How does Dream India helped you in your achievement ?
She thanked Mr.Anand Babu, Bharatram and others who taught her with her curriculum during her clarifications.
Only, from DI she came to know more about what a computer is actually !!
DI teams used to give away prizes during the competitions. Those, prizes helped me perform even more what I actually can !! I was motivated by this.
Even, she won second prize recently in her std.XI for elocution. Heartening to hear from her !!!!
What more things you expect from DI further ?
Highly satisfied with the way things are going on now.
Any specific requests from DI and its team members ?
I really missed my DI team-outing last year to the resort. If this is going to happen this time, I definitely like to be a part of it. I assured her, that she is going to be a part of it for sure.
Even, I missed the tour last year due to some reasons :)
I also, wanted to learn Spoken English. I want to understand each and everything when people converse in english fluently !!
The session on dentistry went on really well today, although with a few minor hiccups. The heavy rains played spoilsport as the school that was scheduled to function today was let off and the headmaster had forgotten to inform us about it. So when we went in the morning, there were only 6 of the 12 DI students eagerly awaiting us. Since the HM was not there, we could not use the projector too. After a quick discussion, Aravindhan and I decided to go ahead with what we had and not disappoint the kids who took pains to wade through knee deep water to reach the school.

It was ten years ago we started Dream India, thanks to the great man Dr.Kalam. He is the main reason for all our action that results in smiles in the faces of children from various homes, schools, the senior citizen and many more.
Dream India continues to spread message that,
1. One need not be full time NGO worker to serve people
2. Balance can be achieved between personal life, social life and professional life.
3. 2 hours time on weekends can make a big difference.
4. Positive impact need not be achieved only by spending lakhs and lakhs of rupees
Dream India is proud to tell that we have ZERO admin cost with each rupee being spent on projects. Trustees absorb all the admin costs.
As we move further, we would continue to take further steps towards serving more needy with guidance from all of you. Thanks to each one of you for your continuous support. We seeks your blessings as we step further.
