While we leap forward into the modern 21st India, our spiritual foundation erodes with growing urbanisation. Youth of Himalayan States are more and more attracted towards city life, and aspire to migrate to cities. In order to safeguard value systems and weave them to modern education, while respecting the edicts of Nature, we strive to create an alternative education classroom addition to existing schools across Uttarakhand, with the following initiatives-

  • Courses on spirituality, leadership, soft skills in Schools & Colleges.
  • Imbibing alternative education in existing & new schools, as a new wave of education, combined with the ancient Gurukul system, vedic education teaching, modern curriculum & Himalayan nature studies.
  • Infrastructure development for existing schools, colleges, etc.
  • Documentation of local wisdom, practices , stories, values, texts, etc., leading to research and development.
  • Development of school curriculum centric to Himalayas, while including capacity building of teachers across educational institutions
