Here at Chennai Challenge we believe in supporting local charities. In Chennai we have the honour of calling two local organisations our partners. We have a long standing relationship with Madras YMCA, originating from the Guildford YMCA project. Since 2008 we have also been building a new partnership with Oasis India in Chennai.
The Madras YMCA runs 2 Higher Secondary Schools, a Boys Town home for underpriviledged and orphaned boys, 3 Community Centres amongst other projects. When we are out in Chennai we spend a lot of time with the boys from the Boys Town, taking them on an activity holiday for 4 days!
Oasis India, Chennai
Since 2008 we have been building a partnership with Oasis centred around the community development projects that they run. We spend time delivering English lessons and running after school clubs with Oasis amongst other projects, adjusting the support we offer depending on the current needs.
