Vijayaraja Mallika(who mooted this idea) said that 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,”

Kerala Catholic Bible Society (KCBS) pro-life sector and National Open School have extended their support for the initiative. There will be a pool of teachers and social workers who have volunteered to take classes for the students.
