Thanks to Mr.Ravi from India Sudar, we could deploy couple of teachers at his village school. The teachers are doing wonderful job is the feedback we have from people. One of the teacher's wanted to move on due to personal reasons and Ravi has found another replacement teacher Ms.Gnanasundari. Her salary would be 1000rs per month.
Also, from this year we wanted to give Ms.Mary an increment of 300rs per month, so her salary would be 1500rs per month. Attached the project reports for the same. I shall forward another email where Ravi sent us the snaps of the village school.
Let us hope our efforts towards empowering kids would continue in right direction. Our sincere thanks to IS Mr.Udhay, Mr.Shiva and Mr.Ravi for their support.
When I visited Primary Welfare School, Vallam Village, Tharangambadi taluk last year,
There were around 98 students
It is kind of very remote village and you can reach through mini-bus twice or thrice in a day.
there were two teachers including headmaster.
I heard from HM that the other teacher goes on medical leave most of the time and he was badly looking for transfer as well
There were only three old classrooms and all were in very bad shape (it was dangerous).
Students were coming to school for mid day meal purpose
Even 5th Standard student could not read his text book fluently, when i interacted
This year update (27th July 2009)
- DI2020 deployed two teachers and we could see that proper school is running now.

- Two new classrooms constructed with SSA funding and they will be moving to new classrooms soon
- When I visited on 27th July 2009, SSA inspector was there. She appreciated our work and told me that she would take this news to SSA.

Comment from Mid Day Meal teacher in the same school
"I'm here for more 28 years and happy to see the school is functioning with teachers and classes properly after so many years"
I would say Dream India 2020 has done a very good job for 92 vallam village student's education and created two rural employment by deploying two teachers as well.
