SYMA dream close to realisation .. .. .. moving to a bigger premises

4.8.2019 is going to be a gold letter day in the annals of SYMA history.  We have been aspiring, dreaming for this ~ ‘dreaming big or a big dream’.    Invitation is posted at the end of this post.

SYMA has an unsaturated desire for serving the Society. SYMA [Srinivas Youngmen’s Association]  has been in the field of Social service since 1977 starting with street cleaning campaigns and keeping environment, more specifically, the temple tank and its surroundings clean.   We at SYMA, feel strongly the primary responsibility of improving the Society and helping the underprivileged.  We are registered with the Registrar of Societies. With care and concern for the society, we have been actively involved in social service doing multifarious activities which include – coordination with civic authorities in keeping the environ clean, conducting health campaigns – promoting health care and hygiene; organizing Eye Camps, Blood Camps and other camps. In our earnest effort to improve the competitive spirit and to instill confidence in school children, We have been conducting Child Fest every year in which more than 3000 students from around 100 city schools participate. 

With a focus on sustainable service, we have two bigger continuing projects :

1) Medical Centre and Laboratory run for the poor wherein free consultation and medicines are provided – popularly known as ரெண்டு ரூவா மருத்துவமனை [Rs. 2 hospital !] This functions between 5 – 7 pm on all days except Sundays and National holidays. Consultation is free and medicines too – provided through regular medical shops with whom we have working arrangement. Around 40 – 50 people utilize this daily. We also have a Medical lab wherein blood and other tests are done at very nominal costs. The running of Medical Centre and Lab costs around Rs.45000/- per month. 

2) SYMA Growth – a purposeful special tuition centre for coaching poor students of 10th and 12th standards.  Into its 12th year now, this was inaugurated in  2008 and producing good results year after year, changing the lives of poor children.   This year we have X Std English medium; X Tamil medium; + 2 Science Group and +2 Commerce Group. Every year, we educate around 110 students selected from weaker sections of the society and that way perhaps we have touched the lives of more than 1000 poor students.  

Both this projects are  fully  sponsored by Manpower Group this year (2019-20), to whom, we express our deep gratitude.  M/s Karix Mobiles have sponsored the Educational Aid programme and there are many philanthropists and corporate behind our success.

We have been dreaming of expanding ~ and the foremost impediment in realizing our endeavour was perhaps lack of space.  SYMA has been functioning in a 270 SFT approx premises at 29 TP Koil Street, (pictured here)   Opp to Bharathiyar  Illam.  With the munificent support of Vasavi Builders, we are moving to a sprawling premises at 37 Car Street, Triplicane, Chennai 600 005.  

Our Medical Centre and Lab would immediately be moved to this new premises.  We also plan to have : Physiotherapy centre; Dental Clinic, Specialists consultation on specified dates and .. .. nursing care centre too.  We look forward to the fullest cooperation, suggestions and help in execution from all our members, volunteers and well-wishers. 

The grand opening of the new premises is slated to be on Sunday 4th Aug 2019 – the much awaited inauguration will be done by

His Holiness Sri Sri Vadhikesari Azhagiya Manavala Jeeyar, Thirukachi

The guests of honour are :

·        Dr K Sridhar, Founder Trustee – SKKSM Trust; Director & Senior Consultant – Plastic Surgery,  SIMS Hospital

The inauguration will be followed by free mega comprehensive health camp and free master health check-up – in association with Sri Kanchi Kamakoti Sankara Medical Trust & Medall Diagnostics.

SYMA thanks all its patrons, well-wishers, volunteers and members for ensuring the growth of our service activities.  WE  heartily invite you all for the function ~ please come, bless the Organisation invoking the divine grace of Emperuman to grow and be of continued service to the society.
