Sports Day Celebration for our Evening Study Centre students at SPPD

“Dance is your pulse, heartbeat, your breathing. It is the rhythm of your life. It is the expression in time and movement, in happiness, joy, sadness and envy”. True to it, Some of the children who had not participated in the sports events had their chance to express themselves in this traditional dance at SPPD sports day celebrations.

Extreme weather events

About 11,000 extreme weather events killed more than 528,000 people and caused economic losses of around US$ 3.08 trillion between 1996 and 2015. Which countries faced the maximum brunt? How can we prevent and prepare? The statistics is intimidating, but it is important to contextualise ongoing climate policy debates, especially the international climate discussions.

Ten most affected countries

Africa, the host region of the UN climate summit 2016, is severely affected by extreme weather events with four countries ranking among the 10 most affected countries in 2015–Mozambique (1st), Malawi (3rd), Ghana and Madagascar (joint 8th position).

Disaster preparedness club formation among Corporation schools

There’s no harm in hoping for the best as long as you’re prepared for the worst.”

We are all subjected to various hazards (flooding, wildfires, tornadoes, etc.). Many people want to prepare in advance but are unsure of where to start, receive conflicting information, or are deterred by the cost of some preparedness measures. While some activities can be costly, there are plenty of things you can do that are low cost or even free. Remember, preparedness is a continual process and your personal preparedness can change over time.

Assisting skill training students with their educational material

Since 2000, SPPD has helped many poor and less educated youth to become skilled in the field of nursing and catering, of which 92% of this number are job placed with a decent livelihood. These students are also encouraged to take up an additional degree program which will enhance their scope for job prospects through distance education.

The support from on-going funders has helped us to reach out to students with their educational material. Picture below – our students who are pursuing their training programme at Hot Breads, Chennai receive their study material.
