Underground water storage for the Special School of disabled Children, Arulchandru, Tamil Nadu, India

The Arulchandru Special School for mentally disabled children  is located at Paramakudi in the district of Ramnad. Paramakudi is around 90 km east of  Madurai airport in Tamil Nadu, India. At present the school has an enrolment of 67 children between the age group 5 to 17 yers,  with 7 teaching staff and 2 care providers. The children are brought from home by school van each morning. They are provided with lunch and refreshment at the school. They are taken home in the evening

The school is run by ANISE society a unit of the Brothers of the Sacred Heart which has  service units throughout India. It cares for and provides education to children with mental disabilities. The Brothers of the Sacred Heart  have established close contacts with most of the rural villages through cultural and social institutions in the region. In  2005 needy and deserving children were identified through contacts in the villages.
The school was established there because of the presence of many children with  mental disabilities and the  availability of space to run the school in that vicinity. 
The overall vision of the project is to empower disabled children to acquire social status through human resource development and capacity building measures.

The water storage  has a capacity of 23.000 litres and has started to provide safe driking water for the children.
