Vidyodaya School is located near Gudalur in the western Nilgiri Hills in Tamil Nadu. Currently 116 kids from kindergarten to 8th grade attend, 60 girls, 56 boys. Almost all are tribal. About 1/4 of the kids go home each afternoon to mud huts in the forest with no water or electricity. The school teaches standard curriculum in English, plus handicrafts, tribal traditions, and, for the older children, vocational skills. Every kid has free access to the nearby Adivasi hospital. Asha Colorado is seeking funds for operating the school bus and for construction.
