Around the world, children’s education naturally depends on their parents’ support. When one of them, or both perish, their education often gets disrupted. In certain cases this disruption turns that aspiring student into a hopeless child labour. There are certain organizations in Tamil Nadu that lend hands to such children in despair and empower them with education, skillsets and prepare them for a brighter future.
One such charitable establishment is Manavar Illam from PSG & Sons’ Charities. It was established in June 1995 by the then Managing Trustee of PSG Institutions G.R.Karthikeyan. The aim of this facility is to accommodate and educate students (from Tamil medium who are in their Std VI to IX & XI) who have lost either their father or mother or both, and struggle to sustain their life and continue their education.
The children are chosen on the basis of application, relevant documents, entrance test, interview, etc. They are accommodated in the Manavar Illam and get educated through PSG Sarvajana Hr. Secondary School.
A press release from PSG Schools said that for this year, 30 applications have come for admission and interview will be held for them after the Government decides the reopening of schools. Students from Coimbatore district may apply for admission within a fortnight and for an interview thereafter separately.
A new building at a cost of Rs. 2 Crore has been built for accommodating more students. L.Gopalakrishnan, the current Managing Trustee of PSG Institutions is very much focused on the growth and development of Manavar Illam. It must be mentioned that another floor has been constructed on the existing building for further accommodation, and it is evident of the Trust’s commitment.
Besides a home like ambience and quality education, the residents of Manavar Illam get free access to medical facility, engage in sports and games both indoor and outdoor with coaches, get new dress for Deepavali, crackers & enjoy a special dinner. They get special lunch on festival days, delicious food (Chicken biriyani / chicken gravy on Sundays for willing residents), nutritious drink in the morning and snacks & milk in the evening. Promising students are provided excellent support through the Trust’s institutions.
