The focal point of the organisation is the Russ Campus, which features a home for children without parents, a dairy farm, a wide variety of tropical plants and a primary school.
We also work with women, alongside running various projects and initiatives in health, education, HIV/AIDS, Education, Socio-Economic development, life-skill vocational training, Ecology and empowerment.

The Russ campus is based 20km outside of the city, in Thondamanchathrapatti (Thon-da-man-chat-ra-patti). The Russ Foundation also undertakes various projects in other districts surrounding the Madurai area.
