Welcome to The Tribal School , Kombuthooki A 21st Century Human Empowerment programme
The 21st Century Human Empowerment programme is a cherished Community Project of the Montfort Brothers of Yercaud Province.
The Community School at Kombuthooki (a small village in the interior forest region, situated 20 km away from Yercaud,South India) is committed to providing comprehensive and holistic education to tribal children. Empowering the illiterate and poverty stricken people of this region, so as to include them into the mainstream of society remains the primary focus of this project and the vision of its founder Bro.George Kalangod.
We envision the upliftment of the less fortunate and marginalized children hailing from the 22 tribal villages and hamlets around Kombuthoooki, without any cultural or gender bias. We aim to liberate and empower these “first generation learners” from their ignorance and socio-economic conditions through free and Holistic education along with curricular and co-curricular activities and “life-oriented skills”.
Inspired by the Mission of God’s beloved Son, who came to uplift the poor and the marginalized, we walk the same path in empowering the less fortunate children, the youth and women struggling for justice and a dignified living.
We strive hard to achieve excellence and all round development to bring about change and transformation among the tribals deprived of life’s opportunities, by providing comprehensive value based education, health care and life skills in a loving and caring environment. Day after day, we listen to the call of our Master to serve all men and women, irrespective of their caste, creed and gender after the model and example of Mother Teresa, the angel of Mercy.
