Nirvana School

Nirvana School, situated near the coast in Kotakuppam, Pondicherry, was started by private funding, with the aim of benefiting the fishing community of the surrounding region. Launched in 1985 with only a few students, today it has more than 300 of them. The children come from different communities in surrounding villages and the school provides for a harmonious environment where these students pursue knowledge.

The Rotary Club of Pondicherry (Mid-Town) has been associated with Nirvana since a decade. Among other projects, the Club has provided them with a clean drinking water plant (using Reverse Osmosis Technology), funding for toilet blocks and play equipment. The Club also regularly holds health camps.
