2012 Graduating Class

About Us

The Community College program at Kodai offers intensive ten month live-in courses for young women who are low caste, Dalit, Tribal and repatriated Tamils from Sri Lanka and who live in poor villages of the remote Palni Hills in Tamil Nadu.


The courses aim to help these women free themselves from their plight through a program of literacy, development, social awareness, skills training and confidence building. This program, after 23 years of non-formal education, has been extended to become a community college offering vocational diplomas recognised throughout India.
