Story

APJ Abdul Kalam Tribal Residential School is to provide quality education exclusively for tribal children, mainly from kurumba community of Attappady, in complete residential mode with superior infrastructure and resource pool. Among the three major tribal sects in Attappadi, i.e Irula, Kurumba and Muduga, the primitive most tribal group are Kurumbas who inhibit inner forest areas with deprived living standards. The school is situated at Attappady, the largest tribal block of Kerala in around 4.59 acres of its ethnic locale. It will contribute to the sustainable development of tribal community retaining their cultural values and heritage. The mission is to enable the tribal children to have an insightful and confident future overcoming the various inhibitions they confront while interacting with the mainstream society.
Education of Scheduled Tribes (ST) children is important not just due to a Constitutional obligation to equality of its citizen or special entitlements to ST, but because it is a crucial input in the nation‘s strategy of total development of tribal communities. However, despite the government’s active interventions for uplift, tribal people have lagged behind in education which in turn resulted a deteriorating and falling population. Kurumba community is the primitive sect of Attappady who have less contact with outer world and poor literacy rate. The school is set to provide quality and free education chiefly to their children in residential mode for all round development.
since we are facing the global pandemic, its been very difficult to maintain the cost of running the school. it cost us 6000 rupees for each student and we have 120 students so each month we have to bear a cost 6 lakh rupees. As the admission for this year is started we are in urgent need for funds to run our school for these tribal students. please help in this quest for providing quality education to the tribal students.
