Featured Partner: 100 days of TNFES

On March 17, 2016, TNFES completes 100 days since inception. It is a short duration but has been an eventful journey in which volunteers have reached out to several schools and students with the help of donors and supporters like yourself.

So far, this platform has facilitated support for 37 schools and over 18,000 students across Chennai, Kanchipuram, Thiruvallur and Cuddalore districts. Please click on this link to find all information http://bit.ly/TNFES-Updates. We have donated notebooks, stationery and sports equipment, built and renovated toilets, painted buildings, provided safe drinking water supplies and kitchens. The story of this transformation in a couple of schools can be read by clicking on the following links bit.ly/TNFES-Iyyappanthangal-Transformation and  http://bit.ly/TNFES-Semmenchery-Transformation.

Work continues in several schools like the Thiruvalluvar Gurukulam Middle School in Saidapet (thanks to generous donations from a group of friends and families of Sashikala Krishna, Srisathya Viswanathan and Charanya Sivaraman), Government Higher Secondary School at Iyyappanthangal (funded by Mu Sigma of Bangalore), Panchayat Union Primary Schools at Minjur and Arichampedu (from individual donors of TNFES). Work that has currently been stalled as a result of board and annual exams in other schools will resume in the summer or when the next academic year begins. This includes a chemistry laboratory at the Arignar Anna Government Higher Secondary School in Poonamallee that going to be renovated thanks to a generous donation from the Vetrivel Foundation, USA, painting & renovation at Thakkar Bapa Vidyalaya and Kesari Higher Secondary School, both in T Nagar.

TNFES is also being sought by organizations and like minded groups to collaborate on some projects in schools. It is heartening to note that our platform http://bit.ly/TNFES has helped facilitate getting people together to work with schools independently as well.  We will continue to update you on the progress made. Thank you for your continued support and guidance.

Regards, Team TNFES
