Academic Schools

There are different types of schools both in urban and rural settings. We run schools and offer quality education to poor people in remote areas in the northern part of Tamilnadu. Due to the political situation of the State and country, we are forced to run schools and pay the teachers ourselves.

Boarding / Hostels

In order to provide an opportunity for children from remote villages to pursue their studies after their elementary education, we run boarding houses where we look after 100 to 200 boys per house. These children, coming from very deserving families, are looked after mostly free of cost.

To help these young people complete their studies, we are looking for donors who would sponsor their stay and study. We are in process of setting up a corpus fund for giving these children a regular scholarship.

Technical Education

There are technical training centers which provide a formal and non-formal training in different trades to young people. Most of our technical schools are well appreciated for their services to the young generation.

We also run entrepreneurship training centers for young people who cannot afford for higher education after their schooling. They are given a six-month-long or one year course in different trades to make them employable. These young people can hardly pay anything pursue their studies. They have to be looked after free of charge.
