"VIDIVELLI means MORNING STAR" it symbolically represents the undying hope and bright future that the institution is going to provide for the poor downtrodden destitute mentally handicapped children. The celebration of the year of the DISABLED during the year 1981 inspired the good souls of the Parish Council of St. Joseph’s College church to do something concrete and meaningful to the disabled. Since the members of the Parish Council were not competent to do the work they approached the superior General of the congregation of the sisters of St. Anne of Tiruchirappli to initiate some programmed to commemorate the year assuring all possible support. The superior General read by consented to the suggestion since the congregation is already experienced in initiating several programmers for the benefit of the disabled and such programmed are in consonant with the objectives and dedication of the congregation.
