The Thumpamon Diocese of the Malankara Orthodox Church has always been in the fore front of the church for the development of the community at large. The ambitious programme of the church to provide homes for all the homeless by the year 2000 has been successfully implemented in the diocese. The diocese has already completed 540 homes till date. The Mar Philoxenos Memorial Building is another project which houses, The St.Thomas Book Centre, Prakashadhara School of Tailoring and Fashion Technology, Vikas Ladies Tailorings, Radiant Coaching Centre,The Mar Gregorios Santhinilayam Counselling centre and the Prakashadhara School for the Mentally Challenged.


The Almighty God has created us with a lot of Potentials. Unfortunately some are not born with these potentials. Infact we are born with deficiencies. The hidden potentialities of these unfortunate lot could be brought to light. We do understand that this process demands a lot of exercise with concentration. There should be somebody to guide them, somebody to ignite and motivate them and somebody to help them by their munificence. There are sixty five students and ten teachers in the school.


The School is rated as the best in its class in this area. The students have shown remarkable progress by the sustained and committed service of the teachers and therefore there is a heavy rush for admission. We are not in the position to admit more students due to the lack of space.


We have come to the conclusion that the rehabilitation process of these students will be facilitated if they are made to stay with us in the hostel. This has prompted us to find an appropriate place to accommodate the students and impart the training in the rehabilitation programmes. A convenient building with nine rooms, all bath attached, and spacious auditorium, Kitchen, store rooms, parlour and other work area with 50 cents of land has been identified. The plot is near Santhosh Junction Pathanamthitta - Adoor road. The sale agreement has been executed and we have agreed to finalise the sale within three months from the date of agreement. It is now task to raise the necessary finances. We have settled on an amount of Rs.45 lakhs. This would entail registration fees of over Rs.4 lakhs.
