Rural Organization for Social Education [ROSE] was started in the year 1994 by a team of first generation of rural educated men and women leaded by Mr.R.Arokiajulian and who have internalized the root causes of suffering of the most deprived sections much as children, adolescent girls, women, women with disabilities and so on. The principle objectives of the organization is educate and organize the deprived sections and enable them to address their own issues effectively and lead a dignified human living. Ever since the initiation, ROSE was driving to address to the felt needs at the most disadvantaged sections of the society.
Due to illiteracy and ignorance the rural disadvantaged were subject to several forms of social exploitation. To liberate these disadvantaged people ROSE was started by the women who had opportunity to complete their education on secondary, Higher Secondary and College levels.
