Sakthi Foundation (Sakthi) uses awareness energy to bring happy changes in the lives of children and their parents living in remote Tamil Nadu. It is a part of the Uni5 community. Sakthi was begun when a group of individuals from disadvantaged socio-economic backgrounds decided to give back to the community that supported them by providing education and medical support to needy people.
Their initiatives are as follows:
Uni5Selftual Schools: The mantra of the Uni5 Community is “Selftual” which means that “I transform myself for my own happiness which will then radiate to all those around me”. This is a system of education that does not discriminate between the rich and the poor. In early childhood education, this system integrates other effective educational tools like that of the Montessori education system which enrich the quality of learning. This system of education is currently in operation in three pre-primary schools in Tamil Nadu.
Connecting Adults to Culture (CAC): The objective of this programme is to transform the minds of individuals to live a happy life. The CAC programmes help adults connect with India’s cultural heritage to lead a harmonious life with their family and be connected with society as well.
Connecting Children to Culture (CCC):The CCC programs connects children to culture and also helps them see that it resonates with the scientific laws of nature that they study in school.
Free eye camp: The organisation has been conducting free eye camps in conjunction with the Madurai Aravind eye hospital in several villages in Tamil Nadu. More than 1,000 people have got their vision back after the free eye surgery performed on them.
Spoken English: Their trained teachers give spoken English training using mobiles to rural and suburban school and college students.
