The “Godmother” program is a new Education program of WCH wherein we adopt marginalized schools by means of giving them financial support on regular basis to sustain their status or aid their critical financial situations and even uplift the economic condition of the school.”, explained by Torres. She added, “schools who qualify as our adoptees are those you may consider very poor, most often located in far flung areas in developing countries, and experiencing economic hardships, that when we come in. We not only offer financial support but other sustainable solutions so they can keep the schools going and the children are guaranteed to receive education.
Maria was accompanied by WCH Regional Director, Logesh Dhanasekaran and WCH Humanitarian Ambassador, Rajasimhan Murugavel on a 10-hour roundtrip from Chennai to Karaikal. “We are so proud of the work of WCH all over the world and even more grateful for the accomplishment of WCH that’s being carried-out in our area. As the WCH Regional Director in Tamil Nadu, it will be my duty to ensure that our WCH’s mission and vision are being implemented well and we impact the community in the most effective way,” said Dhanasekaran.
Little Angels Junior Primary School is a government approved school with affordable fees to ensure many students attain education from poor financial background. “We are grateful to Princess Maria Amor and We Care for Humanity, if not for them we would have totally lost the license to operate the school,” explained Mrs. Sumathy Thirupathy, the founder of the school. “We were able to solve the issues of improving the public toilet of the school, as well as paying the government fees to continue our operation. And now that WCH is our permanent Godmother who will support us every step of the way, it’s only fitting that we name the school after Princess Maria,” she proudly added.
The school is now named Princess Maria Amor Little Angels Primary School, located in Kairakal, Puducherry, and currently catering to 100 students. The school provides food for the students and other support other than education.
