KSV is a special school because as well as academic education, the school offers its 250 students a thorough training in Hindustani classical music, and/or Kathak dance. We view this as an empowerment tool for these socially and economically marginalised young people which offers them the opportunity for a better and brighter future.
In addition to the academic and performing arts education, KSV offers board, lodging and health care to its students – all free of cost. Since the inception of the organization in November 2002, we have seen a remarkable transformation in the students as they have progressed through school, college and university. These young adults, with great prospects, are now engaged in respectable and dignified employment. As we all know, education is the key to ending the cycle of poverty.
