- English school for the Tribal and village kids of Mudumalai and also for the villagers of Masinagudi ( Good Shepherd Matriculation School)
The People group in this tribal belt belong to the Tribes of “Kurumba” “Irula” and “Paniya” and the native ethnic groups speaking Malayalam, Kannada and Tamil. Schooling and medical facilities are also remote possibilities for these people. Now Good Shepherd Matriculation School is a lasting solution for this problem
After their 10 years of Medical Practice in various private and Government Hospitals in Kerala, Dr.Babu Narendran and his wife, moved with compassion for the suffering people in the villages, especially in the trbal pockets resigned their job and moved to the village of Masinagudi
Medical Facilities Dr.Sally and Dr.Babu are the only two doctors serving this population round the clock since 1987. Even though there is a government run medical center is there in Masinagudi, it is quite undependable for these villagers, who are shut out from the outside world after 8 O’clock in the night. (There is no public transportation after 8.00PM)
