Sri Ramacharan Charitable Trust® (SRCT) was started in 1999 with the sole purpose of providing quality education to under privileged children.
In 2004 SRCT with the help of Child Vikas International (CVI), established the first Montessori classroom in the Kindergarten of Chennai Corporation School, V.P.Koil Street, Mylapore. SRCT has since successfully established the Montessori Method in 27 Corporation School units and Balwadis across several centers in Chennai.CVI is continuing to support our Trust through thick and thin as they have been doing for the past 15 years since inception of the Trust.
We can proudly say that this is the first time anyone, anywhere in the world has taken the Montessori Method to under privileged children proving wrong the popular misconception that Montessori Method is suitable only for the elite. After observing the significant changes that the Montessori Method had on the children in terms of giving them high self-esteem and self confidence, and imbibing values such as cleanliness, hygiene and compassion, the Corporation of Chennai on its own decided to adopt the Method in all its schools at the kindergarten level in the year 2007. We truly believe that this is indeed a landmark achievement of the continuous and committed efforts of our Trust.
