Chairman’s message

For over 50 years, St.John Sangam Trust has been deeply involved in social development and empowerment through education and social welfare activities in Perambalur district in Tamil Nadu, South India. In memory of our Reverend Fr. Hans Roever, and his vision, the trust is engaged in uplifting the economically backward district of Perambalur through affordable education for poor students and through social welfare and development activities for poor families under the auspices of Roever Educational and Social Developmental Institutions.

Roever is now synonymous with quality education and sustainable social empowerment. While our belief in universal education is slowly empowering rural communities throughout many generations, I would like to highlight the immediate needs of the socially and developmentally challenged rural poor, who have no community or government support.

Roever Social Development unit focuses on the young and the old, physically and mentally challenged, women and children, healthy and sick people in and around Perambalur.

Its main goal is to provide for and empower those who are not able to take care of themselves. Our staff provides a whole range of services such as home for orphans, physically and visually challenged, short – stay home for women and girls, old age home, a rehabilitation centre for alcohol and drug addicts and disability rehabilitation centre.

Roever is also deeply committed to the United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDG) in areas such as poverty and hunger eradication, providing universal primary education, promoting gender equality and empowering women, reducing child mortality, improving maternal health, efforts to reduce HIV / AIDS, ensuring environmental sustainability.

Roever Institutions and its dedicated staff continue to expand and provide better services to the marginalized people in society to empower them.

With warm regards
Yours sincerely,

Dr K.Varadharaajen, B.A., B.L.,
Chairman and Managing Trustee, St. John Sangam Trust
