Isha Golf Jaunt is an annual charity golf event where golf lovers come to the links to join Sadhguru in sport and in the spirit of giving.
On this day, Sadhguru brings awareness to the need and challenges of bringing rural education to the underprivileged in India. Speaking of rural youth, Sadhguru says “Unless we educate rural India, unless we create a competent population, there is no future for the nation.” Isha Vidhya is one answer to bridge the gap for underprivileged youth and give them a brighter tomorrow.
Isha Vidhya provides innovative solutions to the problem of rural education. Using student-centered approaches to provide English language and computer literacy, providing midday meals, cultivating well-being and inspiration for students who live in poverty, Isha Vidhya delivers a promise of hope to an otherwise dismal national crisis. Isha Vidhya works to transform the lives of rural children by providing affordable, high-quality education where it is otherwise unavailable. Isha Vidhya currently educates 8132 children through 9 rural schools in Tamil Nadu & Pondicherry and impacts over 130,000 students through the Government School Support Program(GSSP).
All donations raised during the event are life-changing. These funds provide scholarships for students through a completely transparent scholarship allocation process. Education is offered at Isha Vidhya at very low costs. However, as even minimal fees are unaffordable for many rural families, 64% of Isha Vidhya students are on full scholarship.
Started in 2012, the Isha Vidhya Golf Jaunt has since been a much looked forward to event every year. Golfers who have supported in the past event include leaders and celebrities like Amit Luthra, one of India’s finest golfers and a gold medalist at the 1982 Asian Games, and Anirban Lahiri, winner of multiple Asian and European tours.
