About Us

Helping Minds was conceived in the year 1999 by a group of friends from Anna University with the help of some distinguished professors of Anna University, Chennai. Initially, the team started teaching technical subjects to junior students hailing from the rural background and providing basic education to the child workers in the neighbourhood.

On March 2001, the team encountered a junior student of Anna University who was having financial constraints in paying the college fees. There started the compelling desire in all well wishers of the affected student to help him financially to complete his graduation. The intentions got strengthened to concrete acts in due course of time, and the Helping Minds group was born to enable the economically less privileged students to complete their studies.

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 9/10/2006 to 31/3/2011.

The Helping Minds group has grown to 200+ members across the globe. The members participate in the group by contributing financially, helping to identify the needy students, evaluating the background of the students for eligibility to obtain the aid, and also by mentoring the students who are about to complete studies and are looking out for jobs.
