To provide an integrated education to children of rural village of Telengana to make them well rounded citizens.
A non-profit and non-religious registered society located in a rural village of Telengana, India set up Sri Aurobindo’s School with the aim to improve the quality of education in the surrounding areas. The school follows Sri Aurobindo’s Integral Education approach which appears more suitable for children coming from first time school going rural families. This approach includes greater connections with the context through greater use of manipulative and activity based learning. It focuses on the harmonious growth of all the faculties and instruments of the child. Education should help children develop a body that is healthy and active, a character that is strong with a will to progress, a mind that is clear, flexible and capable of independent thinking and a natural propensity to lead a value based life.
