PROJECTS NEEDING SUPPORT
In a novel initiative to improve education standards of tribal children,
Sevalaya proposes to set up education resource centres in tribal villages.
The centres will be equipped with smart class boards, Internet facility,
audio-visual equipment, books and so on to bring them up-to-date with
modern education. The education resource centres would also act as
a multipurpose centre where a number of educational and awareness
activities would be taken up to empower the students and the
communities. Instead of expecting children to move out of their villages
and tribes, we reach to them and respect their space and culture. The
children are provided with quality education completely free of cost.
