concentrating on individual sponsorship of education of needy children coming from various backgrounds.
Siragu is a learning space for street children, children rescued from begging and other deprived children of the society. Siragu was started in June 2003 by Suyam Charitable Trust. Located in Chennai, India, the school was started with the sole aim of educating first generation students of scheduled tribes and other economically deprived communities.
