How have we helped?
The funds were raised by 21st Century Leaders through the sale of Whatever It Takes products.
Funds donated by 21st Century Leaders were used to support the college education of Rajapathi. Rajapathi and his family live in the Jawadhi Hills – a tough, drought-stricken region with no proper roads, with restricted access to education and healthcare. Despite this, encouraged by his dying father, Rajapathi focused on his schooling and achieved the highest school grades in the region.
Rajapathi has a dream to save lives and is dedicated to working in the health profession as a nurse. However, with his father's passing, and college education costing over 100 times his mother's salary, he required assistance to make his dream come true.
About The Sebastian Hunter Memorial Trust
The Sebastian Hunter Memorial Trust was founded in 2002 when Anna Hunter and her family decided to sponsor and help rebuild a primary school, located in the rural village of Senji Mottur, one of the poorest villages in Tamil Nadu, India. The school was built in memory of her son Sebastian who died at the beginning of what should have been a gifted and productive life.
Today, the trust aims to reach out to the poorest and most vulnerable in Tamil Nadu. Since building commenced at Senji Mottur, the charity and its projects have grown, and they now are proud to now be working with three different schools, of all educational levels, an orphanage, a Leprosy Hospital as well as multiple struggling rural villages.
