Thoothukudi : Sterlite Copper has donated Rs 2 lakh towards construction of toilet complex at Manalmatha Higher Secondary School, Sokkankudieruppu in the district.
On behalf of Sterlite, Mr.C.Rajendiran IRS, Commissioner of Customs, Thoothukudi presented the cheque for Rs 2 lakh to Mr.M.Jeyasingh Cruz Angelus, Headmaster, Manalmatha Higher Secondary School.
Though the school has been functioning for the last hundred years, there is no proper toilet facility for the students. At present, 278 students are studying in the school out of which 168 students are girls. Bhoomi pooja was also held during the occasion and the construction of the toilet facility will be completed in 40 days.
The school’s approach for help from various organisations went in vain. The sponsorship from corporate was based on the school’s inability to collect necessary fund to construct the toilet facility and the consistent performance of the students in academics. Mr.C.Rajendiran also planted a tree at the school premises during the event.
Sterlite has been carrying out various initiatives to develop the infrastructure in Tuticorin. The initiatives include construction of household toilets in villages, drinking water project at Milavittan and SV Puram, renovation of 20 noon meal centres in Tuticorin and Swajaldhara Drinking Water Project benefitting 43 villages.
