One of the key challenges that facing tribal students today is lack of committed and trained teachers willing to work in tribal areas. SVYM intends to overcome this gap by training tribal students and enabling them to get a formal qualification in teaching. This will not only help improve the quality of learning outcomes amongst the tribal children, but also provide much needed employment opportunity to the upcoming generation of tribals.

With this in mind, Swami Vivekananda Youth Movement has started the Vivekananda Teacher’s Training & Research Center (VTTRC) at Hosahalli tribal colony. This institute will now train tribal and rural youth in creative teaching and fill a critical gap in the school delivery system in the area.
To train and create value based teachers to meet the educational needs of rural and tribal areas in Karnataka state.
Swami Vivekananda Youth Movement is a Development Organization, started in 1984 and works mainly in the sectors of health, education and community development. More information is available at www.svym.org.in . The organization has been working with the tribals of Heggadadevanakote in Mysore district for more than 20 years and runs schools, hospitals, livelihood centers and micro-credit programs for them. The education programs of the organization have now begun to see a lot of success and new generations of neo-literates are now emerging amongst the tribals.

Note that other SVYM projects have been funded by Asha chapters. For more information see:
