Ramakrishna Mission @ Mangalore is running Vivekananda Coaching Centre for the past few years, giving free tution to poor and needy students. About 150-200 poor students from neighbouring areas daily attend the tution classes held in the Ashrama premises. Tution class is held for two hours in the evening from 4.00 pm to 6.00 pm for 5th to 9th std students. They are also given milk every day.
Every year we distribute school bags, uniforms, note books, umbrellas, stationery items and other study materials worth Rs. 1,00,000/- to all these students at the beginning of the academic year.
This year on the 30th May, a small function has been organized in the Ashrama auditorium from 5.00 pm to 6.30 pm. Dr. Ramagopal Shetty, Chairman, M V Shetty Educational Institutions has consented to inaugurate the new academic year of the coaching centre and distribute the study materilas among the students. Sri M M Mallya, Retd. AGM, Syndicate Bank, will also distribute the materials to the students. On the occasion he will also address the students and their parents for few minutes followed by the benedictory address by Swami Purnakamanandaji, secretary, Ramakrishna MIssion, Mangalore.
