Global Grant benefits 1500 Urapakkam School students

The Rotary Club of Madras East (RCME) this year has focussed on Education and Vocational training, with the adoption of a Government School in Urapakkam. The Govt. Adi Dravidar Higher Secondary School (GADHSS) in Kilambakkam, is located in Kanchipuram. This district is home to a population of more than 100,000 socio economically backward people. About 75% of the students of the school come from officially considered ‘Below Poverty Line’ (BPL) homes by the government. 

RCME has spent approx. US$ 72,000 to provide 290 benches and desk sets, playground equipment for many outdoor and indoor sports, 30 computers and a computer lab, a functional physics lab.  An industrial capacity photocopier, printer and scanner machine has also been donated to aid teachers in preparing work material for the students.  A toilet is also built for boys similar to the girls’ toilet complex and garden built there last year by the club.  Many additional civil repairs, electrical wiring, painting, levelling of playground and creating of green areas with benches for children to sit on have also been done.
