Formation of Helping Starz
As I was returning from school I saw many homeless peoples and handicap on the road side without food, shelter who were begging for their hunger. I used to offer a rupee or so. As usual one afternoon I offered some money to old lady at the road corner suddenly she gave back the money which I have offered and said “money cannot kill my hunger” and she cried for food. Those words wounded me a lot and I along with my friends used to offer food for the homeless people regularly. Later, we started the NGO named “HELPING STARZ” on 17-02-2008.
On 19-09-2011 Helping Starz Registered under Tamil Nadu Act 27 of 1975. Currently there are more than 150 volunteers working for the betterment of our society to control poverty. We believe that poverty can be controlled when every child get education, we wish to eradicate poverty.

Education is a very important key by which poverty can be controlled.
One day we received a call from the school where our association was well known by the school management. With the further discussion we came to know about the student who is good in academics but unable to continue his education due to financial background.
When we counsel with the student we got to know that he secured 80% in SSLC exam, due to his family situation he was not able to continue his education. ‘Helping starz’ took an immediate action and sponsored him along with school management to continue his Higher education and secured 82% in HSC board exam.
