Update from the field

We take this opportunity to thank you personally for generously supporting our School. May your good deeds be touched by Divinity. We are pleased to update you with the activities, infrastructure developments and the future vision of the school.

I. Infrastructure Development In the year 2009-10, we have built the following for the school at a cost of Rs.60 Lakhs ($140000): • Full-fledged Dining Hall (Capacity: 300 Children). • Kitchen with Steam Cooking facilities. • Teachers’ hostel consisting of 8 rooms with attached bathrooms. • A Computer Lab and Library. • Renovated classrooms (4 numbers).

II. Sadhana Vidyalaya Update As you know, we started Sadhana Vidyalaya in 2005 with 120 children. Now, with your support, it has grown up to Std. 7 with 300 children. We have been providing good education with free food and transportation to the children coming from neighboring villages and towns.

III. Vision for 2010-11 - Residential School At present, children are coming by our school buses from far-off villages spending a lot of time and energy. When they go back home, they are neither able to study nor able to spend time leisurely. Hence, we have decided to provide hostel facilities for the children of Std 4th - 7th. This provides lot of space and time for the children to learn, play and enjoy. We have started to provide hostel facilities for the children. In the coming year, we plan to take up the following activities: • Purchase of two new school buses. • Construction of new school building costing around Rs.64 Lakhs ($145000). • Recruit a larger team of well-qualified teachers to reside on campus.

To meet the above requirements and to create well-planned congenial atmosphere for the Children to grow, magnanimous support from well wishers like you is very much needed. As you have been supporting in previous years, I affectionately request you to continue the support and join us in building a vibrant Rural India.

We have been visiting different parts of India, UK, US and Canada with our two-fold mission of spreading the message of Himalayan Masters and seeking support for the school development. We will be visiting Canada, USA and UK during the period of August-November in 2010.
