Welcome to Helping Minds


Education is the manifestation of perfection already in man- Swami Vivekananda


The above saying of Swami Vivekananda holds true to the fact that education is the only means to raise one’s intellectual levels, consciously. Swamiji had always reiterated that it is the moral duty of every educated man to help every other illiterate person to bask in the light of “knowledge”, which is possible only through education.

The primary objective of Helping Minds (HM) is to provide quality guidance and support to the poor people for obtaining good education. HM identifies and evaluates the economically challenged but brilliant students and sponsor their education till the completion of their course or degree. HM does a vigilant monitoring of the performance of the sponsored student and provides assistance for improving the skill of the identified students.

The group had been registered on October 2006 by the name "Helping Minds Trust" with the Saidapet registration office, Chennai. Helping Minds Trust has been granted registration u/s 12AA of the income tax act 1961 as "Public Charitable Trust". The trust has been granted deductions in respect of donations under sec 80G of the Income tax Act 1961, in the hands of the donors, from 09/10/2006 to 31/3/2011.

It gave immense happiness when HM got to know in Jan 2005 that Babu, who was sponsored by HM for completing his Engineering degree, got a job offer in one of the leading software companies. More good news followed:

  • In August 2005 that Praveen, who is in the final year of his BE degree, has got a placement offer in an MNC.
  • Nowshath, who was sponsored by HM for completing his Polytechnic studies, has got admission in the Crescent Engineering College, Chennai.
  • In the year 2006-07, our beneficiaries Anand, Easwaramoorthy and Kumaresh have completed their engineering and all of them got good jobs and joined leading software companies.
  • In the year 2006-07, our beneficiary Muthupandi has got placed in Infosys.
  • Our beneficiary Naushadh, for whom we provided help for Polytechnic final year and B.E IInd & IIIrd years, has been placed in ETA-ASCON, Dubai as Engineer Trainee. He is doing his final Mechanical at Crescent Engg College, Chennai. Till VIIth sem he has around 86% aggregate. He will be joining in July 2009, with an initial salary of 3000 dirhams during training.
Let us hope that many more people join this list and HM can enable them to do that.
