At this difficult time of the novel Corona virus attack, we closed our school past nearly three months and we are involved in one way or the other to mitigate the crisis and reduce its impact on the Education, socio-economic conditions of all of us. Amar Seva Sangam has the twin responsibility of not only protecting the inmates, but also to render effective services to hundreds of Persons with Disabilities (PwD) in this region. As is known, a PwD carries greater risk of the contagion due to his/her low immunity levels and most of them are also dependent on caretakers and other service providers whose help they need, and whose hygiene is also a matter to be adhered to.

In order to circumvent the risks, Amar Seva Sangam introduced strict protocols to be followed for anyone coming into the campus even to the extent of asking such persons to have a bath and change to sanitized clothes and then allowed inside. We have moved in the families of the essential service personnel such as the caretakers inside our campus so that they all feel secured and feel at home while serving us. Social distancing and other measures as instructed by the authorities are strictly followed inside the Campus.

We will resume our school once the situation comes under control.

Child with special needs always has difficulties in attending to classroom education. Most schools in India are not accessible for children with special needs and they face isolation and exclusion from the regular students. This leads to severe functional and psychological impact on the child and affects the personality and prospects when the child grows up. The barrier starts from the elementary to the higher levels of education in India.


Siva Saraswathi Vidyalaya, an integrated school, was started as a primary school in Ayikudy village in Tirunelveli District of Tamilnadu in June 1981 with 5 students in a thatched shed as the first effort of Sangam to give quality education at affordable cost to the physically challenged as well as other rural students. The school grew to 5 teachers and 110 students by 1990 to further progress in our integration efforts of disabled children with others to achieve equal rights for all. In 1995, we started Middle school which was upgraded to High school in 2009 and Higher Secondary in 2015. Here, in Amar Seva Sangam, we provide a complete inclusive solution for education of children with special needs.

 Our inclusive and integrated school is established to include mainstream children with special needs children. We are highly successful in the process of inclusive education and most children who have gone out after finishing their schooling have been highly successful in their lives. This encourages us to cater to more and more such children in our region. Hence, frequent requirements for funding have become necessary.

Our inclusive Siva Saraswati Vidyalaya Higher Secondary School, 12th Standard students have successfully passed out in the exams held in March 2019, recording cent percent success since its up-gradation to 12th Standard since 2017. There is a feeling of triumph in the fact that our intellectually challenged student, Thangasudalai, who joined our Sangamam School for special children ten years ago, has scored 446/600. She was a topper in her 10th Standard exams too. This is a boost to our pursuit of inclusive education. From other students, B.Thirumalai kumar who scored 513/600, S.Praveenkumar who scored 502/600 and V .Ramesh who scored 500/600, have secured first, second and third positions.
