Anupama Srinivasan for Isha Vidhya
Call me Anupama! I am an enthusiastic runner from Chennai and have participated in a few half marathons and full marathons in the country. I am also a long time Isha volunteer and have seen the efficacy and sincerity of the Isha programs and sincerity of people involved.
As a part of Isha’s social outreach programs, Isha Vidhya rural schools have been started in villages (under the umbrella of Isha Education, established in 2005) to provide high quality school education to underprivileged rural children who cannot otherwise access or afford it. In 2012, Isha Vidhya began to carry out critical interventions to improve the quality of education in rural Government schools.
Isha Vidhya’s English-medium schools open the door for rural children to prepare for higher studies and to join the workforce. The holistic, activity-based approach of Isha Vidhya’s educational system, nurtures children’s development beyond just academics, ensuring that students realize their full potential and learn in a joyful manner.
