NIT honours three entities for exceptional social service

A school for destitute, another for autistic children and an organisation making expensive higher education accessible for meritorious students were honoured at the sixth edition of HumaNITTy — the social responsibility arm of NIT Trichy — here on Friday.
The financial trustee of Malarchi School of Renaissance, P Mahalingam, was awarded the humanitarian award for his over three-decades-long service of special children. Malarchi is perhaps among the very few schools for special children in rural areas.
Based out of Keeranur in Pudukkottai district, Mahalingam has dedicated his life for 72 underprivileged children among whom 10 are orphans and many are surviving with single parents.

The director of Pravaag, Geetha Ramanujam, was another awardee whose services fcor autistic children were recognised at the event. Running the special school at KK Nagar in Trichy for over 11 years, the school has about 63 children. Considering the award as a recognition for her service, Geetha lauded the social welfare activities of NIT Trichy students.
The founder and managing trustee of Maatram Foundation, Sujith Kumar, was another awardee recognized by HumaNITTY. He along with his friends has been ensuring that money shall never be a barrier for bright students to pursue higher education.
The group of HR professionals has so far helped 482 meritorious students get free seats in top colleges. Launched five years ago, the foundation is also the source of fees for many deserving students.
HumanITTy has so far conducted 23 outreach events spanning close to 50 "acts of giving" at rural schools, orphanages, oldage homes and special schools.
