In order to eradicate poverty, first we need to educate the poor. In order to change a nation, first we need to change the way of their thinking. Therefore eradicating poverty means changing a nation. There are so many children out there who are very smart, yet have a very limited opportunity to receive the best of life. As a continuation of Church MakeOver program, we work together with those Churches to see beyond their perimeters and find less fortunate families but not willing to settle with their present condition.
AdikkuSayang, a scholarship program for the less fortunate yet keen to learn children. Not only do we send them to school, give them school uniforms and supplies, but we give them breakfast (in the form of a boiled egg and a glass of milk), because we believe breakfast is a very important meal of the day. If they start the day with the right nutrition, they will certainly be able to concentrate and do well in their classes.
We provide them with tuition every other day to assist them more to become excellent not just average. On top of that twice a year during school holidays, we will take them for fun yet educational outings.
