The Little Lambs School is located in Vijayalakshmi Nagar, Surapet road, Puthagaram; a village 3 km north of Chennai city limits. It is a quiet area, away from the bustling city with its heavy traffic. Water buffaloes graze around the school and especially like the area during monsoon time, when they can take a swim in the water surrounding the school! The school yard has been raised to avoid flooding, so the school can still function on its “island” during rainy weather. Most of the children come from the Perambur area, 5 km from the school. They come to school by the school bus. Most teachers and volunteers also travel by the bus. Perambur is a very congested area, with not much space for children to play, so Little Lambs offer these children a chance to get away from the chaos in the city.
