Providing high quality education for under privileged children in Tamil Nadu, India, for over 24 years.

Our School

Nirvana School has provided nursery, primary and high school education to over 5000 students.

Nirvana Trust was launched by Mrs. Vinodini Samani in 1994 after the sudden death of her husband Mr. Pravin Samani. The school itself was formally opened in December 1995 by Mrs. Samani, fulfilling the vision she shared with her late husband.

The school has a well established curriculum and provides children with the skills and knowledge to move out of poverty and prosper in life and into further education.

Support Nirvana School

The most popular way of making a real difference to the lives of a child and their family is to sponsor a child to cover the costs of their education. However, there are lots of ways you can help in your own way.

Sponsor a child

£90 (25p per day) sponsors an entire years education including all books, equipment and uniform costs for one child. We’ll send yearly updates to you from the child your money sponsors too.

It’s a simple online process and will only take a few minutes.
