Our Inspiration

The CMI Congregation and all those working behind strongly feel that the range and scope of the facilities and opportunities as prescribed should be enlarged to accommodate PwD from all over the State. In this regard, SRI has organized and conducted several State wide consultations and workshops for organizational Heads working for the PWDs and majority of the participants found half-way through in their mission complying with only the rudiments of the rehabilitation theme with majority of the institutional services sending away the children by secondary level of schooling at the most. It is here that the uniqueness of SRI comes in successfully taking care of the crucial aspects of vocational/ professional rehabilitation by the Management having at its command up to date training facilities and University affiliated Degree Courses open to the PWDs in an adapted environment exclusively created for them.

SSRI has gone to the extent of even starting an Outsourcing Centre for the IT trained physically challenged candidates. It is on the realization of the emerging potential in the IT field that could be precisely appropriated by the PWDs on one hand and on the other SRI being the only place in the State with such a compact rehabilitation program innovatively exists that we focus to improve the institutional facilities to accommodate and train more.

The CMI (Carmelites of Mary Immaculate) Congregation, founded by Saint Kuriakose Elias Chavara in 1831 has the rich tradition and century long experience in the field of education with its numerous schools, colleges, and other professional educational institutions. Santhigiri is the verbalization of this CMI charisma.

Santhigiri is a vision of the Carmelites of Mary Immaculate (CMI Fathers) of Carmel Province, Muvattupuzha, Kerala. Rooted in the rich cultural heritage of our Motherland, drawing inspiration from Saint Kuriakose Elias Chavara, and abiding in the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, this CMI institution concentrates on the overall formation and progressive growth of each person, to take up the challenges of tomorrow and to become contributing members of the society.
