The Society for Rural Education and Development in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu provides, through its women’s training center, care for 47 children who are too poor to stay in school. The center provides these children, both boys and girls, with a place to stay, as well as food, clothes and education. After two years the children progress to nearby government schools, while continuing to live at the center.
Through the support of the Ann Foundation, the center provided the children and staff members with online English classes, as well as the necessary technology to undertake these lessons, including a good sound system. The Ann Foundation is proud to have helped the SRED give these children a brighter future.
