Who We Are

Isha Vidhya, an education outreach initiative of Isha Foundation (under a separate trust, Isha Education), provides high quality school education to rural children who cannot otherwise access or afford it. Isha Vidhya’s English-medium schools open the door for rural children to successfully pursue higher studies and gainful employment. The holistic, activity-based approach nurtures children’s development beyond just academics, ensuring that students realize their full potential and learn in a joyful environment.
Currently running 9 rural schools (8 in TN in districts of Coimbatore, Erode, Salem, Cuddalore, Villupuram, Tuticorin, Nagercoil & Dharmapuri, 1 in AP in Chittoor Dt.), creating a bright future for 7,115 children.
 Many of the students are first-generation school-goers  About 61% of the students are supported by full tuition scholarships. The rest pay a subsidised fee  Actively promote education of female children (46% are girls) by visiting villages & counselling parents of girls to send their children to our schools and by providing proper toilet facilities for girls.  Transforming parental attitudes to education & increasing educational awareness in rural communities while striving to preserve village identities and culture Highlights  Infrastructure by way of clean and spacious classrooms  Science, maths and computer labs, digital classroom, library, playground and play equipment  Extensive audio, video and computer material augment English-medium education  Education beyond literacy and rudimentary skills by following a holistic approach o Attention to sports, arts & crafts, environmental awareness, health and yoga  Balanced mid-day meals containing proteins and salt fortified with 7 micro-nutrients o For most children, this is the only wholesome meal of the day.  Most students learn even basic hygiene only in the school  Student teacher ratio is 18:1, with special care for slow learners

With experience in setting up and running schools in rural areas, Isha Vidhya is only too aware of the challenges faced by government schools. These include a high student-teacher ratio, unmotivated teachers, lack of basic facilities, gaps in teacher recruitment & training and a high student drop-out rate. Isha is, therefore, currently carrying out critical interventions in 56 rural government schools in the districts of Coimbatore, Dharmapuri, Kanchipuram, Villupuram and Salem of Tamil Nadu, benefiting over 34,000 students. In Andhra Pradesh, a project for direct intervention in 460 Govt. schools in Kuppam, Chittoor Dt. is also benefiting over 38000 children and 2000 Govt. teachers. Initiatives include:  Extensive Teacher Training using Isha Vidhya methods.  Special assistance to slow learners, who constitute 25% of class, through critical Remedial interventions  Improving children’s English language skills through special methodologies  Supporting holistic development through sports, yoga, environmental education, health awareness  Ongoing monitoring & feedback support to teachers.
