VVF’s visit (participation) at 15th Annual day of Thai Tamil Mazhalaiyar Palli, Kottaipattinam

We were planning for a visit to review our materials usage and its impact on student’s educational qualities at Thai Tamil Mazhalaiyar Palli, Kottaipattinam, at this juncture we received a call from them inviting us for their 15th Annual Day function to be held on 12 April 2013. We were called as one among the guests to deliver a speech and present awards to the winning students, what a coincidence that we wanted a pilot project to launch our tamil translated videos on Class-I lessons (maths), and that we are invited to a function at Thai Tamil Palli.

The foundation is based on one simple principle; a good education is every child’s right and economic backwardness should not be a deterrent.
