The Migros KIDS-School is a full-time school in Tirupur, a city in the southern province/state of Tamil Nadu in India, which emerged to become a leading center of the global textile and apparel knit industry. Besides the full-day care and meals for around 1400 children there is an associated center for medical care for the students as well as citizens of the surrounding villages. The Migros KIDS-School was jointly founded in 1999 by Migros, the biggest retailer of Switzerland, and the German foundation K.I.D.S. e.V. Migros raised all necessary funds for the site-development, the building, the furniture and facilities as well as the the school buses. The Migros suppliers were deeply involved into the project from the beginning in order to achieve financial independence for the school and to create a „help to help yourself“ situation. The project is mainly funded by the regular knitwear suppliers of Migros in the region.
