Sri Sumathi Vishal Jain Book Bank in Chennai
Sri Sumathi Vishal Jain Book Bank in Chennai is a project run by Sri Sumathi Vishal Jain Educational Trust which was started in 1991 when was a need felt for helping the poor by giving books for academic purpose at free of cost or on loan as though many organization exist for helping them by providing scholarship not much is done regarding books for studies which cost a bomb for them that too in the field of engineering.
By this thought Sri Sumathi Vishal Book Bank in Chennai came alive which started lending books on loan which the students need to return back after their course of study which further helps the next batch of such students who cannot afford to spend on books, for this the applications are invited from students every year by Sri Sumathi Vishal Book Bank from in and around Chennai Colleges who need to fill in the details and get attestation from their college principle recommending the same.
Further the applications are checked by a team at Sri Sumathi Vishal Book Bank and based on few criteria like low income of family and high marks of the students, the students are selected for the books to be given on loan basis, which is the usual practice carried out for the last 19 years out of which around 12,000 students have been benefited.
Such helping hand to provide valuable support to the society is a welcome move encouraged by the parents and students whose burden is brought down as studies become unaffordable for them due to the heavy cost involved, so it's a request to the students whoever borrow the books on free loan to make the best use of them and as well take care of them in a good condition keeping in mind that next year the same books will go in circulation to help other needy students like them.
Further these kind Welfare Trusts and organizations that tend to come forward for helping the society much also take note of the technology changed that are undergoing rapidly and should change with time and should provide further advancements like establishing Internet Cafes for the needy students to further enhance their knowledge level apart from the knowledge gained by them through the books provided to them as state by Surjit Singh Barnala during the 19th Annual Book Distributing function held in the year 2009.
Students of Chennai who cannot afford for their studies should thank people behind Sri Sumathi Vishal Book Bank for the free books distribution and should appreciate their motive of making a man of character, with discipline and quality knowledge from an individual which is their aim which makes one to meet any challenges.
