Arnold Mattschull, Managing Director, Takko Fashion, Germany, recalled his relationship with the knitwear city of Tirupur for the last 30 years, and his travel on scooter in the town those days.
"When I compare Tirupur of yesteryears with the present city, I find that it has tremendously changed," he said. He said that the affection he was having towards the people here had prompted him to do something for them.
In the first phase the school will admit 350 students up to Standard V.
The funds required for running the school would be provided by Takko Holding GmbH.
Unveiling the inaugural stone, Alexander Mattschull of Takko Fashion said the project was planned, decided and executed within a short span of time. "I am sure that the school will increase the potential of ability of the children and will make them successful citizens," he said.
Tirupur Exporters' Association president A. Sakthivel lauded the Takko Fashion for their humanitarian gesture. C. Deenathayalapandian, Managing Trustee of Takko Educational Trust briefed about the project. C. Mallika, principal of the school proposed a vote of thanks.
