The journey of IIDA Skills Academy at Thiru. Vi. Ka Nagar began in 2010 by Mr. Jochen and Mrs. Johshy Tewes, founders of IIDA. with a vision of “Value based holistic training and rehabilitation of the unemployed and underprivileged youth.” Originally the College began in 2002 at Kellys and later moved to Thiru-Vi-Ka Nagar and renamed as IIDA Skills Academy TVK Nagar. The Institution’s goal is to give better access to the youth in North Chennai.
The Institution aims to develop the knowledge of young girls and boys, increase their understanding about life and build them up. All our students are coming from an underprivileged background; many of them suffer from broken homes and poor income of the parents. Every student, while attaining knowledge and intellectual vigour, is encouraged to shine and excel as a model for others. Our students really enjoy our systematic syllabus – technical and vocational Courses, they take part with full involvement both in the theory and practical classes.
When joining, many of the students do not know the purpose of life and value of education. But during the time they spend with us, many realize their goal in life and understand how education is actually uplifting them. After the completion of their courses, the students get placed in good jobs and we guide them further how to maintain good (working) relationships as well as develop their personal lives.
