In 2015, Team Everest launched ‘Smile 100’ scholarship program in Arni, Tiruvannamalai District, Tamilnadu which is 150 Kms from Chennai. It’s an initiative where we selected 100 parentless and single parented kids between LKG to 8th standard from Arni, admitted them in a better school and sponsored for their education.
We do not run a home or orphanage. All 100 children still come from their home. Their complete education is taken care by Team Everest.
We also conduct daily tuition for them, provide them every day snacks, lunch on weekends, conduct various camps and extra curricular activities for all the 100 children.
