WHEN YOU INVEST IN A TOMORROW TRUST STUDENT

YOU INVEST IN SOUTH FISHERPEOPLE FUTURE.

Kanyakumari district is known to be a highly literate region in the state. However, the literacy rate of the fishermen is very low and lower, so is their chance of getting higher education. Most of the villages have Elementary Schools but not High Schools and Higher Secondary Schools . The literacy rate in the coastal villages is 30%. Many people even now use thumb impressions for signature. Many do not know how to read and write. On account of poverty, many parents are unable to send their children to schools. The root cause of underdevelopment in the fishermen villages is lack of education.

More than ever, this community has come to realise their vulnerability, especially in the wake of natural disasters like the tsunami. They realise that their future is not solely on the sea as it has become so unpredictable and dangerous. Slowly, they are also realising their mistake of not giving proper education to their children for a long time. Sadly enough, when they did realise this, they did not have the capital or capacity to send them to school, let alone to expensive professional colleges.
