Primary, Middle and Secondary School
The East West Overseas Aid Foundation hopes to work with the people of Alamparai and Tamil Nadu to open a secondary school in the near future. The education available in the area is of a poor standard, attendance rates are low and very few children go on to study beyond primary or lower secondary school. At present there is no Secondary School in Alamparai. There is one school in the area however it is in a village some kilometres away, making it impossible for many Alamparai children to attend. As with many schools, the school is also vastly under resourced. This is a serious problem in rural India – the gap between the quality of educational institutions in rural and urban areas is considerable, making it exceedingly difficult for rural children to access higher education.
The Government of Tamil Nadu reserves a quota number of University placements for rural children every year. It is nonetheless difficult for children in remote areas to secure these placements, particularly those living in poverty whose families have little chance of funding their continued education. TEWOAF hopes that by assisting with the establishment of a school that provides a quality and well-rounded education that is free for all, the children of UCH and Alamparai may have the chance to go on and achieve what they desire.
