MART 100 decided to build 2 classrooms FTE project. The project was at Panchayat Uinion Primary School , Mannivakkam. The school is situated in suburbs of Chennai at Mannivakkam, nearly 30km away from the City. The school has 181 children and the need for the classroom was very high as the strength of the school reduced from 260 to 181 due to lack of sitting place for the students.
We had approached the headmistress and she readily agreed to co-operate and got us all the clearances to start the project. We submitted our proposal for a cost of Rs. 12,27,435.00/- for the 2 classrooms. The approval come with a grant of 6 lakhs rupees for 2 classrooms.
The project was constructed under the Chairmanship Tr Vikas Bhootra.
The project was handled by project conveners Tr Satish Mehta of MART 100 and with the support of tablers and circlers of MART 100
The building was completed in 2.5 months and inaugurated in the presence of Area Chairman, Tr Akshay Dugar. It was well attended by tablers and circlers of MART 100.
The principal was quite happy with outcome and has ensured MART 100 is present is all their important events to show their gratitude towards and organization who helped them in their time of need.
“A child without education is a bird without wings”- Tibetan Proverb.
With Indians ever increasing polulation the biggest challenge and the matter of concern is to provide quality education for every child born. Though the Indian government has been partially successful in increasing the literacy rate percentage however there still exits a major gap. Indias majority population lives in rural and yet there are countless villages where the children are not even getting the basic education properly. Illiteracy is a self fulfilling curse that perpetuates the chain of pverty, degradation and child labour. Round Table India has very well taken this initiative to reach out to these areas where the goverment is yet to lay its eyes upon.
The Victorians too after having collected enough funds through fund raising projects took the initative of inaugrating a school in one of the remotest parts of Bengal.
Fleet of cars in a queue drove down an hour north to reach the narrow lanes of the village. The narrow lane opened to a large ground . The villagers and the children were waiting anxiously for our arrival. When we arrived we had a very warm welcome from the local folks with welcome music, and few performances by the local kids. The podium was neatly kept on the stage with Round Table Banners along with KVRT-227 logos all around. After a small speech from the school caretakers and the local politicians we briefed the locals about the whole Tabling Movement. It was a good publicty for RTI as no one in the village had heard about us.
We would like to express our whole hearted appreciation towards the National Dignitaries who took out time to make the event a grand success. To mention the names National President Tr. Chritopher Arvinth, Area Vice Chairman Tr. Vivek Dalmia and others who were present to grace the occasion.
The total outlay of the project was Rs 24 lacs out of which Rs 7 Lacs we received from the RTI fund. Total of four classrooms were constructed by us. Total of 2500 kids in the school this was an additional block constructed by us to add capacity and quality to the existing block. Absence of any good school nearby there was urgent need for a project like this.
With loads of thanks and appreciation the locals greeted us whole heartedly. The smiles on the face of the children was a beautiful sight. Now they too can study and get a direction in their lives.
A glorious first half of the day was well spent. True to the defination of the word pure team work we Victorians embarked on yet another journey in the persuit of education the underpriviledged.

Health, sanitation, safe drinking water and clean air is the need of the hour for all mankind. Because of our carefree attitude towards mother earth we are forgetting to what mess we are putting ourselves and our future generation into. If we don’t take immediate actions, natural calamities and unknown diseases will slowly start to wipe us and make us history like dinosaurs
Apart from the RTI motto of “Freedom Through Education” we the Victorians keep the
above facets in mind. Nurturing the underpriviledged in villages by building better
infrastructure for schools we also make sure that the institution educates the importance of the above threats to the children.
Coca Cola collaborated with us in spearheading this cause by giving us generously a grant allotment to the tune of Rs 2,50,000. We used this fund by adding Rs 3,52,923 (total Rs 6,02,923) from our own Table fund to construct toilets, playground (badminton court), and water filter for the children in the above mentioned school. Keeping the environment in mind the Go Green Project was also initiated by us by planting saplings in the ground of the school.
This project witnessed National Dignitories like National Secretary Tr. Piyush Daga, Area
Chairman Tr. Vivek Dalmia, and fellow tablers from AREA 4. We thank all of them to make our project successful and specially the Coke Company.

Ludhiana Invincibles Round Table 202 celebrated The International day of Older Persons at Vivekanand Swarg Ashram Trust with senior citizens. The event saw donation of medicines, fruits, house hold requirements such as shampoos, tooth paste, oil etc and cakes. The theme was * Age is just a number* and the oldies danced to music, sang songs, bhajans and taught some Vedic math to kids.
The best part was when in the end they asked entire RTI team to stand and prayed for us for longer lives. Just brought tears to our eyes. Time is what they need the most.
