Challenge

Parents being landless laborers and due to rural indebtedness, children are deprived of education. Further poverty leads to starvation and mal-nourishment. Parents due to lack of awareness on the importance of education, involve the children in child labor. Sevalaya has been running the free school for the poor, destitute, underprivileged children for the past 26 years, using private funds received from philanthrophic individuals. 40 villages in the neighborhood are benefitted by Sevalaya School

Solution

By Free education, dormitary arrangement and free food arrangements, Sevalaya attempts to bring the children out of vicious cycle of poverty. As they need not shell out any money, parents do not stand any more in the way of children from pursuing education. Apart from education Sevalaya School also encourages the children in Sports, art and craft and other extra curricular activities. The BGV syllabus followed for Moral Education is an award winning program, which provides wholesome development

Long-Term Impact

Children passing out of our school excel not only in academics but also in life skills as we teach value education as part of our curriculum. Management and Teaching team also live and demonstrate the values that are taught. Hence, Sevalaya brings out responsible citizens ready to face the challenges in real life in a developing society. Many students get into professions and give back to society what they have learnt in Sevalaya. Child labor is completely eradicated in the community.
