In 2016 the charities acquired an 8 acre plot of land 3 miles from the town. This is being developed into a new campus for the Vidyodaya School and its connected Foundation Course and a residence for Ashwini's medical and nursing students. It is here also that PLENTI House has been built by wonderful Bangalore architect, Ajith Andagere, and his team.
Using traditional materials, the guest house is set at the top of the estate, looking over tea plantations and fine trees towards the Ooty hills. The design is comfortable, without being flashy, with six good sized en suite double bedrooms, with their own private verandahs, spacious common areas accommodating one large dining table for all the guests, a Pavilion for activities such as Yoga or Ayurvedic treatment and a main verandah making use of the spectacular views.
During the winter months, mid-November into April, like-minded PLENTI Project volunteers stay for a minimum of one month (from either 1st or 15th of the month) to enjoy the beauty of the place while developing a connection with the people and the social issues of the communities.
