Know your brethren

The inhabitants of Nedugalcombai, a Kurumba tribal village, near Manjacombai, benefited from a 10-day National Service Scheme special camp organised recently by the Ketti-based CSI College of Engineering.

The 35 volunteers from the college stayed with the Kurumbas to familiarise themselves with the lifestyle of the tribals.

After making a quick assessment of their requirements, the boys provided the village temple with a portico at a cost of Rs. 8,000 and sensitised the tribals, particularly the children, against the use of contaminated drinking water.

They cleaned the water tank and made it easy for the tribals to draw water from a nearby well by fixing a pully. To improve the ambience of the village, they cleared the wild growth and widened the roads. The tribal students' hostel was spruced up. A competition on essay writing, drawing and sports events were organised for the youth.
