ORGANISATION

Nandri is the Tamil word for ‘Thank You’. The charity was founded by Tony Barron in 1996 to help Dalit children in Tamil Nadu. Since then Nandri has helped to educate over 5000 children. Sadly Tony passed away in 2017.

Nandri in Ireland raises funds, both locally and internationally, to support the Nandri organisation in India who administer, coordinate and monitor all our programmes.

Nandri operates in Ireland mainly with volunteers who provide professional service and experience while keeping overheads to a minimum. Nandri operates in India with management, administrative staff and field workers.
