The 'Ekal Vidyalayas' (one-teacher schools) provide five years of free, non-formal education to children from the age group 6–14 years. A typical school has 30–40 students taught by a local youth who has at least passed grades 8 or 9 and has been specifically trained to teach.
'Ekal Abhiyan' movement began in 1989 with merely 60 schools and has now created a benchmark by starting more than 100,000 one-teacher schools across the villages of India and Nepal. This revolutionary movement is improving the lives of people in villages.
Your contributions here will help us maintain and continue to support more than 2000 one-teacher schools in and around the city of Indore.
As Swami Vivekananda said,"If the mountain does not come to Mohammed, Mohammed must go to the mountain. If the poor cannot come to education, education must reach them at the plough, in the factory, everywhere."
