As all of you know, I have published my first book titled as "En Jannal Vazhi Paarvaiyil" few months back.
During that process I also committed myself to an initiative, which is to start an educational trust.
Today, I am happy to announce that a trust named as "SIRAGUKAL EDUCATIONAL AND CHARITABLE TRUST" has been registered in Tamil Nadu, India.
What is the goal ?
The primary goal is to support initiatives in education for the poor kids in rural areas of Tamil Nadu.
When I briefed my Idea for a trust, my family and close relatives welcomed it.
But, I know from my bottom of my heart that this requires lot of commitment and time. After lot of thoughtful consideration, I decided to go forward to help the needy and start this trust.
Other than me there are four more trustees in India. One of them is a school teacher and another is a HR executive. All of them have the tendency to help others.
Thinking of completing at least one project for every quarter, which depends on the size of the project as well.
Even I have strategy to raise the fund from volunteers interested to contribute.
What are the next steps?
As first step, I will be donating ALL book sales proceeds to Siragukal.
We are working with a teacher friend to donate books and other library items for a government school near Thiruvarur, Tamil Nadu. Will keep you posted.
This is a small first step towards the beginning a long journey. please reach out me if you have any suggestions and wish me all the best!.
