Crores of Donors

Lakhs of Volunteers

Thousands of Camps

Tonnes of Relief materials

Hundreds of huge containers

Thousands of vehicles, vans, lorrys,  Cars

Thousands of Shelters ( Marriage halls, mosques, temples, Churchs, community halls, bungalows, houses, Complexes, Multiplex, theatres )

These made Chennai what it is now. This is new to Chennai to face such a natural disaster. Chennai had no experience to handle this situation. Chennai would have never imagined getting these much support in a short notice. But everything happened. Very proud to be in the generation and humanity. No words to express thanks to Indian and NRI donors and the love they shared.

Life is so much beautiful with these good hearted people around as.Thanks for everything. We will be back in form in few weeks.

Keep visiting the blog, will update with more links and result updates. All the best for students and parents :).

We @ Blossom also waiting for the results..Since 3 of our QUEST Education Center students appeared for the 12th standard exams. all the best for QEC Stuents,..!

Dropped out for a new Beginning

TamizhSelvi ( TamizhArasi )… exactly after three years we heard this name and met this lil hope of Blossom. Yes the girl with lot of thirst in education is back to us to continue the education.  Three years back I wrote an article “Quest Ends In Blossom” about this girl. After few months of tat she was forced to discontinue ( she attained puberty , the so called turning point in a girls life ) by her aunty and uncle. Then she never turned up….we tried to convenience her aunt but nothing went positive.  She continued to work in the FireWorks office as usual. Our center head always said tat..she is still so interested in learning…but her aunt and uncle not allowing.

Just few weeks back, other two school dropout girls of the same village “S.Sornavalli” & “K.Angala Easwari” turned to our center with their parents. They wanted their kid to continue the studies and the seeked our help to make it happen. So we convinced the girls to start learning in our center from the basics.  Now both the girls are very regular to classes and they are grasping the subjects very fast &  more than we expected. Now both the girls accepted to join school in the next academic year.

The pity things are …the reason for “Agala Easwari” to drop put from school was, she was told tat she is not reading well and she was constantly discouraged in one or other way. So she decided to not to go to school. The reason for “Sornavalli” to drop out from school was, she was afraid of English. She scored decent marks in all the other subjects except in English. So she decided not to go to school when she was in 7th std., Both the girls  parents forced them lil bit to go to school and continue education… but not much.So these girls are working in the fireworks office and ears 1800/- INR per month.

Students from Khansapuram, Sivakasi

New Hopes of Blossom's QUEST

Thanks to TN govt’s policy of no fails till 9th standard. We planned to put “Angala Easwari” in 8th standard and “Sornavalli” in 9th standard. Fortunately at this time , TamizhSelvi turned up one day along with her aunty to give us a surprise. Her aunty wanted TamizhSelvi to start learning again. We are very happy to take her back and promised her aunt that we will make her join school again. ( the girl who was never been to school after her 1st standard ). The good news is she is learning very fast now and as accepted earlier the local school HM accepted to give her a certificate tat she completed 5th standard in his school. Since she doesn’t have a birth certificate or other birth proofs, we decided to reduce her age lil bit and make her join in 6th standard or 7th standard next year.

The only challenge will be convincing her aunt and uncle for sending her to school, since she earns 1500 to 1800 INR per month. If we can pay tat amount to her guardians, we can easily get permission to put her in school. We are just working out for few volunteers to support for this cause.  The next big challenge is to find few mentors to guide and encourage these girls to move on further. With great positive notes Blossom will meet the challenges and make things happen.

Really very happy to see three school drop out girls back to QUEST centers and now they got the confidence of joining back to school. We never wanted to call this as success….bcos lot to go. When they finish the 10th standard…we can say tat we have started our way to success. We at Blossom will take it as a challenge and will make it happen with the help of lot of positive souls around us. I wish , let QUEST be the right place to quench these girls quest on education ( Quality Education ).

Thanks a ton to Mr.Nagarajan ( Center Head) for his quest in educating these  kids in the village. Without him nothing would have been possible. Hats off to his hard work along with Kavitha Nagarajan to bring up these kids. Happy to take this responsibility with lots of happiness. We promise to do our best to brighten the lives of these kids in the village and make it a model village.

note:- Blossom is a Social welfare Org., and QUEST is one of the project handled by Blossom. QUEST mainly works on the Quality Education for rural children. QEC – Quest Education Centers are the place where village students were given supplementary education at no cost.

  We need Volunteers to mentor these three girls and other few students in our center. You can make it through online. Interested ppl can contact me @ “sathishsp@gmail.com” or through your comments in this post.

Preserving Childhood Happiness…!

Just in the completion stages  of the long time pending dream project. Its all about CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE (CSA). When it comes to social initiative (  duty ) I (We through Blossom) always thought of doing something on Education and Child Abuse ( sexual , verbal, physical ). Working on Education is the easiest one when compared to creating awareness on CSA. I always found it hard to implement and plan for this project.

It just got postponed for several reasons..some times due to lack of ppl, lack of awareness on how and where to start, most times on what to start etc., But Last year by this time….sort of managed to get into it and got a starting point about where to start and what to deal about. Since already few NGO’s are concentrating on the general CSA, we thought of dealing with the modern worlds CSA through Online (internet) and other communication devices. With the help of three of my friends, last year we managed to give a start. And due to some reasons..the works were stopped for several months. Atlast now we are reworking on this …and almost done. This time we will never miss it…and the awareness website will be launched in a day or two.

Creating Awareness on Child Sexual Abuse

Surely this time we will make it big and will create awareness in as many as ppl. And we will be a part in saving the children’s precious childhood memories…! Will update you soon on this…! Really excited to see the website in action. Just watch out for this space “watchyourkids.org“. Will be updated in a day or two.

ps: Blossom is a NGO, working towards the welfare of the society. Blossom mainly involved in Rural Education. Watch Your Kids is yet another initiative of Blossom, towards creating awareness on Child Sexual Abuse through Internet.

Equality in Quality …not this year….!

Today’s headlines…Tamil Nadu government cancels the “Uniform Education System” from this year. ( not sure its a complete stop or a temporary one ). There were lot of controversies when DMK implemented this two years back. But still they formed a committee with a group of experienced educationalists. They came up with a system which comprises both state board and matriculation syllabus. It was apposed by almost all the matric schools and most of the government school staffs.

The truth behind the things is…the syllabus is a good one…but its little low for Matric schools and TOOOO high for government school children ( TEACHERS). Without making any alterations in the implementation system in the government schools…the old DMK govt. implemented the system. But now the same thing is canceled by present government. I’m not sure about they did it for a good cause…or for a revenge sort of thing (cheap politics). But its time to stop this temporarily and get started with a extraordinary implementation system. Without a good implementation system…there will be lot of drop outs from the school…after 8th standard.

Lot to go…and lot to see…! Lets wish that atleast this government makes some considerable progress in Government school education. Both in terms of education and infrastructure.

Traveling along with the dreams…!

October 11, 2010 one of the most important day of this year, as we (Blossom NGO) step into 5th year.We call it as B Day (Blossom Day).  Oct 11th 2006, we named our dream and registered it. I don’t know how many will get a chance to live along with the dream…and how many will get a chance to travel along with the dreams. We are lucky to get this chance. Traveling with Blossom all these years is really a bliss.  With sustainable growth and in a meaningful position we are happy to enter the fifth year.

Happy Birthday Blossom.

Frankly speaking, we found to move easy in the early years. We managed to create enough funds and volunteers and we achieved more than what we though of. The third year was bit tough to move due to lack of volunteers. And the fourth year was really a hectic one and we lagged a lot in both volunteers and funds. We faced a big financial crisis. But some how managed to support the usual activities. We considerably reduced the new activities and just maintained with the prior committed activities.

Personally I wish  to thank  jayashree (GG), eniyan, senthil,srini, selvam, shankar, gopal, mari for their continuous support at all the times. Without them all these years could not have been moved. Whatever may be the time and reason..these guys never stopped supporting us financially. Thanks a ton to other volunteers for their  financial and moral support. My special thanks to siva,madan,padma,mohan,angai,lakshmi,saravana,vasanth(vkrish),YHM,nagappan for their encouragement and their positive thoughts on Blossom. Their encouraging words and interest in the activities made us to move further. My heartfelt thanks to all the kind hearts involved in Blossom.We never measure a help by size, but we measure it by consistency. So every volunteer involved in Blossom made a positive difference in other lives.

We promise to take Blossom to the next level in this 5th year.  We are sure that Blossom will reach more people  to create smiles. With the perpetual  support from friends and kind hearts…any thing is possible in this world. Long way to travel…slowly but steadily we will make it happen. Together we can and together we will.

Blossom…lets bring it….!

Because of Blossom….Life is always beautiful and meaning full  …! Happy to be a part of it.
