Our goal is to provide stable housing, sanitation, food, clothing, school supplies, additional lessons and extra-curricular activities for 120 underprivileged children (girls and boys), including orphans, from rural Bangalore through the VEDIKE Children's Home. We are currently providing a home for 20 at-risk boys and are working towards opening our first girls' dormitory.
Our vision for VEDIKE Global School is to provide quality education for 400 underprivileged children (girls and boys) from rural Bangalore. VEDIKE Global Pre-Primary School (Nursery, LKG and UKG) is now recognised by the Government of Karnataka and will be opening in June 2018. We will be opening our Primary School (Standards/Grades 1-5) in June 2019.
Through the GCLC, we aim to provide vocational/livelihood training for the local community in rural Bangalore and programs for volunteers/students/interns to engage with rural development in the villages surrounding VEDIKE.
VEDIKE heavily relies on donations/fundraising to provide for the children living on campus and to continue the construction our children’s home, school and vocational training facilities. (Please find the donation details below.)
VEDIKE hosts the GCSD WE BUILD program in July and November/December and the Global Citizens Teach in India program in August (and other times, depending on the needs of visiting volunteer groups). We also welcome individuals and groups to volunteer all throughout the year at our campus in rural Bangalore.
