Who We Are

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. Isha Vidhya’s English-medium schools open the door for rural children to prepare for higher studies and to join the workforce. The holistic, activity-based approach of Isha Vidhya’s educational system, nurtures children’s development beyond just academics, ensuring that students realize their full potential and learn in a joyful manner.

• Today there are 9 rural schools in the districts of Coimbatore, Erode, Nagercoil, Tuticorin, Villupuram, Salem, Cuddalore and Dharmapuri in Tamil Nadu and in the Chittoor district in Andhra Pradesh. The first 7 schools currently have classes from Kindergarten to Class 12, while the Chittoor School, which was started in June 2012, and Dharmapuri, which started in 2013-14, have classes from LKG to Class 10.
• The schools have clean and spacious classrooms, adequate toilet facilities, science, maths and computer labs, digital classrooms, a library, a playground and play equipment. No compromise is made in the quality of the facilities provided to the students.
• The schools have 8,132 students. Many are first-generation learners from underprivileged families. About 64% of these children are supported on full scholarships while the remaining pay a nominal fee. The scholarships cover tuition, notebooks, and textbooks.

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.
