Why we need your help

The Timothy Pruss Memorial School (TPMS) is situated near Inungur in Tamil Nadu, South India.    It is named after the beloved son of Mary and Tony Pruss who died aged 18 in 2005, shortly after leaving Chigwell School.    TPMS is largely funded by the Bede Griffiths Charitable Trust.    It provides a unique opportunity for the children of poor families in the area to learn in both Tamil and English, the latter giving them the opportunity to get better jobs and enabling them and their families to break out of poverty.

At this incredibly challenging and difficult time during the pandemic, I have been thinking more than ever about the teachers, staff and pupils at this wonderful school. I pray for their well-being and health and hope to see them all again very soon.
