As a part of Isha’s social outreach programs, Isha Vidhya rural schools provide high-quality, English-medium education to rural children who cannot otherwise access or afford it.

Today, 9 Isha Vidhya schools in Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh are creating a bright future for over 5200 rural children – many of whom are first-generation school-goers. Full scholarships funded by individual and corporate donors cover tuition, notebooks and textbooks, and support about 60% of the children.

The holistic, activity-based approach nurtures children’s development beyond just academics, ensuring that students realize their full potential and learn in a joyful manner. Through Isha Vidhya, rural children are empowered to create a life which goes beyond their current social and economic situations.
