Kochi to have the first transgender school in India.

In a notable development Kochi will get the first residential transgender school in the country. Sahaj International School in Kochi will initially accommodate 10 transgenders, who will study under the National Open School system.This was announced by transgender activists Vijayaraja Mallika, Maya Menon and Faisal CK on Thursday. The school will be inaugurated on December 30 by transgender rights activist and artist Kalki Subramaniam. The school will be led by six transgenders working with the TransIndia Foundation. The students have been selected from different sections of the transgender community itself, which includes a disabled person and a migrant. “In the beginning, we have a few sponsors supporting us. We are planning to seek financial help from government after proving its worthiness,” said Vijayaraja Mallika, who mooted this idea. The school will provide education and examination equivalent to Class X and XII, the activists said. “The aim of transgender school is to provide transgenders security, salvation and sustainability,” Vijayaraja Mallika added.
