THIS is AIM for Seva’s signature project. These free student hostels provide accommodation, food, clothing and academic coaching for children from rural and tribal communities where 8,000 hours a year are spent on guiding, nurturing and transforming each child to become confident individuals. There are more than 95 such hostels across 16 states in the country. Built close to government schools, they currently house 3,700 children. The cost of caring for a child for one month is ₹2,500.
LOCATED in Sriperumbudur, Tamil Nadu, the Krupa Home is a residential facility for differently-abled adult men. Here, AIM for Seva provide its 35 residents with life-long care and constructive assistance to make them feel valued members of society. Here the men learn activities such as weaving, gardening and craftwork which help develop their motor skills and hand-eye coordination. Just ₹10,000 will support one resident per month or ₹1,20,000 for the whole year.
AIM for Seva also run three schools in rural Tamil Nadu which provide a conducive environment for learning and impart quality education with an emphasis on the holistic development of a child. These schools, catering to nearly 1,200 children from the local community, focus on fostering the academic, non-academic, artistic and creative abilities of the students to help them develop as individuals with vision and resourcefulness.
I have become self-reliant and am now making a living for myself through tailoring. If I had not enrolled in this vocational training centre.... I am certain I would not have been able to find a decent job with my qualifications.
Our son Rajagopalan is 32 years old and we enrolled him at Krupa Home over one year ago... We love our son, but enrolling him at Krupa Home has been a relief for us and changed things for the better for him.
These children are from very poor families; they dream of becoming a doctor and engineer in their lives. The free student hostel has bestowed them with a belief that they can achieve anything in life.
