Gandhigram is the product of Mahatma’s encouragement to aspire for Swaraj. Dr. T.S. Soundram and Dr. G. Ramachandran started Gandhigram to help the rural poor for their growth and development in the fields of health, education, economic development and social welfare. It was this vision which manifested into the various institutions.
