Awantika Vidya Bhawan is a Nursery and KG1-12 school run by the Awanti Rehabilitation Programmes and Action Networking (ARPAN) Society, an NGO based in Bhopal, MP. The school imparts formal education to ~500 students from twelve villages within a 12 mile radius ~30km from Bhopal. Students are from poor families and are mostly the children of farmers and laborers. Most of these children would otherwise not attend school, as the local government schools are in poor condition and their families cannot afford private schools.

The school provides:

A supportive atmosphere with qualified and caring teachers

Free transportation to and from school (without transportation students would have to walk several miles to and from school)

Medical Care

Previously ASHA has funded teachers, supplies, and petrol for the van that takes the students to& from school.

Currently ASHA is funding the teachers at the school
