In a world grappling with a severe climate crisis, KIS CEH is our endeavor to bring practical field-based environmental education and outreach to Kodai and provide KIS students with opportunities to both learn and potentially make a big difference in this ecologically sensitive region and beyond. The three main areas of intervention are education, outreach, and research. The CEH vision statement states: The Center strives to empower individuals and communities to become agents of change for a sustainable world.
Some of the important programs run by the center include waste management, regenerative agriculture, climate change and biodiversity.

During the pandemic years, Kodaikanal was severely impacted by the COVID 19 related lockdowns. The school responded in many ways, including food distribution efforts over the first crucial months of the lockdown, the purchase of equipment and supplies for Van Allen hospital and the local government hospital, large-scale educational projects for local school children, job training programs for young adults and several other short, and long-term initiatives. We are proud of the fact that KIS students were instrumental in our efforts, organizing campaigns for local causes.
Each year KIS students initiate and run various community-based projects as part of their SEED and CAS projects.
Your support under this head will be crucial in sustaining our social service efforts in the community.
