“I do not have a mother to educate me, nor do I have relatives to take care of me. It was my relatives who brought me to Besso. I am happy living here and like to study.” Vijaya.
“I am very happy to work in Bethel School. It gives me immense satisfaction to teach these children as they are eager to learn and are disciplined. It is the moral values that are taught in this school which makes them different from others.” —Mrs. Sasikala,
Welcome to BESSO
Bethel Education Social Service Organisation (Besso) is a registered Charitable Trust in India, founded by Sam Ganesh in 1991. The trust’s primary focus is to provide education and shelter for orphaned children in the districts of Dharmapuri and Krishnagiri in Tamil Nadu. Watching an abandoned child eat the leftovers from a banana leaf discarded by a hotel, stirred in Mr Sam the urge to provide succour for such children.
Mr. Sam is a Post Graduate in Social Work. In 1990, he left his hometown Thirunelveli, where he worked as Lecturer in St Xavier;s College, to start a school for underprivileged children in Denkanikottai, near Hosur. He also provided hostel facilities for these children and contributed his personal funds for this cause. He simultaneously started paid tuition centres to financially support the school’s needs. The BESSO home was then started to accommodate orphaned and abandoned children, street children and needy children.
