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.
