The classes are going on quite well, thanx for the successful organisation by Pratsy.
The guyz there are so inclined towards learning that they r opting to sit in the class continously for any no. of hrs. We taught them the basic sentence formations, subject, object, verb, made them form sentences from their telugu case studies and lil on parts of speech as Pratsy suggested.
There, the hostel warden briefed us about a physically challenged student who completed his 10th recently staying in that BC Hostel, Mahindra Hills where we are teaching now (he is a one of the English learning students there-name is Srinu). Currently he is looking for people who can sponsor him for his Intermediate. NewVision Inter College offered him Intermediate free of cost, but he could not get a sponsor for his accomodation.
His case study is pathetic. His family is so poor that everyone in his family used to work for daily labour. Adding to their woes, his father was addicted to liquor and used to harass them a lot. So he fled from home and used to beg/work in the Nampally station from where MVF guyz picked him and joined him in the BC Boys hostel directly in 7th standard after a small bridge course. He scored reasonably well(around 400/600 ) in 7th which eventually was his first year in school. As time progressed, he showed very good progress and the teachers were expecting SSC score of more than 520. Unfortunately, he came to know of his father's expiry when he was about to face exams in about one month. He fled back to home without informing to anyone in the hostel and was spending his time in a pathetic manner in the railway stations............until the MVF authorities found him and brought back to the hostel. Somehow he managed to score very well - 457/600. He scored less in the languages .. as they may be the starting exams after he was brought back. He scored around 85 in Maths, Science as well as Social. His admission to APRJC was rejected as he wasn't a student of AP residential schools though he got 8th rank in the Physically Challenged category of APRJC. The warden there is taking him to the Tribal Welfare Officer tomorrow, hoping for some sort of help. This guy is very much inclined towards doing well in Intermediate and then wanted to join IITs.
If anyone has some info on NGOs that help these sort of guyz or if anyone wants to directly help him...please contact Mr. Narsappa, Warden, BC Boys Hostel. His number is 040-2373772. Or contact me, that warden stays near the place where I stay. Presently he is taking care of this guy out of his personal interest.
I will try to help him on behalf of our group-AegisIndia. But we have already few students in queue that we have committed to. Hope no one mistake me that I am trying for fund raising - it is just to make sure that a bright student is not denied the education he deserves!
