“One child, one teacher, one book and one pen can change the world”
Pratheeksha – “A helping hand to education” is an educational programme organized by Fishermen community (FCDP) and TheeradesaMahila Society (TMS). Pratheeksha means hope and presupposes encouragement and support. The programme supports and guides the poor school / college going students especially of the coastal area of Kollam. There are many children
who do not have an opportunity to complete their education due to financial constraints of their parents. Education opens the door to development and fuller life both for individuals and communities. We, at FCDP and TMS strongly believe that education is the strongest weapon which can change the face of a nation and no child or adult would ever have to stop their education because of lack of money. The Salesians of Don Bosco have a special affection towards the younger generation. Besides ensuring educational aid, this programme also provides career guidance, organizes motivational programmes, builds student fellowships and works towards training programmes for professional placement.
