Professional Experience & Achievements:
Currently working as a teacher at W.P.A Soundarapandian Higher Secondary School, Ayyanavaram. It’s a government-aided school, where almost every child comes from a poor background. I organize creative classes, conduct value-added classes and make sure every kid there gets to know the importance of being socially responsible by trying to give back to the society from which they arise.
VRIKSHAM: Initiated an organization of motivated women to work together under the Inner Wheel Club. We work for social causes and organize awareness programs for various causes. We have adopted 10 government schools in Mogappair, provide them with value-added classes every week, improve the hygiene and ambience of the school by building toilets and renovating the kitchen. Also, we conduct Annual Sports Meet for the 10 schools every year and felicitate the participants and winners with trophies and certificates.
THULIRGAL: It’s an organization I had initiated at my locality (Nolambur) with a group of kids and young adults to create a more socially responsible society. The group has now around 125 members. Thulirgal is budding team of BODHI CHARITABLE TRUST (an organization I have founded to initiate activities like this). Every week we organize value-added programs and classes, and we make sure we indulge in activities like tree planting, plastic removal and street cleaning every alternate Sundays.
Udhayan Shalini: It’s a central government scheme which provides scholarships for socially responsible, academically good and poor students. Currently, I’m the mentor for 10 girl students(11th std) who are this year’s scholarship receivers, they’ll continue receiving this mentorship until they complete their higher studies. Any assistance they require regarding academics related issues, placement related issues or any other, we will help them to find a way.
SACA (Stand Against Child Abuse): It’s a project initiated for creating and increasing the awareness of the current issues of child abuse. We conduct awareness programs at schools and apartments regularly. This November we are planning for a awareness creating road-trip across the country, a team of four people will be traveling via road for about 30 days across the major cities of the country to increase the awareness for Child Abuse.
