WHAT IS MADURAI SEED?

MADURAI SEED is a grass root non- profit organization founded in 1999 committed to promote the socially and economically disadvantaged people with special reference to children and Young People in Karumbalai and around Madurai of Tamil Nadu, South India. In 2007 MADURAI SEED is duly registered as an "NPO" under the Indian Trust Act. The SEED represents the children and young people who are bursting with self potent. They need only nurturing soil, water and caring to let them grow and achieve greater heights.

NEED:

MADURAI SEED supports children and young people who suffer from a number of disadvantages.
1) Economically, their families are extremely poor
2) Socially, their communities are identified as "backward" and given little respect
3) Physically, their living environment lacks basic necessities such as living space, adequate study room, and peaceful atmosphere.
4) Educationally, their schools are inferior and they receive little support from mostly uneducated parents.
They also lack exposure to positive, encouraging role models. MADURAI SEED is working in Karumbalai, and around 6 areas which are economically and socially backward slum areas. It is predominantly constituted by daily wage earners, depending on construction, street vending, scavenging, domestic workers, etc.

VISION

MADURAI SEED envisages a state at which, "All the Children and Young People Are Educated, Healthy, Mature, Responsible and Capable of Leading Our Future World"

MISSION

"To Provide a Supportive, Nurturing Environment for Socially, Economically Disadvantaged Children and Young People to Discover and Develop Their Mental Abilities; Enrich Their Sense of Self-Esteem, and Empower Them with Emotional Stability to Promote Personal and Social Responsibilities."

HOW

MADURAI SEED places special emphasis on a holistic approach to developing the children's education in a variety of ways. Via drop-in centers, it offers local children help with their schoolwork and also with the transition to their working lives. It does this through supported study groups and training, a library to develop their reading ability, sports activities, excursions, camps, and a range of creative activities such as dance, art classes, etc. In this way, MADURAI SEED gives very underprivileged children and young people the opportunity to make progress educationally, personally and Socially, and to work towards a vocational goal.

SIGNIFICANT ASPECT

The young people, who had been brought up by MADURAI SEED itself, are now working as volunteers to enhance children's education and skills. The volunteers do not just teach but also provide role models with good study habits - day in, day out, week in, week out - indicates the charisma, commitment and idealism of these people.
