Tamil Engineers Foundation provides child scholarships to approximately 100 children in North & East of SL. Most of these children have lost one or both of their parents during the troubles and live under poverty line. Some of these children are living at orphanages. These child sponsorship schemes are being implemented through many community organisations such as, · Sivan Arul Illam of Thiruketheswarm, · Mahadeva Archiramam at Kilinochchi · Karuvi Organisation at Jaffna · AATI – Australian Association of Trincomalee · Uravuchcholai at Kilinochchi · Jaffna Hindu College Group in Vanni Many of these children receive the child sponsorships from our members facilitated by TEF, of the100 children who get the child sponsorships from TEF, about 53 children are being managed by CCYE through Sivan Arul Illam. As requested by CCYE (Centre for Child & Youth Empowerment at Jaffna) it was decided to donate new bicycles to the children who performed well in the Grade 5 Scholarship exams recently. TEF funded 5 bicycles and “SAI GROUP Aust” came forward to fund another 4 bicycles, in total 9 bicycles were donated. The cost of each bicycle is about Rs16,500. We are sure that the new bicycles will motivate them further their studies and will be of great help for them to attend school/tuition classes easily. We sincerely thank Sivan Arul Illam (Dr. Jayamohan) and CCYE at Jaffna for implementing this project with keen interest.
