In 1999, Sri M procured a plot of land in Nakaladinne, a tribal settlement on the outskirts of Madanapalle. One day while on a walk, he saw kids wandering in the nearby fields grazing cattle. He had his trademark friendly chat with them and was dismayed to find they weren’t enrolled in any school!
On further prodding, he found out that the community was indeed willing to educate their children but lacked the opportunities or the means for doing so. This proved to be enough of a catalyst for Sri M. Along with a friend and a modest sum of capital he started a free school primarily for the local community kids – with free hot-lunch for all the students.
This initiative has proven to be profoundly transformative for a community that is completely and totally isolated from the rest of civic life and society due to many prevailing social constraints. After more than a decade of not uninterrupted schooling, Satsang Vidyalaya is well on its way to becoming a model school implementing the all important “Right to Education” philosophy in the local state of Andhra Pradesh.
Our vision is to enhance the capability of students to be on par with mainstream educational standards. As part of this project for upgradation of the school, teacher training is being conducted by best-in-class professionals. The school team comprises Director (Education) and qualified teaching staff dedicated to serving the less fortunate and living by the founder’s philosophy of selfless service. We need heartfelt contribution from you for upgrading the standard of the Satsang Vidyalaya.
