Dear All,

Greetings from GLD Movement.

We got great opportunity to share our love to rural education through this simple function arranged at Alathur village (Near Pakkam) by Udhavum Nanbargal Trust.  Our long association with Udhavum Nanbargal Trust and Mr.Sarathy helping us to identify right students in this area and support them by providing solar lamps for their studies.

Mr.Sarathy and every kids from Udhavum Nanbargal Trust put their efforts and ensure that every program organized there become sweet memory for life time.   This one is not exceptional again they done it.

Fourth Year in a row at Alathur:

This is fourth consecutive year we are doing “IGNITE ME” program in collaboration with Udhavum Nanbargal Trust.   While we (GLD Movement) are working for process, fund raising, arranging solar lamps for the students and ensuring deliver them on time, Mr.Sarathy and team from Udhavum Nanbargal Trust identify the needy students in and around Alathur Village.  This time we have 31 (20 – 10th , 11 -12th students) students recommended from this area.  After verification we set the date 14-Feb-16 to share the lamps to students.


Salutation to Parent and Students:

Even we realized this is too late to share the lamps to students who appearing for their board exams, our team suggested to go ahead with proposal ( Lamps could be donated by current user to next year 12th and 10th students) this proposal also agreed by the students. Also we have the track records that rural students shared their used lamps to their Juniors.  My hearty salutation to these students and their parents.   During this program more than 50% of the students accompanied by their mother or father, it’s really encouraging and motivating us.

My Hearty Thanks and Love

My hearty thanks and love to all the students, Mr.Sarathy and team, our friends, volunteers, donors  they all make “IGNITE ME” successful and supportive to many rural Government Schools students in Tamil Nadu and Karnataka.   My special thanks to Mr.Suthakaran  and Mr.Tamilselvan  who find their valuable time and share their love for the rural education development support.

There are some valuable thoughts shared with students and their parents during knowledge sharing session.

We share our advance congrats and greetings to all the students who appearing for this year board exams and started our journey back to home.

With Greetings and Thanks
