With the dawn of independence, importance was laid on imparting quality education in the country, as good education alone will help people to rise in various walks of life. The government alone will not be able to develop education exclusively in the public sector and hence has entrusted organizations to shoulder some of its responsibilities.
With the above background, Meenakshi Ammal Trust was founded in the year 1983 as a public charitable and educational trust by Mrs. Meenakshi Ammal, a true philanthropist. The aim of the trust is to provide education to the poor students by starting various educational institutions to spread knowledge, to promote and advance the cause of education and the Indian Culture by running Schools, Engineering, Medical, Dental and Paramedical Institutions, Hospitals, Libraries, Hostels and similar institutions for the benefit of the public.
The trust institutes awards, scholarships, grants and aids to Indian citizens for study and research in the fields of education, Indian culture and fine arts, and makes contribution for the relief of the poor, aged and handicapped. Further Meenakshi Academy of Higher Education and Research Trust was formed on 14th June 2004. Ever since the establishment of the trust, it has grown from a humble beginning to the status of Deemed University – University of Meenakshi Academy of Higher Education and Research with an impressive complex of educational institutions reputed for its quality of teaching imparted to hundreds of talented and deserving students by eminent and dedicated teaching faculty.
Today Meenakshi University is marching towards a golden future with the members of the Trust, functioning with missionary zeal and dedication, striving to establish more educational institutions and hospitals towards the betterment of mankind. In this march towards the glorious academic revolution, establishing Vani Vidyalaya in the year 2002 was a proud moment and landmark in the history of Meenakshi Ammal Trust.
