Our Chatralayams are centres of learning where our students are provided with adequate after school academic support. Educating rural students is an ongoing process with tuitions, exposure to cultural learning through music and yoga and all round development through sports.
Today, nearly 50% of our hostels are equipped with a library. All this could have not been possible but for the support of countless donors and other well wishers. Their support to our movement of educating rural India occurs in different ways: gifting of stationery and books, establishing libraries, donating sports gears and cycles and much more.
