Empowerment through Education
ABC Education Initiative in Namakkal District
TNF Michigan Chapter and Tamil Sangam Michigan
- Initiated in February 2015, in six government schools in Sengarai, Mullukkuruchi, Kalappanayakkanpatti, Vazhavandhi Nadu and Erumaipatti villages in Namakkal district.
- Four of these schools are government tribal residential schools and the beneficiaries from all six schools come from underprivileged rural communities.
- 440 (10th grade) students were empowered with two days of soft skills (self confidence, time management, motivation, communication skills) training that will help them with public exams and career progression.
- 612 students were identified by their class teachers as performing far below their grade level and are currently enrolled in ABC classes that are conducted, with your donation, to achieve grade level proficiency, successfully pass high school and not become school dropouts.
- 3 U.S.-born youth volunteered in these schools.
- Personal hygiene, spoken English and career guidance are being added to the ABC model.
- Plans are being developed to make Namakkal a TNF internship center for U.S.-born Tamil youth.
