unnamed unnamed (1) unnamed (2)4



I introduce myself as the Managing Director of TEX BIOSCIENCES Ltd and take this opportunity to write to your Good self as the Hon. Secretary of Single Teacher Schools a unit of Swami Vivekananda Rural Development Society.
In a country that rightfully aspires to be a shining star in the comity of nations, it is unthinkable to achieve that goal by leaving a section of its own people way behind. Yet for thousands of children living in far-flung areas – in forests, hills and coastal fishing villages in India, a basic education remains a distant dream.
As per United Nations and Govt. of India estimates, approx. 70 million children do not have access to even any sort of primary education in our country. Educating these children is not just a wonderfully humane cause but a national necessity. Your good self will also be surprised to know that there are more than 2000 villages in Tamil Nadu alone, considered to be one of the most developed states in the country where the above situation exists.
Swami Vivekananda Rural Development Society – under the Blessing of Pujya Sri Dayananda Swamiji, Chairman of the Society and the founders of a visionary project is working to achieve exactly this objective. The Single Teacher Schools is functioning under the Advisory Board which consists of eminent personalities from varied backgrounds, who have come together in promoting this noble project.
We are glad to inform your good self that we have currently expanded the activities of Single Teacher Schools to more than 510 villages in Tamil Nadu educating nearly 22,000/- rural children from lower income groups and gives us great pleasure in enclosing the appeal brochure, along with latest report, copy of articles in The Hindu and New Indian Express for your kind information.
In the last nine years since its inception in  December 2006, Swami Vivekananda Rural Development Society  has established Single Teacher Schools (STS) in 510 villages in Thiruvallur, Kanchipuram  Districts. 
The children between the age groups  of are given value- based education in Tamil & English, including Arithmetic and General Science.  We are also imparting Yoga, Pranayama and Cultural knowledge in the extra – curriculum.5 and 12
The teachers are selected from the villages itself and are trained and motivated through Residential  Courses.  They also act as Health workers, creating awareness on basic health issues, nutrition and hygiene among the village communities  On an average Swami Vivekananda Rural Development Society  Takes care of 30 to 35 children per village, and as of now 22,000 children are benefited by  Project  Single Teacher Schools. . It costs Rs.50,000/- per year per school for the society to run the project.
As can be appreciated  Swami Vivekananda Rural Development Society needs  financial assistance to sustain this noble work as well as to  expand it further.  The project is run entirely on donations and contributions from philanthropists, corporate and the general public.
Our Society  has received  the  approval of the Government of India under Section 35 AC of  the  Income Tax Act, which will enable the donors to enjoy 100% Tax Exemption.
Please take time to review the enclosed material. Your time is valuable, so we thank you in advance for doing this. The Society is currently proposing to expand to another 1000 more villages. Your good self can be instrumental in educating 30 under-privileged children in a tiny village, address health and hygiene issues and in general transform the future of these children and the village itself for an modest amount of Rs. 4,500/- per month and Rs. 50,000/- per annum.
In view of the magnitude of the project, we shall be highly grateful if your goodself could kindly continue to support our Endeavour from your esteemed Organization / Charitable Foundation by sponsoring as many villages as your good self deems fit which will be highly invaluable in our endeavor to provide value based primary education to the poor village children of our country. Your munificent contribution for this noble cause will add to the intellectual capital of our country.
