Exploring about everything around oneself is the
key to learning.  And learning with curiosity is the
basis of education.

The students are Isha Vidhya are exposed to
various activities based on their curriculum as well
as for extra-curricular interests.  Learning about the
nature, and especially about the living things that are
not human are an important part of the learning process.

As part of this, the Tuticorin (Thoothukudi) school
of Isha Vidhya took their 7th grade students on a
field trip to the bird sanctuary at Koonthakulam in
Tirunelveli district. A lesson on bird’s sanctuary in
the curriculum enabled this trip.

Students observed various kinds of migratory birds
at the sanctuary. They gathered interesting information
on birds from the forest officer. They learnt that
this year has seen very few migratory birds to the
sanctuary. That’s a pointer for them to learn why that
is so.

The students were also curious about many other
things, and hence posed the related questions to the
forest officers. After a tour of the sanctuary, the students
played in a park for a little while and then returned to
their school.

Inspired by the education at Isha Vidhya? You can
consider starting a monthly recurring donation for
as low as USD$10 (INR 680) to be in continuous
engagement with the school and its activities!  The
link to start the donation is:

We thank you for all you have done for Isha Vidhya,
and we look forward for your continuous engagement.

Best Regards.

Noon meal is a critical part of nurturing a child’s
education journey at Isha Vidhya. We have a huge
percentage of students who come from families
where healthy, balanced food is a luxury.

In order to support our school noon meal, we have
introduced organic farming in our schools. Students,
along with teachers, gardeners and other staff members,
take part in maintaining the school garden. It is a delight
to see the plants grow and give fruits. Our kids love to
work with them.

Isha Vidhya Vanavasi recently harvested 13 kg of radish
and 5 kg of lemon for their noon meal kitchen. Please see
the related photographs to get a idea of the effort!

Editor’s note:
Isha Vidhya provides holistic well-rounded education
to the rural children from underprivileged backgrounds.
All Isha Vidhya schools have kitchens that prepare
and provide balanced, healthy noon meal for the students.

If you would like to engage on a ongoing basis with
Isha Vidhya’s effort in educating rural India, please think
about starting a recurring monthly donation for a small
amount. The link to start is:

We thank you for all you have done for Isha Vidhya,
and we look forward for your continued support.

Thanks & Best Regards.

Nandinipriya, an 8th grade student at Apollo Isha Vidhya Niketan,
Aragonda, Chithoor, Andhra Pradesh, India, planted a sapling in
the school ground on the occasion of her birthday.

Apollo Isha Vidhya Niketan has set a tradition of encouraging
students to plant trees on their birthdays. The students not only
plant trees but also take care of them till they pass out of school.

In Nandini’s words, “I would be studying in this school for another
5 years and watching my sapling grow quietly, bearing fruits and
giving shade to many kids, who would love to play in its shade.
This birthday will never fade from my memory.”

As you can see, children studying at Isha Vidhya imbibe the
value of taking care of the nature and the environment so that
the nature in turn can take care of us, which is an ongoing, caring
relationship! We are glad to share that Isha Vidhya students in
every Isha Vidhya school plant trees in their school premises, and
help create awareness among the general public too through events.

We would like you to support Isha Vidhya through your continuous
engagement by starting a recurring monthly donation for a small
amount. We are glad to share that the first instalment of the recurring
donation is matched 100% by Globalgiving! The link to start is:

http://www.globalgiving.org/projects/ishavidhya?show=recurring

If you have any questions or feedback, please feel free to email us
at global.giving@ishavidhya.org. We thank you for all that you have
done for Isha Vidhya and we look forward for your continued
engagement.

Thanks & Best Regards.

Capt. Sanjay Maini,Country Head, IRI Maritime and Corporate
Services Pvt. Ltd took an orientation session on "Adopt A Ship
Program" at Isha Vidhya School, Coimbatore. Fifty six 10th grade
students participated in the event.

Though the session was short, it was an eye opener for the
students, who were not even aware of such possibilities.
Capt. Sanjay introduced MAPS (Maritime Awareness Program
Society), spoke about different types of ships which carry goods
across the world and played a short film on MAPS. Next he spoke
about 'Adopt a ship program' and shared that our Isha Vidhya
Tuticorin school will soon join the program.

In the ‘Adopt a Ship Program’ MAPS will allocate one ship to one
school. A group of students from the school will be connected with
the ship captain and will get to skype about the navigation path
taken by the ship, infrastructure of the ship, goods being carried by
the ship and more. Coimbatore school students also expressed the
desire to join the program.

Capt. Sanjay also donated books on ‘Maritime Awareness Program
Society’ to the school.

We are glad that Isha Vidhya students are exposed to many types
of fields and activities to enrich their education and awareness.  We
thank you for your support in educating the India rural children
studying at Isha Vidhya.  Continuous engagement is one of the best
ways to support this initiative, so we would like to encourage you
to start a recurring monthly donation for a small amount at:

http://www.globalgiving.org/projects/ishavidhya?show=recurring

Again, we thank you for all you have done for Isha Vidhya, and we
look forward for your continued engagement.

Thanks & Best Regards.

A medical camp was organized by Cuddalore Isha Vidhya
school with the support of Mahatma Gandhi Medical College
and Research Institute, Pondicherry. It was for school students,
staff, parents of the students, and well as the locals residing
near the school. A large number of people availed the free
check-up and were delighted at receiving free medicines for
minor issues.

Ten doctors and specialists including those for diabetes,
orthopaedics, paediatrics, gynaecology, cardiology and
dermatology participated in the camp. Apart from the check-up,
Isha Arogya doctor Dr. Pradeepa conducted a health awareness
program for girl children 9th to 12th Std). She held discussions
on health, hygiene, menstruation and related physiological
knowledge which are not being covered as part of the regular
curriculum. Issues that adolescent girls face including physical,
mental, environmental, familial and social dimensions were
also touched upon. She also gave advice about healthy diet
and patiently answered questions raised by the students.

We are deeply grateful to the doctors for giving their precious
time for the camp.
