Summary

The VIDYA School Bangalore in Chikkaballapur is VIDYA Bangalore's newest and most ambitious program, and it's VIDYA's first project set in a rural area. With incalculable help from Padma Shri Anita Reddy and DRIK, we are launching in June with our first batch. The school takes inspiration from our award-winning VIDYA school in Gurugram, and aims to become a premier institution for the empowerment and education of less privileged communities in the area.

Challenge

Underprivileged communities exist in a vicious cycle of poverty, unemployment, and lack of education. Even with the school attendance rates now being significantly higher across the country, there is an extremely high number of dropouts, students and adults who are unable to pursue further education and lack the necessary set of skills to find employment. Unless we break the cycle of 'first generation' learners we cannot achieve social development.

Solution

This project is set on the outskirts of Bangalore, and is inspired by our Gurugram school that has transformed the lives of 1000+ students and their families. The school believes in imparting education to less privileged children, with the high-quality that matches elite schools. We address literacy as multi-faceted- encompassing academics, vocations, mental and physical health, life skills, awareness, and values.

Long-Term Impact

Our work enables individuals to dream big, achieve their goals and create the social change they want to see in the world. Empowered, values-driven individuals confidently better themselves and help others do the same. The love for learning, playfulness, achievement, compassion, and independence starts at a young age. Communities become safer and more progressive with individuals going back to lead change, leading to a more prosperous country.
