Testimonial - Thangam

Image
Meenakshi Sridharan (a) Thangam, NZ I had always wanted to volunteer in CORD. When I did get everything organised for my 1 year break to volunteer at CORD, I became quite apprehensive as to how and in what way I would be able to help. After my brief training at CORD Sidhabari, I was sent off to CORD Tamaraipakkam which is located about 35 kms North West of Chennai. CORD Tamaraipakkam gave me a holistic exposure to the true rural lifestyle in India. CORD works hand in hand with Chinmaya Mission Tamaraipakkam that has a temple, a free school, a free medical center and camp facility.
