The evening value-based educational classes for students from rural India conducted by our coordinators in select locations across the country have been well received by the beneficiaries.
We are happy to share that Sandhya Gurukulam centres have opened up across 50 villages in Tamil Nadu. Of this, 25 are located in Perambular district while the remaining is in Cuddalore district.
The Andhra Pradesh chapter of AIM for Seva has added three more Sandhya Gurukulam centres in the region recently. Two centres have opened up in Latchayyapeta and Kintalavanipeta near Bobbili while the third centre is up and running in Thadimarri village, Anantapur district.
Our Founder, Pujya Swami Dayananda Saraswati always stressed the importance of culture based education in addition to the regular K-12 education. Only a child who is made aware of his or her culture would grow up to be a confident individual and contribute to the nation building progress.
Keeping this in mind, the Sandhya Gurukulam programme was conceptualised by Pujya Swamiji. This programme is conducted in the evenings in villages where children assemble at a common venue. The idea is to shape young minds especially those living in rural and tribal areas. That’s because a child living in a far off mountainous region or forested area is often left to fend for himself or herself as parents grapple with issues related to daily livelihood.
On its part, AIM for Seva is on the path of fulfilling this vision of Pujya Swamiji by establishing Sandhya Gurukulam centres across India.
