Anbaalayam supports Thiriyay Tamil Maha Vidyalayam (High School) situated in Trincomalee district
Thiriyay Tamil Maha Vidyalayam (High School) is situated in a remote village in Trincomalee district. Lack of teachers is a major issue in this School as the teachers don’t want to live in this village due to its remoteness and difficult living conditions. Once a very prosperous village, it was completely destroyed by the war and the villagers went through resettlement twice after the war and struggling to meet the basic needs and educate their children. Traditionally their main income came from farming. Drought, insufficient water supply prevents the villagers from creating an income. Majority of the families are living below poverty line. Many of them are working as labourers in the adjoining towns.
Funds donated to Anbaalayam by Macquarie University Tamil Sangam is being used towards the school fence, after school tuition payment to teachers for 6 months and payment for a volunteer teacher for 6 months. The principal is very grateful for this support as this will encourage the teachers to remain and serve at this School.
Anbaalayam is also supporting one University student and four year 11 students from disadvantaged families. They were recommended by the School Principal.
