RYS India 2008 Project "I Can Change"
February 11, 2008
Youth are the most powerful group and they in turn can transform the society as well as the world. Service by the youth to the youth will enable the youth to build a better world for today and tomorrow. The RYS India 2007 Project "I Can Change" is designed to enable the youths to come and share the experiences in a wider perspective.
This project is determined to repair and renovate an old and historical hostel which was constructed much before the Indian Independence. The hostel is located at 77, Mc Nichols Road, Chetpet, Chennai -600 031. This hostel was started for poor girl students belonging to villages. This hostel caters the needs of Schedule Caste, Backward caste, Most Backward Caste and very few other deserving section of the society and promote education, values and the culture.
This historical hostel has been serving the poor and the most backward students for the past 75 years with glorious track record. Over 72 students are staying in this hostel. At present the hostel building is in pathetic shape and needs a face lift urgently. By renovating this hostel premises many youths can get the opportunity to stay in the hostel and continue their education.
"If you educate a man you educate an individual but if you educate a women you educate a whole family" so we welcome all of you to join in this noble endeavor.
"I Can Change" is going to be an ideal service project because it is concerned about the youth who are deprived of all privileges and rights and living with a sense of confidence.
