2004-2005 UPDATE

Swami Vivekananda Educational Society, Bangalore - $3500.00 was sent in July 2004 to fund the "Annapoona scheme" . The funds would be sufficient to serve mid day meals for about 150 deserving students from the near by slum, for about 200 days of the next school year. The meals are prepared by volunteers and the students are responsible for
serving, cleaning and other chores. The parents of the children from the slums are extremeley grateful that their children are getting atleast one nourishing meal a day.
The school is trying to educate the poorest of society. In addition to providing an education, the school also provides lunch to 120 needy students.
Preamble: Swami Vivekananda Educational Society (Regd.) was started in 1970 in order to spread the message of ?Man-Making Education? as envisaged by Swami Vivekananda, the illustrious patriotsaint of India. Swami Vivekananda Vidyashala High School was started under the auspices of the society in 1971. The school started with 48 students has now more than 330 students, studying in different classes.
The Primary school was started in 1989 to provide a strong base to the High School. More than 300 students are studying in Primary & Nursery Classes. English Medium Classes were started? in 1991 to attract the cream of student poplars to the school. The school has built a building of its own ? thanks to the untiring efforts of our Secretary Prof. N. Krishnaswamy and other members of managing committee, in the endeavour. The school is trying to impart the best all round education to the poorest of the society. Apart from providing education, the school is providing lunch to 120 needy students. Asha for Education has joined hands with us in this noble cause. They have generously contributed $1000/- each in 1999 & 2000 to fund this programme called Annapurna Fund. We are grateful to Asha for this help. Several members of Asha. Arizona have visited our school and have felt the need for this assistance.
