What we do


“True education consists in the cultivation of the heart." Baba

We provide access to good and quality education to children in rural and impoverished communities of Karnataka. Our schools also give these students the benefits of a top-quality education system without having to migrate to a city. We provide a transformative education that goes beyond an informative education.
Students in our schools are exposed to human values in every aspect of the campus culture. From morning exercises and prayers to the classrooms and cultural activities, our schools integrate an ethos of academic and human excellence.
Lessons extend into the corridors of the hostel, dining halls and other shared spaces where students learn to cooperate, have mutual respect and be self-reliant. The primary objective of education reflects the essence of Baba’s vision for it – molding students who are valuable assets not only to the society they are part of but the nation at large.

Student Life

Our students aren’t defined just by their report cards. We encourage them to explore their talents and likes beyond academics. The entire curriculum is scheduled allow and encourage multiple opportunities to delve into arts, sports and culture. The day’s roster is designed with ample time to learn, play, sing and dance. Building a strong mind, a strong body and a strong character takes equal importance at our campuses. Students pursue their growth and achievements, in the spirit of cooperation, care and compassion instead of competition. From a younger age students learn how to put the happiness and well being of others first and to be resourceful to their communities.
Sports & Recreation: Each campus, set in the very lap of nature, on an average acreage of 50 acres, provides a conducive environment for a child’s all-round growth. From facilities for basketball, football, volleyball to many indoor games, our campuses are designed to to provide an opportunity for a balanced campus life. Students learn teamwork while developing a liking and an appreciation to physical fitness from a young age.
Music, Cultural and Human Values Education: We believe that India’s many art forms seamlessly integrate the secular with the spiritual. To help foster character development and spiritual transformation, we offer our students training in classical dance such as Bharatanatayam, carnatic music, as well as Indian and Western instruments. We also teach them vedas, slokas and yoga. To inculcate in them the essence of Indian culture, stories from Ramayana and Mahabharata and other such epics from other religions are often discussed. Through simple lessons in human values, the importance of camaraderie and cooperation is taught to the students, helping them integrate its essence into their daily life.
Community Service: Students participate in the hostel chores and cultivate self-reliance under the guidance of our caring mentors. From serving food to gardening to handling hostel provisions and stores, we encourage our students to learn and lead on the job with confidence and conviction.We also instill in them an attitude of gratitude to the society and community by providing them with opportunities to be givers as they grow.

Why we do it


“Education must award self-confidence, the courage to depend on one’s own strength.” Baba

We believe that access to good education is a basic human right. And in keeping with this, education at our schools is imparted completely free of cost to all our students. And the collateral? Our students grow up to be givers as much as they turn out as achievers, supporting the system and communities they gained much from.


Rural India

As Mahatma Gandhi said, “India lives in villages”. While India has progressed a lot over the years, the growth hasn’t been very inclusive. In rural India, lack of schools, shortage of teachers and poverty discourage and prevent bright students from getting a formal education. While this is a serious loss to an individual’s development, it is a lost opportunity for his/her community and the society too. We believe that quality education is the key to inclusive growth and empowerment of a large section of the rural population.
The socio-economic balance to improve human lives can therefore only be achieved through sustainable education.While education offers a ladder of opportunity for the rural children, it is also an investment in the country’s future. We view our spends on education as an investment and not a cost. The cost is not investing in our rural communities.
