Tamil Engineers Foundation donated a sum of Rs.180,000($1385) to Komari Methodist Tamil Maha Vidyalayam in Amparai district (Eastern Province) to purchase a Photocopier.

The school currently has an enrollment of 584 students from Grade 1 to 13. A business which owns the only photocopier in the village charges 10 rupees per copy and the students cant afford this as about 90% of the people in this village are living below the poverty line.

The breakdown of the cost:

a.Photo copier – Rs.135,000

b.Toner – Rs.15,000

c.Additional 2-year extended warranty – Rs.30,000

d.Total amount = Rs.180,000 (Approx. - $1385)

The committee thank and pass on our gratitude to the donors for their generous & kindhearted donations towards this worthy project. We are glad to note that we have received overwhelming support for this worthy cause. The balance amount will be donated to another school in this area for purchasing furniture (table & chairs for students) very shortly.

We are sure the new Photo Copier will greatly help the school staff and students for many years to come.

The committee thank V. Arrudsivah (E81) for coordinating this project with keen interest.

We thank you all for your great support.
