Employment and Purchases
Vellai Thamarai gives priority to recruiting employees from surrounding villages for kindergarten and college teachers, as well all assistants for lower classes. Kitchen, maintenance and gardening jobs are positions proposed to qualified workers living nearby the School.
Temporary workers are hired for seasonal work and construction.
Likewise, the School favours local and village products. Thus, milk, the main food for the 240 students is provided by cows owned by individual villagers; it is cooked and treated for consumption. Student’s uniforms, provided free, are made locally, supporting craft activities.
Planned project: the offering of small units of vocational training programs for girls and boys, in sewing and construction works.
The School historical and futur development is a growing source for the economic development of its environment.
