Facilities to empower students from diverse
Believing that every child is special and every one of them has the right to learn, we try our best to
ensure that each is equipped with the right attention and knowledge in our regime.
In Gujarati & Hindi
Originally conceived as Thalir Thiran Thittam, a programme for students in Tamil Nadu, it took a new avatar Tim Tim Tara a few years ago for the north Indian states. In this academic year, about 1000 schools have implemented TTT. Following this, the lessons and video have been introduced in Hindi and Gujarati.
For primary schools
After the successful implementation in high schools and encouraged by the good reception by the students, teachers, school administrators, educationists and parents, we were signified to develop 100 video lessons for primary school students in the age group 6–10 as well.
At Students’ Home
Pursuing our mission that no child should go without the basic knowledge of life skills, we extended the lessons to the homes as well. Sevalayam is a students’ home in Shenoy Nagar, Madurai, where 120 students from the rural areas live and study in high and higher secondary schools. Life skill programs have been conducted every Saturday since February 2015.
For the differently abled
Thalir Thiran Thittam was introduced in the Indian Association of Blind Higher Secondary School in Sundararajanpatty in the outskirts of Madurai on January 29, 2014, and the programme was effectively implemented. As a continuation of this effort, TTT was introduced in YMCA KAMAK Higher Secondary School for Deaf and Dumb, Madurai, on August 8, 2014.
In Children’s Parliament
Life skills education through TTT is being offered to members of the Children’s Parliament as a part of CSR initiatives of the TVS Groups in Madurai which is undertaken through Arogya Welfare Trust for students from Vellarippatti, Narasingampatti, Chitttampatti, Kathappatti, Perumalpatti, Muthuppatti, Othakkadai and Pudukkulam in the Melur taluk near Madurai.

In Transformation Centres
To impart Life Skills Education to youth beyond the educational campus, TTT was introduced through Transformation Centers in NGOs in Madurai – Sudar Foundation for college students and Madurai Seed for school children – on 2012.
Although Thalir Thiran Thittam was originally created for school students, experts have often pointed out the relevance of TTT content for college students. It was introduced in Thiagarajar College, Madurai on March 19, 2018.
In Residential Schools
Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan of Gujarat has permitted TTT to be implemented in 43 residential schools of Kasturba Gandhi Balika Vidhyala for Girls since 2017 August.
