Koottarivu is a project by Team Prayaana to help the students comeback strongly to their studies by providing classes on trauma management, study skills, donating stationery etc. Our Fellows who are Engineering college students as well as housewives are now adopting some of these students to help them. Our young teachers – who are students themselves volunteer for this unique initiative by adopting one or more students in their neighbourhood to coach them, to provide them the emotional strength to undertake their studies. The young minds also need to be trained about basic cleanliness, discipline, personal hygiene and supporting their parents in rebuilding their homes. We also have a team of qualified housewives who are volunteering for this cause and are ready to provide tuition support for selected students Koottarivu stands for a unique model of sharing knowledge by peer group support spearheaded by senior students themselves. You can also do your bit now by supporting this cause! Help us build pride for these students !
