The Coimbatore Corporation Commissioner Rajagopal Sunkara on Friday said that the Aram Foundation Charitable Trust and the Robert Bosch Engineering Solutions have jointly launched a program for the mental well-being of students in 83 corporation schools.
In his statement, he said that the tale survey and counselling program will benefit more than 19,000 students in the corporation schools and 1,000 students in government schools. “Schools have faced many challenging situations due to the global COVID -19 epidemic.
Thus the students have become prone to issues like depression, grief, economic setbacks, malnutrition issues, etc. This project will identify such issues by conducting a personal survey and linking them to the appropriate sources,” he said. He added that psychiatrists on the board of this foundation, doctors, consultants, mentors and trained counsellors will be part of this team.
“The main objective of the project is to provide the right solution to the above problems. This will increase the confidence of the children and increase their focus on learning,” the Commissioner asserted. The event was attended by Coimbatore CSR Project Leader Basil Johnson, CEO, Coimbatore Corporation Managing Trustee Michael Raj, Latha Sundaram and Aram Foundation Charitable Trust Founder Gokulraj.
