Vivekananda Book Bank“Educate our people so that they may be able to solve their own problems…” – Swami Vivekananda
Swami Vivekananda strongly believed that the underprivileged must be raised through education and equipped to live and work in society with dignity and confidence.
Committed to Swami Vivekananda’s charter for social welfare and development, Sri Ramakrishna Math, Chennai, has started Vivekananda Book Bank in 1991 as a part of their services in the field of education to help the economically marginalized meritorious students of Engineering & Computer Applications by lending textbooks. Students can borrow textbooks of their prescribed syllabus from the Book Bank and retain the books until their examinations (annual / semester). The Vivekananda Book Bank is one of the very few not for profit ventures in Chennai.
