A project of love in Tamil Nadu - The Jared Scott Miller Library

GPM is honored to be involved and assist in the creation of the The Jared Scott Miller Library - a project of love in living memory of Jared Scott Miller, while providing a central educational resource for children of all ages and their families living in the villages of Tamil Nadu, India.

When Cheryl and Paul Miller of Cleveland, Ohio were considering ways to honor their son Jared, who tragically died in 2013 at age of 34, they knew that the project must involve helping the children in Tamil
Nadu, India. Jared loved the Tamil language, he loved books, and he loved working with children of all ages. Jared’s parents, with the help of Gabriel Project Mumbai and the special people at the New Colors Children Educational Center in Tamil Nadu, brought Jared’s interests and loves together in establishing a new children’s library. The Jared Scott Miller Library, stocked with Tamil and English language books was opened in August 2014 on the New Color campus in Edayanchavady (population 5,000+), a local village in Auroville, Tamil Nadu, India. Currently, this is a very small intermediate library with major plans to build a permanent structure in the very near future so more children in the surrounding villages will be able to enjoy the library. People from all walks of life are helping the Millers fulfill their dream to build this library. Members of their synagogue, family and friends, Tamil expats living in Ohio and even strangers, all  are contributing to this wonderful educational project. The Jared Scott Miller Library, when built, will be a dominant and vibrant educational center for thousands of children - a wonderful tribute to Jared.
