“Dream Big, Think Differently, Focus Intensely, Work Independently.” These words unravel the success story behind the Velammal Educational Trust from the year 1986 to 2017 and span the golden years ahead....
Smt.Velammal, born in a small hamlet Ladanendal, near Madurai, ardently desired for something more than just a virtuous life of comfort for her children.
