A change in the society is possible only when problems are tackled at their root cause. Here is an inspiring attempt by a young couple, contributing their bit, towards children’s education.
More than 10 million weddings happen every year in India. They are mostly about haldi, sangeet, muhurtham, reception and even the honeymoon which follows later. But how about contributing to children’s education in rural areas as part of the wedding? Sounds bizarre right?
But it is not so for Ishwarya Sankar and Anand.
They are both getting into wedlock in this very month of August, on account of which they are running a fundraising campaign through Milaap with Project Kanava. It is to set up 10 learning centres and 5 libraries in rural areas of Cuddalore.
Indian schools in rural and semi-urban areas have constantly been facing issues of high dropout rates and low attendance. Children’s fear of school failure is a major cause for this.
Their solution for this is after school homework assistance program at learning centers by a trained local teacher. And well equipped teacher-set-up libraries at schools.
The implementation of this program goes like this:
Through this project, they also aim to improve children’s literary skills like fluency, comprehension, speaking and writing of about 1500 kids, across more than 100 villages. This would greatly help the kids in critical thinking, creativity and better communication skills.
After the end of the campaign, the funds would directly go to Project Kanavu. It was started in the year 2005 to help children in the coastal areas that was affected by the tsunami. It is run by Nisha and Gowtham who believe in bringing about a change in the country by improving communities and standard of education.

A ‘thank you’ makes a lot of difference in the way any woman in your life sees herself in your eyes. It might even mean the world to her.
I have not received any appreciation in the past. Probably never will. This is the experience of ample women across the globe. The expectation to be thanked for all the sacrifices she makes to keep others happy has faded. Yet the urge to hear few words of acknowledgement always lingers.
There is never a day when she pushes off her own burdens. She knows not to give up on people she loves. Women in general, are givers by nature and hence, give without asking anything in return. They have been the care givers and lovers since centuries however receive no appreciation.
It will mean the world to your mother if you answer her calls. If your sister seems lost give her a hug and assure her about her strengths. Tomorrow, there might come a day when you would have to make your daughter feel empowered with few words of wisdom every now and then. For the children to feel wanted and loved, you must be able to spare some quality time with your wife and be present in the moment.
