COIMBATORE: Velicham Manavargal, a students’ organisation, has set up a helpline to help to assist students in availing education loan, paying college fee, suffering from depression, struggling to converse in English, etc.

A release said students with challenges could dial 96981-51515 for their needs. Velicham Manavargal had so far helped 486 first generation students.

Further details could be had by mailing velicham.students @gmail.com

The release said the organisation decided to set up the helpline after it came across instances of students being denied education on account of their economic status. This was against the organisation’s idea of ensuring education access to students from all strata of the society.

To further the organisation’s aim, it had been carrying out awareness campaign and walk in Tiruvallur, Vellore, Tiruvannamalai, Dharmapuri, Krishnagiri, Salem, Erode and a few other districts.

So far the organisation had received thousands of applications for help from students.

In Coimbatore, Velicham Manavargal conducted an awareness campaign on August 4.
