Dear All,


TSNA has been a pioneer in healthcare education at the national level in the past decade. Many of the students studying in TSNA are from families of humble means, some of them being the first persons from their families to go to college in several generations. We are doing our mightiest to support & fulfil their dreams. However it is not possible to help them all without assistance from kind-hearted people like yourselves. Please donate to this noble & worthy cause of educating a child & helping them obtain a stable & secure future.

Our Beneficiary Story

Manjula hails from Tirupattur in North Arcot district and was born to parents with meagre means.

Her father a house painter and mother a house wife. She has two younger brothers, aged 18 and 19. She joined The SNAcademy in 2015 and was provided scholarship to cover her tution fees. Since she always defaulted on payment of hostel and mess fees, she was also supported with a fee waiver to cover her hostel fees. In her second year of studies unfortunately, her father committed suicide following unemployment and domestic disputes. She went on to complete her B.Sc Ophthalmic Dispensing (a 4 year Bachelor’s degree affiliated to Periyaruniversity) and is currently employed at SN Optical services as a Lens Coordinator. She supports herself and her family with the salary she earns. Her work day involves helping patients coming to SN Optical services find appropriate spectacle frames, lenses and other necessary accessories and counsel them with compliance and regular follow up visits.

When asked to describe her feelings, she says, “I am the first graduate in my family. I am proud to say that I completed my degree, that too in the field of Allied Health Sciences. I never thought that I would work in such a large eye hospital therefore it’s a dream come true moment for me’ Today Manjula is a confident young girl and useful member of the society contributing to patient care.
