Welcome to Kalvikkadal Page...

Today, the world witnesses an increasingly serious problems; acts of violence and conflicts. Fanaticism and narrow political activities, poverty and illiteracy, the divide between the rich and the poor; the marginalization of the depressed, distressed, oppressed and the suppressed – the socially and financially excluded people is the order of the day. Over 11 crores children, about 60 % of the girls have no means of access to primary education; at least nine crores adults including majority of women are illiterate. In India, the situation is not far from the same. Over close to half of the Downtrodden are illiterate and only one fourth are enrolled at the primary level.

Education is the basic indicator of growth and progress of a  civil  society;
it determines the cultural and social advancement of a community. The dismal
state of the Downtrodden is, no doubt, due to low literacy rate. Literacy is a human right, a tool of personal empowerment and a means for social and human development. Educational opportunities depend on literacy.

Literacy is at the heart of basic education for all, and essential for eradicating poverty, reducing child mortality, curbing population growth, achieving gender equality and ensuring sustainable development, peace and democracy.

There are good reasons why literacy is at the core of Education for All (EFA). A good quality basic education equips pupils with literacy skills for life and further learning; literate parents are more likely to send their children to school; literate people are better able to access continuing educational opportunities; and literate societies are better geared to meet pressing development challenges.

The birth of Thiruvalluvar Foundation is for the noble cause of participation in the progress and contribution to the educational advancement of the Downtrodden.

Thus the Foundation has been established under the Public Trust Act,1950 and under Societies Registration Act,1860 with the following objectives:

a) To secure unity solidarity and brotherhood among all the communities in India.
b) To organize  and carry out activities in the social, educational, cultural and in such other fields  for the upliftment of the downtrodden people like Adi Dravidar community,
c) To run Educational institutions ,Hostels, Libraries and Coaching classes for the benefits of the downtrodden people  particularly the Adi Dravidar  community,
d) To establish and maintain studentship, give prizes, books and clothes and Grant-in-Aid to the poor students,
e) To arrange and celebrate the birth anniversaries and memorial ceremonies of the great men of India.
