Located in a small village of a tribal belt of Gujarat, Vivekanand School of Muni Seva Ashram provides free high school education in an exemplary residential setting. It provides tribal students with a learning environment, nutritious hygienic food, & quality education. With a nurturing & holistic approach to education, the school has transformed lives of more than 3000 children in 25 years and continues to do so. You can sponsor a child (education, stay and food) for less than $1.25 per day.
Most schools in rural India are government run. Though they provide free education, the quality of education is poor. More than 30% of tribal children drop out of high school in Gujarat. Domestic and economic pressures to work and the lack of quality education are major reasons for a high drop-out rate. These children find it difficult to compete with their urban counterparts. Without proper jobs, they continue to live in the vicious cycle of poverty.
Quality education is the only way out of poverty for children in rural areas. Vivekanand Vidhyalaya creates a bright future for these children by providing them with quality infrastructure, computers, interactive learning aids, holistic development through extra-curricular activities and nutritious meals in a natural nurturing environment.
Quality education with English and computer literacy and holistic development will enable these children to realize their full potential in any field they choose. This education is the key to lift them out of the vicious cycle of poverty. Sponsoring a child allows you to witness a miracle firsthand, following the child's growth as he or she is nurtured and exposed to the mainstream world.
