Shiksha Kendras

These are rural schools for 6-14 year olds, supported by Seva Mandir. They address they educational needs of the children who are otherwise employed in economic and/or social opportunities to support their families. The program also helps build awareness of quality education within the community with the intent of creating new standards for quality education in government schools and teachers.

Children who graduate from rural schools have remained in school longer than their peers and have academically performed better than their peers.

Our Programs


“The children are very happy to see the fan and bulb. Many of these children had never seen these, so they are very excited. Earlier, when children used to sleep, they were disturbed by flies and mosquitoes, but now they are able to sleep peacefully.”

The Sanchalika (teacher) of Sagwara Village

“A big relief for me because in summers we used to get water from the hand pump and bathe children, so that they could sleep. With fan in the Balwadi, children will be able to sleep with ease.”
