People’s College aims to provide opportunities for continuing education and impart the spirit of lifelong learning for empowering rural youth. It was established in the year 1996 with the co operation of the Association of Danish of Folk High Schools, Denmark. The college integrates the ideas of Danish Folk High Schools and Indian Guru Kula system of education, where the concept of education for life is followed. The education program offered by the college is well integrated with liberal education.
Youth from different parts of Kerala with diverse educational and socio-economic backgrounds studied at MPC over the last 20 years. We are proud to record that this has primarily changed their attitude towards life and built their confidence to function as a responsible member of the community. A large number of youngsters now help their family and community and consider the experience they have gained from MPC as more valuable than what they got from formal education. People’s College focuses on activities based on day-to-day needs to ensure living interaction and practical learning as envisaged by N.F.S. Grundtvig, M.K.Gandhi, and Rabindranath Tagore.
