Dr. K. N. V. Shastri founded this institution way back in 1972. A visionary and a distinguished educationist, he brought together all the resources he could muster to make a humble beginning with just 4 students in the first year.

He was fortunate in finding the right people to build the foundation. Joining him with a vision of empowering women were Dr. M. N. Mahadevan and Sri T. S. Rajam.

For him, the core motivation was to support the girl child. The girl has a special place in our society. She is going to assume several roles in the future: as a professional, a wife, a mother, … And unless she has the right orientation and is equipped with the right values, she cannot discharge responsibilities in a socially useful way. We are delivering his vision with a missionary zeal.
