Description:

Midwest Medical Missions (MMM) is a non-profit organization based in St. Louis that raises funds to help people in need.

This fundraiser is for Thiruvalluvar Tamil School, which provides education for children completely free of cost. We want to buy a bus for the children, who live far away from the school and need transport to and from the school. The cost of the school bus is $20,000, and we have a donor who will match any funds we raise.

Thiruvalluvar Tamil School provides ethical education for the children of Karaikal in Pondicherry, India, for free. All aspects of a child's education- uniforms, lunch, books, etc.- are completely free to the children. The school is run on donated money.

There are currently 250 children in the school. There are 18 regular teachers and 6 teachers for extra-curricular subjects such as yoga, dance, painting, etc. There are also 2 office staff members and 2 helpers.

The children are first taught in their mother tongue of Tamil and then in English after they have gained their confidence. In addition to their normal curriculum, they are taught extra-curricular activities such as martial arts, folk dancing, and farming.

The school places a huge emphasis on teaching their students ethics. Before beginning a student's studies, teachers first teach love and compassion. The founders and teachers hope to combine education and ethics to create a great society.
