We all have the dream for serving the community we live.
Sometimes we donate money, sometimes cloths.
Sometime we contribute to Free Open Source Software by writing code, documenting, meeting, spreading the freedom and more.
Some people teach to poor students. They give free education to them.
Some people donate books and notes.
Some people takes care of their education expenses.
Still, the free education for poor students with quality is a dream in most places.
The government schools are so pathetic as they can’t give quality education.
It is the time for proving our contributions towards quality free education.
Most of us may having a dream for helping the students by teaching them, by giving the quality materials and computer with internet access.
Here, some energetic young people, join together to make their dreams into reality.

A computer with linux and internet connection is provided for their usage.
Volunteers are from FSFTN team, IIT Madras, corporates and local people.
They take care of the center and for the mentor-ship of the students.
All the services are provided for free.
Mr.Udhayan, from TamilNadu Science Forum, initiated the event with his wishes.
4 Local students joined the center and all the volunteers cheered them up with their interest for helping.
Shanu, Welkin, Sibi and other volunteers proceeded with their talks.
This service need to be spread across the country.
