Impact

A study by a third-party research agency, Insights Applied, undertook a detailed impact study of the Swami Dayananda Educational Trust. The study sought to understand the impact that the various initiatives of the Swami Dayananda Educational Trust—the Swami Dayananda College of Arts and Science, The Swami Dayananda Matriculation School, and the Wipro BPO, were making in the lives of the people of Manjakkudi.

An excerpt from their findings:

“At the end of the current study, where more than 400 people from different communities, occupations and economic backgrounds were interviewed, we can safely state that SDET is making a definite impact in its intended area of providing access to education to girls and the under-privileged. Children, especially girls, who now have access to high-quality primary, secondary and college education would undoubtedly have been worse off if not for SDET. Young men and women studying in the college are happy, positive and have high aspirations for a better life. The BPO has further added to this sense of development by bringing respectable, white-collar jobs right at their doorstep.”
