Trinity” stands for the triune God – the Creator, the Redeemer and the Sustainer. God the Father of all, gave a burden and a vision to Ms. Deborah Kim from South Korea when she came to Tamil Nadu in the 1980’s as a student in Stella Maris College, Chennai, about the need for providing quality education in rural India. Miss. Kim, chose Krishnagiri which then belonged to the erstwhile Dharmapuri District. This district was generally considered as one of the most backward districts of Tamil Nadu, as it had poor ratings in all the Human Development Indicators as per the UNDP data for 1990. Given below are some indicators about Dharmapuri district which moved Ms.Kim’s compassionate heart to take some remedial action for its development.
People below poverty line in Urban area 27.7% and in Rural area 26.6%. Dharmapuri figured last among the districts at the bottom level in many parameters such as HDI and GDI values in life expectancy at birth, vulnerability to AIDS, and in Violence against Women.
As education is a key agent of social transformation, Ms.Kim looked at the educational statistics of this district and found that the dropout rate at standard V level was the highest in the state at 21.93% and at 43.55% at middle school level. So she was motivated to start a school with very good infrastructural facilities and well qualified staff.
