Nandiambakkam is a village in Minjur Taluk, Tiruvallur district, Tamil Nadu, India. Irulars form the main community in the village. There is a Primary school (I to V std) with 45 students. School HM Usharani Mam strives to improve the education level of these children.
Awareness on Education seems to be the main need currently as there are many drop outs from school and kids take to rag-picking and other menial jobs instead of going to school.
Based on request from Murugan of Village Vision Trust, INSPIRE Team visited Nandiambakkam Irula village and the school and conducted an awareness session to the parents and kids on the importance of Education and Hygiene. INSPIRE contributed Rs.5,000/- to distribute educational stationeries and snacks to the children.
Our aim is to ensure that all the primary school going kids of the village attend school and have a near 100% attendance in the coming months.
