Who We Are

As a part of Isha’s social outreach programs, Isha Vidhya rural schools have been started in villages (under the umbrella of Isha Education, established in 2005) to provide high-quality school education to underprivileged rural children who cannot otherwise access or afford it. In 2012, Isha Vidhya began to carry out critical interventions to improve the quality of education in rural Government schools.
Isha Vidhya currently runs 9 schools in Tamil Nadu & Andhra Pradesh. The schools presently have 7738 children, with 61% students on free education supported by donations under a scholarship program, while the rest pay a nominal fee. Highlights include:
> take education beyond literacy and rudimentary skills
> strive to make children fluent in English and adept in computer skills
> adopt a nurturing approach to education, helping children realize their full potential
> promote education for girls
> increase educational awareness in rural communities while preserving local identities and culture
> equip rural youth with skills to rise above ‘hopeless’ situations of the past
Isha is currently carrying out critical interventions in 121 rural government schools in the districts of Coimbatore, Tirupur, Thiruvallur, Kanchipuram, Villupuram and Salem of Tamil Nadu, benefiting over 28,000 students. In Andhra Pradesh, a project for direct intervention in 3000 Govt. schools in Chittoor Dt. is also benefiting over 100000 children and 10500 Govt. teachers.

Raising Funds For

Educate a Child… Make a Life!

Why Support Isha Vidhya?
Isha Vidhya's English-medium schools provide high-quality school education to rural children who cannot otherwise access or afford it. They adopt a nurturing & holistic approach to education, helping children realize their full potential. Your donation will go 100% towards creating critical infrastructure like classrooms, toilets, school buses, library or labs or providing scholarships to needy children.

Why Donate?
Education is the only ladder that we could provide to raise these underprivileged rural children from poverty. For most of these children, their only good meal of the day is at school. Many learn how to use a toilet and other aspects of personal hygiene only at school. The schools transform almost every aspect of a child's life & parental attitudes to education as well, while preserving and enhancing awareness of their local culture.
