Wayanad Girijana Seva Trust a charitable Institution registered in 2002 with the prime and ultimate objective of contributing the process of education with focus on Re-schooling the School Drop-Outs among the children from the impoverished tribal communities in Waynad District, Kerala State. As the first steps towards achieving the objectives the trust started Vivekananda Residential Tribal Vidyalaya in 2002 and later accredited with National Institute of Open Schooling, HRD Ministry, Govt. of India.
On analyzing the peculiar problems of school drop-outs in tribal societies we came to the interference that it is abject poverty combined with lack of consciousness and geographical barriers that created inhibitive environment wherein a vast majority of tribal children end up drops-out. In societies chronically plagued by mass deprivation and starvation, education becomes the first casualty. Residential scholastic education thus becomes imperative. This Vidyalaya is located at Mattilayam, in Wayanad district, Kerala, one of the most backward areas having a sizable population of tribal communities.
