Swami Vivekananda Youth Movement (SVYM) is a long time project partner of Asha for Education.  We have worked with them from the time they started their tribal school in the middle of the forest, to the current initiative to improve education in all government schools in H.D. Kote taluk.  We have always admired their commitment, professionalism, and constant innovation.   They are steadfast and unwavering to their goal of an equitable society, and face steep challenges with that conviction.  Asha for Education has provided seed funding to educational initiatives that have blossomed into successful projects.  They have a unique blend of passion to do good, practical efficiency, and good management principles, very rare in NGOs.

We congratulate them for this achievement and wish them the very best.
