Project Update :: SEED (Sundar)

Project Update : SEED, Sriperumbudur, Chennai

I talked to SEED this morning. SEED is not affected by the tsunami as the centers are far from the coast.

SEED is planning to assess the tsunami situation in two weeks and will decide if it can take the kids affected by the tsunami. If they decide to take in the kids affected by tsunami, they will be looking for additional financial help from Asha.

Currently, SEED educates children of prisoners, terminally-ill patients, murder victims, and prostitutes. SEED provides board, lodging, clothing and education of 300 children in ages 3-18 years. They provide both standard education and vocational training.
