Annual Report for Childrenshome Agency – 2016-2017 Pudhu Udhayam.


St. Joseph’s Development Trust,


Theni District, Pincode: 625203

Tamilnadu, India


This is the thought provoking voice of mentally retarded children at Pudu Udayam. Pudu Udayam is home and school for mentally retarded children. Our prime aim is to make other people to treat these children with respect and recognition at the same time to make these children to stand on their own legs. What was started as a small concern with 25 children now has grown up with 43 children belonging to different districts of Tamilnadu. Every year we care nearly 60 children for their betterment. This is the 13th year of our concern. It was not a journey of roses but we had to bear with all the thorn of difficulties over the years in caring these under privileged and mentally retarded children. What we all aimed at is to give them the childhood blessings that they lacked.

Our Puthu Udayam special school have successfully completed its 13 years of excellence and stepping into its 14th year today. Hard work and kind words of our managing director made this possible. I’m praying to God for the further development of our school and presenting you the annual report of the academic year 2016-17. There are 14 children sponsored in this orphanage.


To enlighten the life of children who have deficiency in knowledge and skills by helping them to overcome their own difficulties and also provide them with good education & industrial training for the goodness of their future.


This school was started in the year 2003 with just 25 children along with 4 employees. It has raised to 45 children, 3 special teachers, 1 physiotherapist, 1 nurse and 2 wardens in 2014-15 academic year. Our brother I. sebastian leading us to the growth of the school Administration, who is the managing director & founder of St. Joseph’s development trust,  Theni District, Periyakulam Taluk, Kenguvaarpatti, started our special school for the mentally retarded. He is doing this in a skilful way.
