The dedicated staff of the VAT make it all possible. Teachers travel long distances to come up to the hill top to Periya 34 where the school is located.





The proposed project is to fund the 9th/10th standard educational needs of the first batch of 30 children at the school. Since they do not receive govt. support, these children would not be able to continue at the school without external support.





Status as of 02/2004 - Currently, 21 of the 30 children sponsored for 9th/10th are giving their SSLC board exams which will take place on March 10th, 2004.





Provide secondary school (9th/10th) education needs to the first batch of graduates from middle school. Since the govt. has not recognized the VAT for secondary school, they do not receive grant support from the ministry of tribal affairs for their needs. AID will sponosor the educational requirements for the first batch of children in the hopes that the school will get recognition in the coming year.
