Education 2

Our Education Programmes are built on the Vision and Values of the Founders of the Shanthimalai Trust, Dr. Hugo and Anne Maier: We strive to transform the lives of under-privileged children by providing a holistic development space beyond academic performance, nurturing their well-being at a physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual level. The key to development is “Help for Self-Help”.

WELL-BEING: Physical, mental, and social well-being as well as life-skills are as important as academic performance to live a happy life.


COMMUNICATION AND SELF-DEVELOPMENT: To know ourselves as children of Arunachala, develop self-esteem and self-expression in all aspects of life.


COMPUTER SKILLS: Over and above theory, we train children in relevant practical computer skills they will need later in work-life.
