Starting from November 2018, Mahila coordinators of the Seva dals (volunteers) from the various states of India, have donated Saris to the ‘Mother and Child’ project of SSSEWWT.
In Continuation of the Notebook Distribution Programme,10,000 notebooks were distributed to school children at a small function held at the SSSEWWT office premises on the 11th of July, 2018. This year, schools from the Obula Devara Cheruvu (ODC) Mandal were covered.
Headmasters of each school, along with a few teachers and students, were invited to come to the office to collect the books. The details of the books distributed are as follows:
Ms Chethana Raju, Managing Trustee, SSSEWWT, met this year’s selected scholarship students on the 20th of July, 2018. 5 new and 12 second-year scholarships were awarded by the Trust this year, making a total of 17. Students were selected purely on a merit and need basis. 28 new applications were received this year, but only 5 made the grade. Similarly, out of the 18 applications received for the second year (from last year’s list of approved scholarships), only 12 were selected. New applicants were awarded scholarships for studying Nursing, B-Tech Engineering and Diploma in Education, among others.
In keeping with its commitment to women’s welfare, and to encourage more and more girls to pursue higher education, the Sri Sathya Sai Easwaramma Women’s Welfare Trust provides University Scholarships to girls. Direct fee reimbursements are made available for qualifying girls from poor economic backgrounds. These are open to all, regardless of caste, creed or community, for any study they wish to pursue, including diploma courses, technical training, bachelor’s and master’s degrees, in fields such as engineering, arts, commerce, food science, and nursing. In July 2017, 30 scholarships were awarded by the Trust.
In June 2013, a new project to encourage the spirit of education was initiated for school children. In 2016, 10,000 notebooks were distributed to children in the surrounding schools.
Now other needs of the students, such as books, atlases, globes, compasses, school bags, solar lamps and science lab kits are being considered for distribution. This is an on-going project for the Easwaramma Trust and, as well, schools in other districts are being surveyed for their needs.
