Dear All,

Greeting from GLD Movement.

Every moments are great for us when we are at field for social causes, learning is unlimited, we get chance to meet great people who inspire us to do more and more, Kugur government school located near Banagaluru, Karnataka is also example for the same.

People wonder and asked me many time how do you find the rural schools and also in very interior to support the students through Ignite Me program?   It’s very simple, we have good and great people who want to help others living every part of the world.    This School also referred by the Gunjur, Government School teachers to support the students of Kugur.

The great thing about the school are it’s natural environment, Head mistress and her great commitment to her students, teachers who helped us to support the students.  Of course the students of the schools and the people who gave their lands to build the schools long year back .   I thank everyone of them to successfully support 54, tenth students who is appearing for their board exams.

This school committed with our vision, in order to make Ignite Me program reach more students, the lamps will be used in that schools as a cyclic basis. [ Students will donate the lamps to their juniors once they complete their studies and any new requirements they will keep in touch with GLD Movement.]

I like to thank our members Jeya Gowri, Saravana Babu, Rama, Senthil Kumar, Koppamma and our friends come donors, who made this possible for us.   I’m really happy to be part of this event.   And we are committed that we’ll be supporting more students in forthcoming years in Karnataka.   Special thanks to Jeya Gowri who done all the ground work for this project.   I wish her all the very best for all her forthcoming projects.

Very worrying point from the school is the drastic reduction in number of students studying in 10th standards,  it was 100+ during 2014-15,  54 now   and expected 35+ students next year.   It’s giving me the message that not only Government, also parents, students, teachers and society responsible for this change.

Personally i also committed to the students that in my next visit i’ll speak in Kannada.

With Lot of love from students we leave the schools after sweet distribution.  But my heart still roaming there to find the solution for the question.

With Greetings,
