Priyadarshini & Dhasarathan wanted to join MEDICINE and Jayavel opted for CAR PERFORMANCE (B.E) course in Foreign Universities.

So far, all these years, we structured a innovate curriculum and students are free to choose their higher education with proper guidance. These 3 students, from their childhood age brought up by us and allowed to take proper decision at right now based on their own strength weaknesses which they understand and prepared for the outcomes of their right decisions.

Arrange for bank loan atleast for 1 YEAR of education
Maintain the promptness in repayment of loan and SUYAM Charitable Trust stands act as GUARANTOR for the loan though the loan amount will be repaid the students themselves from their earnings.
We being the guardian for the students, it is our responsibility to prompt repayments of loan and make sure students get through well in their higher education.

The moment we decide upon students’ carrier to go through abroad education, we initiated our efforts hoping that BANKS in India will support for the cause.

It is surprisingly being known that if the loan is sanctioned by the bank and holding an NGO as a GURANTOR which is going to happen first time in Bank Industry we appreciate the bank official who have greater concern for these kind of children which in turn going to prove to the Universe that BANK’S SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY.

Thank You Cards by Siragu Children

Children are our Creative Guru. In Siragu, we ask the children to draw pictures with more imagination. It is also a class room activity and all the children participate in this. We were love to see the way they expressed their thoughts into action.

"Whenever a guest drop into the school, they prepare a gift on their own, by picking up the leaves of trees and plants and make use of scrap materials available in the school".

"Recently we clent the place and kept all the stuff in one room, that time two foreign guest have come to the school". "Children turned with gift with good packing and when guest got surprised to open it, there are lots of old teddy bear toys inside". "All of us thrilled with excitement and appreciated the group of children who did this job and respect their affection shown to other person".

They themselves designed their 'thank you' cards and we send the same to the donors along with the donation receipt. Look at some of the thank you cards shown here and may be some of them are already at your hand.

Peace Tree in Siragu!!!

Mitra (a filmmaker-teacher friend of the Acchor team) had asked if the kids at Siragu would build a Peace Tree if she gave them all the necessary materials and details.
The Peace Tree was initially done by kids at Ontario, Canada.
The kids at Siragu always love to do anything new and innovative and they are ever ready to take up creative workshops like these, especially where Peace is the issue!
Muthuram was given the details on Jan 31st 2007 about the kids implementing a Peace Tree at Siragu Montessori School.
On the 1st of February 2007, just one day after the Siragu kids got the details, they had implemented the Peace Tree in one hour!
This itself is proof that the kids are so enthusiastic about connecting with the kids across the world in a Peaceful manner.
If this continues, the kids will make friends with others around the world and also influence the adults into Peace activities!
The day is not far!

Let us join together with the kids and spread the Peace in our Planet!!!
