Appreciate the amount of work done to bring the organisation to the current level. My only request to you is to scale this school and bring more schools for students around this state (Country).

What a nice school, teachers and children! For us it was an unexpected visit and a bond has been offered we should stay one hour but it was nearly 3 hours. It was a great experience to see what can be done for children here and how they can build for their future. We hope that future will be beautiful for them.
Prof. Juch Dick & Margreet - Belgium
Most impressed with all you have achieved here a humble experience. I wish you all well in the future and hope the hospital is built soon.
These three weeks passed so quickly! Thank you very much for a wonderful and unforgettable time in AVS. Thank you for the delicious Indian food and so many bright and warm smiles. The children are so pure and friendly, but also very respectful. I loved to sing with them and to play or talk with them during the break time. I enjoyed many lovely and wonderful moments in class rooms outside or in the bus. A big thank you for making this possible to you and all your cute kids!

To my new family, the last weeks have been the greatest weeks of my life, and I have all of you to thank for that. I enjoyed every single minute at AVS. Come to think of it I can’t even remember when the last time was that I have been so happy. Everybody here, all the students, all the teachers and you Madhan, spread joy to the world all day. I have learnt a lot about your culture and your life style. The food was superb, I enjoyed staying at Malathy, parveen and Neeshath’s house (sleeping on the floor is more comfortable then I thought).

After the journey to Tiruvannamalai, the AVS- Staff received me very warm and from the beginning I felt very welcome and like a part of your family! In the morning I helped in the kitchen and it was always funny with the care takers! Mostly the rest of the day I spend time in the lessons, control the home works, helping with the exercise, playing, singing or just have fun together. The children are very friendly and have still respect, just lovely kids! Also the time with Madhan, Giri, the teachers, Ramana and Ramesh was great! We had a lot of interesting conversations and I could learn a lot about your culture and their traditions. Daily I looked forward to the (BEST) chai and the tasty lunch with teachers! I spent also lots of time in the children home and enjoyed that always! Soon they can move in their new home and I’m very happy for them, it’s a great project! Thank you for this great time at AVS- School and I’ve a huge respect for your work!

To all the students and teachers, my first visit to AVS will not be my east. I was very impressed how eager the children wrote in their books and listened to their teachers. I attended also a karate lessons and the courage of these kids. I wish you good luck and as happy memories as I have kept from my school time.

Dear Kavitha, Vanitha, Sheeba, Maha, Parveen,Jeya priya, Nirmala, Chitra,Saranya,Sathya, Sudarmathi, Selvakumari Madhan, Giri, Ramaa,Jeyaram. I take you all with me in my heart to Holland. Why? Thank you for your warm welcome, Thank you for your enthusiasm, Thank you for your confidence in me. Thank you for the Possibilities you gave me to experience. I never worked in groups with so many children and even with those language problems, but that was no problem. The children and teachers were very enthusiastic and so was I and if I had more time I should have taught you more in sculptures and painting. But I hope, and I am sure it will happen, that you can do it also without me, just trial and error. Thank you for the fun we had, Thank you for your warmth and love you gave me, the last three months have a very special place in my life. I learnt a lot from you and the Indian culture.

Thank you so much for this wonderful experience at AVS. AVS is more than a school. You are doing such a great job. You give the children the chance to get a good education and you take care of many other needs of the children healthy vegetable, evening schools, mobile library, mobile clinic etc. The children learn here many important things for their future and you show them, what it means to be part of a community. You are a great teacher- team. It was so good to see how you share life with each other. I could love to teach back in Switzerland in such a great teacher team. I loved to teach here some English lessons and drawing lessons, to spend time with the children during the breaks and to enjoy some evenings with the kids in the “children village”.
Thank you for all the things I learnt from you for example how to play the Veenai and so many more things. Thank you for your warm welcome, for your friendship and that I could be part of your team (family, community) and thank for sharing the delicious food with me etc... I will take all this with me as wonderful memories.
Mir jam Aurag - Switzerland
Thank you so much for this amazing experience. It’s the first time I’ve been to India and I really enjoyed getting to know this new culture with its open and welcoming people. Teaching English and different scout games at the school was a lot of fun. The students treat the teachers with a lot of respect and the attendance ratio you calculate every week is remarkable. The children love the school, which should prove to you that you are doing a very good job. I will never forget the time I spent here, Thank you.
Delia Meyer - Switzerland
Dear friends, one of the first day’s farina told me that I should never feel alone since everyone in the school is like family. This was nice of her to say but at first it were just words after a while I realised that it was surrounded by a big and loving family, which made my stay here with you one of the best experiences in my life! So thank you all so much for being who you are! Please stay like this forever.
Christine de Vries - Netherlands
Matty and I had a very warm welcome today at the colourful school to inaugurate the computer lab. It was a pleasure to see the smiling kids, enthusiastic teachers and supports. So much energy will give the children a much better future than they could dream of without this school. We hope that the children will learn a lot from using the computers and that it will increase their confidence. We had a lovely lunch, we like to thank all for their love and care.
Alexius & Matty - Netherlands
Dear AVS, we found this initiative of educative moral values to these children along with a planned academic curriculum very interesting and useful. Good infrastructure and opportunity to learn are available to students here. Point taken every individual can make a difference to the society. Thanks for the heads up!
Arun Kumar - Chennai, India
It is really a very good and appreciates work done by the group. I could feel that I have missed many such basic teaching techniques in my life. I would wish this institution students soon reach the solar system which is painted in the class. All the Best, Thanks!!!
