Ramakrishna Mission Nursery and Primary School
UNESCO has established unofficial relationshipwith the Ramakrishna Mission in the areas ofinter-cultural dialogue, social cohesion and a culture of peace and non-violence for a period of six years.
We are sure that you are well-informed of the reputation enjoyed by the Ramakrishna Mission centers around the world in the field of community service such as Education, Distress-Relief provided at the time of natural calamities, Medical Relief to the poor patients by running hospitals and dispensaries and much more.
Ramakrishna Mission Ashrama, T. Nagar, Chennai is a branch of the Ramakrishna Mission started by Swami Vivekananda in 1897. This centre began its activity with the starting of a School in the year 1932 and since then has been growing according to the needs of the community and the socio-economic changes that are taking place around us. This centre through its educational service to the society have produced many students who have walked out of the portals of the School and have become great leaders of the country. To name a few : Dr. S.Badrinath, Chairman (Emeritus) of Sankara Netralaya, Sri Ramanathan Krishnan, the Tennis legend, the Chief of Indian Army Gen. Sundarjee, Sri Y.V. Reddy, former Governor of RBI, and Dr. Nalli Kuppuswami Chetti, etc.
Presently we are running two Higher Secondary Schools, a Matriculation Higher Secondary School and a Nursery and Primary School and targeting to provide education to the lower middle and poorer class of the society. The schools all together has got a strength about 3500.
There are many Schools around T.Nagar to provide good education to the upper class people. To provide an all round education based on the human values contained in our great heritage of our Country to the students of the poorest section of the society we started theRamakrishna Mission Nursery and Primary School. The endeavor of the school is to inculcate good character and patriotism to enable them to be enlightened citizens of our great nation. We provide free noon meals to students of this School. Since the students of the schools are from nearby slums and the parents are socially underprivileged people like daily wagers, hawkers etc., no fee is collected from these students.
Salient feature of this School:
1. It is free School with free noon-meal, books, note books. Uniforms are also given to all the children of this school.
2. Though there is a Govt. school nearby which is also free, students do no go there and the parents admit their children in this school to get a good education.
3. Along with the regular scheme of education, we give them moral, spiritual and value oriented education which is very much lacking in these days.
4. Computer education is also given to these children.
5. Physical education along with Yogasanas are also taught to these children.
6. The School is incurring expenditure for about 45 Lakhs every year. That is, we are spending about Rs.22,000/- to educate one student for one year for about 240 students.
Hence, we are on collecting donation for the same. We are requesting philanthropic public, Alumni, friends, the devotees like you to contribute liberally for this noble cause and help the Ashrama to continue our noble service to the humanity.
It is our aim to actively contribute to the social and economic development of the communities in which we operate. In doing so, build a better, sustainable way of life for the weaker sections of society and raise the Country’s human development index. Hence, it is highly appropriate to contribute to this School.
Therefore, we humbly request you to kindly extend your helping hand to give education to these needy children.
