VETTRI UN KAYIL- GUIDE , A BOON FOR
X AND XII STUDENTS
|SOLAR LAMPS FOR SHG MEMBERS|
This promising ‘Vettri Un Kayil’ guide is given consecutively
for the 6th year at ‘No cost’ to X and XII students studying at
Government and Government Aided Private schools in
krishnagiri, Dharmapuri and Vellore Districts. In 2012/13, Rs.
44 lakhs was prudently spent on this noble cause.
Cumulatively for the last six years Rs. 1.50 cr. was spent on
this guide. On request, the books are supplied to schools, in
the other parts of Tamilnadu also.
It was validated that the pass percentage had increased last
year in krishnagiri District due to the timely reach of these
guides in the hands of students.
As a part of promoting ecosystem and also curtailing the
use of Kerosene in Homes for lighting lamp, we
encourage our SHG members and their families to use
solar d-lights and so far 1 lakh such solar lamps were
purchased by them with a cost of Rs.5.5 crore.
STUDY LAMPS TO THE STUDENTS
We are promoting d-light study lamps among the students community to help in their studies. Presently, the Tamilnadu
is facing ‘power cut’ which is a great hindrance to children appearing for X & XII exam, and in order
to give uninterrupted power supply for study with solar d-lights. Hence in Jan-Feb’13, IVDP has generously donated Rs.40 lakhs
worth of 10,000 solar d-lights (study lamps) to the children of SHG members and later on this project
will be extended to other students with low cost.
