About Govt. school adoption program:
With experience in setting up and running Isha Vidhya English-medium schools in the rural districts of Tamil Nadu, Isha is all too aware of the challenges faced by government schools. Isha is leveraging their experience, the tools developed and facilities created in Isha Vidhya schools to intervene in Government Schools to enhance the quality of education.
Interventions include inducting additional trained teachers along with remedial classes and extracurricular activities such as yoga, sports, arts and music. Health camps are conducted and hygienic conditions are ensured. Above all, the program strives to induce a spirit of enthusiasm and joy in each child. This will result in several thousands of children benefiting from a meaningful education, transforming their lives.
