For the needy: Collector V.K. Shanmugam giving away travel bag to a girl student at KGBV, Denkanikottai, recently.
DENKANIKOTTAI: The three Centre-sponsored Kasturba Gandhi Balika Vidyalayas run by non-governmental organisations in association with Sarva Siksha Abiyan scheme are helping the dropout girl children to become confident and also exhibit their creativity, said Collector V.K. Shanmugam here recently.
Mr. Shanmugam distributed travel bags to 250 students of the schools in Denkanikottai, Kundarapalli and Shoolagiri at the Children’s Day function held on the Denkanikottai School premises, Chinnapennangur village. The programme was entirely sponsored by the UNICEF.
The students of the schools were dropouts. Most of them were children of migrant labourers, tribal and farm labourers. Some of them were rescued as child workers from different parts of the district.
UNICEF conducted oratorical, drawing and cultural competitions to encourage these children.
The function was programmed in such a manner to bring out the inherent talents of the children.
Samson Wesley, president, Social Welfare Organisation for Rural Development, runs the two KGBVs in Kundarapalli and Denkanikottai. The KGBV at Shoolagiri was run by another NGO.
