Varun Arakattalai, a Non- Profit entity of Radiance Realty Developers Ltd has been established to bring about a sustainable and positive change in the lives of underprivileged children, youth, women and communities. The foundation’s major goal is to create a community where passionate people thrive, excel and lead collaborative efforts to solve the community’s imperative challenges.
After conducting a detailed study of the needs, aspirations and challenges of the community, Varun Arakattalai chose the Patinampakkam community to instrument its initial welfare activities. Few of the challenges articulated by them were Lack of employment skills, financial resources and parental support. As its first step the foundation has used sports as an instrument to promote health, education and empowerment.
Qualifying aspects include a score of over 90 per cent in the Standard 10 Board Examinations and the aspiration to make it big in life – many of the girls come from very humble backgrounds but they are optimistic and dream of blazing their own trail. Choices include joining the Public Services, or becoming chartered accountants and entrepreneurs
Girls from economically less privileged backgrounds tend to lack fluency in English, display low self-confidence and have little exposure to technology. Above all, the financial constraints their families face hold them back from achieving their goals. However, the parents of these girls are extremely supportive of their daughters’ success and believe firmly in women’s potential to impact the world positively. In addition to financial assistance, mentoring, and classes in spoken English, goal setting and meditation classes will be provided to the recipients. The Global Adjustments Foundation is confident that these girls will excel in the fields that they choose to go into and bring laurels to their families and to the nation. Past years’ recipients have secured jobs at top notch companies such as TCS and Cognizant, and some have become entrepreneurs as well.
