This Trust is being run by a group of young adults who CARE.

No part of any donation received is used for administration costs. All administrative expenses are borne by committee members. Every penny that is donated reaches the children directly


Pragadeesh is the son of a fisherman.... and his dreams when he was 5 years old was to become a Doctor! He joined Gurukulam when he was 4 years old. Today - Pragadeesh is doing his 10th standard at Gurukulam. His dreams have changed over the years, but he is well on his way to becoming whatever he wants to be. And it is thanks to each and every one who supports Gurukulam, that children like Pragadeesh can dream of a future and have a chance to make it a reality. Read more about it at


New Volunteer Registration

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at the Gurukulam School that provides FREE education to the underprivileged children of Panayur village, Chennai, India. Because of the support of people like you and through the power of EDUCATION, we are confident that these children will earn a decent living for themselves and be able to break the “poverty-labour manual” cycle.

We request all prospective volunteers to register on this page. Please let us know the number of days that you would like to volunteer with us, the activities that interest you, and the grades/classes that you would be interested to work with. Once you complete your registration one of our committee members will respond to you at the earliest to assist you further.

Gurukulam School has grades from LKG (Lower Kindergarten) to the VI at present. Subjects taught are English, Tamil, Hindi, Mathematics and Science. All subjects are taught in English even though the children’s native language is Tamil. Children from grade IV to grade VI will be able to understand and converse fluently in English. Obviously, higher the grade, the better is their spoken English.
