Madurai Seed is an education NPO located in Karumbalai, a deprived area in Madurai in the state of Tamil Nadu in South India.
Each year, Madurai Seed helps an average of 300 children from Karumbalai towards a better future. The core of Madurai Seed’s daily work is to support these youngsters for two hours after school every evening with their homework, and to prepare them specifically for their annual school examinations. The classes are taught by student volunteers, many of whom themselves attended Madurai Seed as children and teenagers.
In addition, it organises and runs a lot of extra-curricular activities and events, including talks, dance, theatre, art, excursions and camps. Some of these (such as drama productions) are reported by the press, including such prestigious national English-language newspapers as The Hindu and The New Indian Express - which is a remarkable achievement.
