Meenakshi Ammal Trust
With the dawn of independence, importance has been laid on imparting quality education in the country, as good education alone will help people to rise up in various walks of life. The government alone will not be able to develop education exclusively in the public sector and hence has entrusted organizations to shoulder some of its responsibilities.
With the above background, Meenakshi Ammal Trust was founded in the year 1983 as a public charitable and educational trust by Mrs. Meenakshi Ammal, a true philanthropist.The aim of the trust is to provide education to the poor students by starting various educational institutions to spread knowledge, to promote and advance the cause of education and the Indian Culture by running Schools, Engineering, Medical, Dental and Paramedical Institutions, Hospitals, Libraries, Hostels and similar institutions for the benefit of the public.
