The School KFI

The School KFI strives to create and sustain an atmosphere of learning so that children, in the words of J Krishnamurti, may “flower in goodness”.

Knowledge, intellectual capacity and technological prowess alone have never been sufficient to meet life’s challenges. To live, one must remember, is to be related. And to be a complete human being we must continually learn and grow in mindful relatedness – to people, things, ideas, nature and, above all, to one’s inner self. The School KFI offers the space for the exploration of such an education.

Our Educational Work

This is the function of all education. We need to bring about a good society in which all human beings can live happily in peace, without violence, with security. As a student you are responsible for this...You will make the world, either as it is, modified, or as a world in which you and others can live without wars, without brutalities, with generosity and affection.

Relocating to Thazhambur

The School KFI is relocating to Thazhambur (two kilometres from Navalur junction on Old Mahabalipuram Road) in 2018.

Our Appeal

We appeal to all well wishers to participate generously in our efforts towards the continuation of this significant educational work. We have raised sufficient funds for purchase of land.

We need funds for construction of classrooms, laboratories, library, assembly hall, dining hall and other facilities, and development of the new campus with green technologies such as solar panels and grey water treatment.
