What is Elina?

  • Elina is a concept of inclusion that was born and incubated in HLC International, an Ashoka Changemaker School in Chennai.
  • It has been nurtured by the team of teachers at HLC with the support of management since 2010.
  • Through this journey, we have been able to identify, work with and eventually conclude through research on a few practices that enable an equitable learning space.
  • Our best practices are being recognised in various forums in Chennai and other places including the Delhi Government and Bhutan Government.

    We approached Elina team seeking services for my son. Ramalakshmi mam and Sumithra mam coordinated well and heard our concerns patiently. After a through assessment, we got the report and clarity about therapies for our kid. The best part is they respond to all our queries whether it's small or big. I have recommended Elina to most the parents like us. Thanks to Elina team!

    Elina is a wonderful effort. Elina team headed by Ms.Rama and Ms.Sumitra is a very sincere and effective program.If absorbed in schools it will be very useful for the students with learning difficulties. Elina is very much needed in all schools.

    We have an active child and a regular CBSE school was not suiting him. So when we decided to change the school, HLC was an obvious choice. We liked the school for its way of teaching and catering to each child's individual needs. Unfortunately our son did not get admission as there were no drop outs in that year. However we got to know about their Elina program for outsiders. The Elina program helped us to identify the right kind of help for him.Thanks to Rama and Sumithra for your guidance and support through the program.
