Education to poor children, Scholarships and Poor feeding
DMS Trust helps poor children in their studies, alongwith Food. Our Education activity covers coaching on Saturdays/Sundays to poor students from 5 schools in neighbouring villages who are to appear in their public exams.
Most of the students who have been regular in attending classes eventually come out successful in the public examination giving a consistent pass percentage of over 80% year after year for our Centre. Some of these children also score centum as well as top their schools and districts. Please see Testimonials from school HMs about the usefulness of our Tuitions and their school performance due to our Tuitions displayed in the ‘Testimonials’ page on our web site.
Many students who have benefitted from our coaching have gone on to join degree and technical courses in various fields. More than anything, our coaching has enabled a large number of youngsters aim at targets in life that they could never dream of achieving.

Microsoft has donated licensed MS-Office software free of cost. We have four desk tops installed to give hands-on training to the children.
From the year 2004 we have been identifying approximately 15 students every year who come to our Centre on merit-cum-means basis.
Once the students pass out from 12th standard, if they wish to pursue degree or diploma courses in engineering, catering, technology etc., we provide them limited financial support for this purpose.
We have disbursed more than Rs. 6 lakhs in the past 10 years and over 150 students have benefited so far.
This is an enormous support for them as their parents for the most part are daily wage workers. The men work as Casual labour in the farms or as manual workers in the rice and onion godowns and the women as maid servants. The family income is ranging from Rs.3,000 to Rs.10,000 per month.
DMS Trust organizes tours to IIT, Madras in the hope that such visits would light a spark in the young minds. In the month of Sep, 2003 the first batch of Village Alamathi students numbering about 60 visited the campus.
Since then we have organized at least one tour every year. The itinerary usually includes visit to laboratories and facilities of a few departments and IIT, Madras Alumni Association sponsors their lunch.
The rural kids get a chance of their life time to observe at first hand interesting demonstrations on science & technology and to experience the inspiring ambience of a premier institution of higher education.
On days when Tuitions are given DMS Trust provides nutritious food for the students, which is presently prepared in-house. We are of the opinion that this is an important ingredient of the ambience of total learning that we provide to students who are preparing for their X and XII standard examinations.
