Thaddeus Dham - India

Meet and Greet Us

The project "Home for The Children" - Home away from Home, is run by the Oblates of Saint Francis de Sales (OSFS), an international religious congregation.

It aims at improving the educational standards of the needy children from low income families from various remote villages of India. This centre will provide residential and educational facilities like computer centre, library, tuition, sports and recreation centre to the less fortunate and needy students.

Background Information

The Idukki District is mainly a mountain area, and it is one of the border Districts of Kerala neighbouring to Tamil Nadu state. As a rule, this district is predominated by low-income fetching families. They live at the subsistence level doing traditional jobs, agriculture and many cannot afford costly educational facilities.

The Centre is being developed in an Agro-friendly place with a beautiful land scape. It is 14 Kilometres away from Thodupuzha, the nearest town. The building is under construction and it has two-floors, which will provide the children an opportunity to live harmoniously and joyfully. They will be assisted by the staff for the improvement of their education and in other areas of creativity and sport.


The primary goal of this centre is to bring more people into the main socio-economic stream, promoting equitable access to resources and opportunities expanding educational opportunities. Better educational status would provide employment and the earning makes them self-reliant. It will also contribute to help them to integrate themselves and their families into the community. All this can be achieved through partnership with needy children and co-operation with generous hearts.

Thaddeus-dham is registered under the Karnataka Samarpana Educational Society, (KSES) which is a Voluntary Charitable Organization formed and registered by the OSFS Fathers in 1994 (Register Number 524/94-95) for Community development in India.
