POSITIVE RESPONSE CLUB

The positive response club was started 2005 with the innovative idea of Dr. Vasanthavathy, the then principal of the college, and it grew with leaps and bounds during the principal ships of Dr. Sinthikayal and Dr. Nirmala Nallathamby. Now the club has an adopted strength of 24 families which is decided to be increased to 25 from this year. The objectives of the club are


  • 1. To adopt Vadalivillai as the positive village of the college.

  • 2. To work hand in hand with the red- ribbon club of the college.

  • 3. To help the HIV positive people of the village especially the widows to live with the small help given to them and prayers.

  • 4. To enable the HIV widows to work with as much support as possible and counseling.

  • 5. To support them by trying to increase their income with funds from outside sources in the long run with collaboration with other agencies.

  • During that time one family was adopted from Vadalivillai and it rose to three families in 2007. Every month Rs. 200 worth of nutritious food was given to each adopted family. Now it has risen to Rs. 400/- family this year. Every year free clothes for the whole family of adopted patients is given sponsored by each department. Last year a boy of the affected family was given Rs. 10,000. In 2014 the principal donated bags to 55 affected students.
