Free Residential Learning Centre - For 1000 children – Only for Girls.

Curriculum - Blend of Alternative Learning and Vedic Education.
Preparation for Board Exams - When the child is ready and has attained a level of academic proficiency, we start preparing for the Board Exam.
Defence - Training to students for Defence.
Regular Counselling - A group of Counsellors and Special Educators assigned permanently.
Therefore in designing our curriculum we are also consulting with various educationists to have a curriculum with a perfect blend of Vedic & alternative education.
Focal Point is the ChildChild Centric Learning -
Every child is special and their ability to deal with any learning is different from one another. Freedom to learn. Play and learn. Recognise and respect each child's ability. Freedom to explore themselves. Everyone has the capability to be good at something and not good at something. Accept it!
conducive to Learning
Learning should be natural, we create an environment which encourages children to learn rather than push things and only make rules, regulations and guidelines. The zeal to learn should never stop. Their curiosity and knowledge gaining hunger should be intact at all times for natural learning to happen.
The mental health of all beings is of prime importance. Only if the child is emotionally stable and secure as well as happy beings, the learning and growth will happen naturally. They will excel automatically.

The children should be connected to their roots. They should feel responsible towards their families back home as well as their social surroundings.
From each family, only 1 child will be admitted to the center so as to impact more families.
We will build a Model Plan of each village from where the children belong, to work on the requirements of the village.
Every year, the children will be spending a couple of months at their village to execute a plan of action designed for their village. They will be accompanied by teachers and a support staff team in order to do this and make it fruitful. This will be an essential part of their curriculum as well. The learning center can act as a source to all these villages and ultimately impact the educational centers of these villages too.
In this way, they can contribute towards village community development.

With happy minds, physically fit, balanced emotional quotient, and spiritually enhanced human beings.
Teach Empathy and encourage Respect for others - Accept each other with love. Our responsibility is not only to create self-reliant and self-independant successful individuals but good, happy, content, peace loving, responsible, mentally stable and spiritually evolved human beings.
