Inauguration of 2 toilets block at Madukkarai Market Panchayat school – Coimbatore Metropolitan Ladies Circle 23
In the words of Mary Rose Mcgready, “There is no greater joy nor greater reward than to make a fundamental difference in someone’s life”.
Coimbatore Metropolitan Ladies Circle 23, a Circle with a legacy of 37 years of Friendship and Service is proud to have lived by these ideals.
On March 8th, 2017,we had an opportunity to impact and make a difference in the lives of 150 young girls of the Panchayat Union Primary School at Madukkarai Market, with the inauguration of a 2 toilets block exclusively for them. The project is worth Rs.3,54,286.
The Panchayat Union Primary school was built in 1921 and has 304 children ( 150 girls and 154 boys)from classes 1 to 5 in the English and Tamil medium. The school had 2 existing toilet blocks,1 for the boys and the other for the girls. But it was noted that 1 toilet block was not sufficient for 150 girls,and hence ,due to lack of proper sanitation,they were forced to drop out of school.
With the help of the FTE Assist grant given by Round Table India, along with efforts from the school community and funds from the Circle, we were able to fulfill this dire need of a toilet block for the girl students.
It was our privilege to have Tr. Christopher, RTI President Elect and Cr. Boobulayn, Area Chairperson, Area 7 LC India, with us for the inauguration.
“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” The Circlers of CMLC23 are honored and humbled to mould and shape lives by the simple action of giving.
Yours In Circling
