Gnanasaraswathi Foundation is a NGO working for those needy rural school students to uplift their education situation by providing proper guidance and support in all possible means. Foundation is platform for poor talented rural school students
who don’t have basic amenities for their regular studies.
The Foundation wants to revitalize the village life on the lines of our ancient village communities with temple and schools at the centre. We are striving to link the eminently successful individuals from the village to participate in the process in their respective villages, thereby bringing the much-needed social capital minus the profit motive. We are motivated in the task of village level reforms with Temple and Schools as the nerve centres. With temple in the picture, the much needed moral oversight is sought to be bought in apart from increasing the role of temple from a mere place of worship to a centre of man making and a vibrant village. We firmly believe that a developed Bharat is not feasible without people's participation. It is certainly not possible by only a profit motivated enterprise. Hence this small step.
Children from the under privileged families are only studying in govt. schools so foundation is primarily focusing on govt. schools. Since 2006, foundation working with Govt. schools across the Ranga Reddy district. Now, we are working with total east region govt. schools. There are many poor talented students from govt. schools who are not able to afford basic educational needs are concealed just because of lack of encouragement. We at foundation have a clear vision to identify such talent and encourage them at school levels to push their career further. We strongly believe that education only means to get the reforms in these people lives.
“Education is not the amount of information that is put into your brain and runs riot there, undigested all your life. It is a man making process by which character is formed, strength of mind increased, the intellect is expanded, and by which one can stand on one’s own feet”. “If the poor cannot come to education, education must reach them”
- Swami Vivekananda.
We also want to further this experiment in other areas of the village life, step by step. The challenge on hand is over whelming and cannot be handled all at the same time. But we are of the firm opinion that the field cannot be left unchallenged to profiteers, overburdened government and vested interests.
At broad level the following are the summary of activities adopted by our organization.
