Salutations and Greetings . . .

Being the Managing Trustee and Correspondent of Sengamala Thayaar Educational Trust Women’s College, Sundarakkottai, Mannargudi Taluk, Thiruvarur District, TamilNadu, I wish to share some thing with you. Two decades ago a strong feeling was gaining momentum to have an exclusive women’s college for this predominantly agriculture area, especially to feed the daughters of the farmers. To fulfill the desire of this area my beloved mother Smt. Krishnaveni Vivekanandam initiated a Trust and appointed me as the Managing Trustee along with several good hearts as the board of trustees. In the year 1994 we started this institution with her blessings.

Being the only daughter of a farmer, hailing from a remote village our founder has a strong desire to empower the rural women. We deviced our vision “Empowering Women Empowering the Nation” by imparting the higher education to the rural girls by providing a first class infrastructure, instruments, facilities and a very strong teaching method to fulfill the needs.I feel proud to say we are second to none in keeping the standards. An excellent self sustained educational environment is being provided here, which is encouragingly supporting our students to excel in their academics and researches.

So far we have produced 20,245 graduates among them 1,967 are university rank holders.We offer research level studies in Biochemistry, Microbiology, Computer Science and in Commerce. Today our students are spreading throughout the world.

We got “A” grade from the NAAC, with the hard work of our staff members and dedicated students. At this juncture I wish to congratulate all stakeholders for their overwhelming support. I assure a world class service in the coming years to excel our Mannargudi in the sky of higher education.

I convey my gratitude to Lord Bala Vidya Ganapathi for positioning me as Vice Principal (Academic) to render my service to this authentic institution.

Women’s empowerment is the process by which women gain power and control over their own lives and acquire the ability to make strategic choices.Empowerment includes the action of raising the status of women through education, raising awareness, literacy and training. It is all about equipping and allowing women to make life- determining decisions through the different problems in society.It is a necessity for the very development of a society,since it enhances both the quality and the quantity of human resources available for development.Having the motto, “Empowering Women, Empowering the Nation”, our institution strongly engages itself for providing education to girl students hailing from rural areas.

Education is a milestone for women empowerment by which they can enable and responds to the challenges to confront their traditional roles and change their life.Hence we can’t neglect the importance of education. Thus educating women means providing her with weapon to live up with customary part, fight up with challenges and live a beautiful life.Thus, women education opens up the new horizons, broadens her thinking, develops new ideas and hopes, enhances knowledge and skills, provides the courage to meet the challenges of life and give freedom of expressions.Investing in girls’ and women’s education can transform, and even save, lives- the lives of girls and women, and the lives of their families and communities. It is one of the most effective ways to achieve positive, sustainable change in the world, for everyone.
