Mangalam At A Glance

Mangalam (Tamil) as a word by itself has a strong prominence in our culture and way of life. It refers to prosperity, well-being, auspiciousness, enlightenment and success in our endeavours. It is in its deep meaning we aspire to selflessly prosper and help prosper the society.Mangalam Educational & Charitable Trust was founded by Mr.C.K. Kandasamy and Mrs.K.Selvamani Kandasamy and registered in the year 2002 as a Societal & Charitable trust to serve primarily in the field of education. It was founded with the sole notion of narrowing the wide gap in Education in our country and to empower the society through a comprehensive and sustainable framework. The trust acts as the ideological, philosophical, financial and administrative guide to all Educational Institutions functioning under its banner.

Mangalam Educational Institutions derived its name from the parent company Mangalam Groups also founded by Mr.C.K.Kandasamy. Mangalam Educational Institutions was built on the notion of providing affordable quality education to diverse segments of the Indian society. In it’s DNA we have instilled the power of perseverance and radical rationality to create knowledge and impart it through various channels.The group of companies employs over 1000 people in many industries ranging form Retail in Silks, Jewellery, Furniture, Stationery, Home utilities to Micro Finance. Located in Anthiyur it has become synonymous with the aspirations of small town people contributing big to the society.

This is how Mangalam has dwelled in the hearts of its customers and associates. Every life we touch we ensure that it is an unforgettable and memorable experience.

At Mangalam we believe that Education is the key to a better & harmonious future. In Education lie all that we are and all that we desire to be. Our perceptions are a combination of thoughts that have influenced us over the years. The current system of Education in India is not on par with some of the developed countries in the world, but simultaneously one must remember that education need not come at a price. Holistic education is just a derivate of passion, clear vision, ideologies, morale, values and belief in being humane. It is what separates the good from the bad whilst striving to reach unattained heights of glory through perseverance and smart thinking. As an organisation, we are the change we seek and we emit hope to those aspiring to be different and contribute for the greater good of the society through education.
