Thanks to all the donors who donated for Team Everest ‘Back to School’ campaign. With the funds raised, we were able to get two new set of uniforms, new school shoes, socks, slippers, sports uniform to 100 parentless and single parented kids who are part of Team Everest Smile 100 Scholarship Program.
What is ‘Smile 100’?
Smile 100 is a Scholarship Program for 100 Parentless & Single Parented kids who are from a place called ‘Arni’ in Tiruvannamalai Dt (150 Kms or 3 Hours drive from Chennai, Tamilnadu, India).
We sponsor the school fees for all 100 children, provide free evening tuition for them and conduct various extracurricular activities likes Winter, Summer camps, games day on weekends, art day and much more.
The Motive behind Smile 100 is to provide quality education to students who could not afford it. Our goal is to sponsor them till they finish formal education and help them become entrepreneurs or find a job for themselves.
