History at a Glance
Sri Ramakrishna Math, Chennai, is involved in various charitable and philanthropic activities for more than 100 years. One of the oldest activities of Math is education of poor girls in the backward areas of North Madras.
Sri Ramakrishna Math Vivekananda Centenary School now has 800 girl students. A recent survey revealed that nearly 65% of the students are socio-economically underprivileged, their parents being mostly laborers working in the Mint area of Chennai. Some of these students hail from poor families without even electricity at home. The school provides the necessary ambiance and facilities to the students which they lack in their homes, including basic facilities like sanitation and pure drinking water facilities. After the school was upgraded to Higher Secondary in 2008, it has been equipped with science laboratories and a computer center. The good education and other facilities provided by the school attracts underprivileged students from even far away localities in Chennai.
Apart from the very nominal annual fee as fixed by the Government of Tamilnadu, we do not collect any other fee or donation from the students. And for some needy students, we exempt even this nominal fee.
