VEDIKE: Education for Underprivileged Communities in rural Bangalore, India

"EDUCATION is the most powerful weapon which you can use to CHANGE the world." - Nelson Mandela


VEDIKE Global School (VGS)


Our vision for VEDIKE Global School is to provide affordable, student-centred, quality education for children in rural Bangalore, specifically focusing on underprivileged children, such as those from families of a low socio-economic status, and children from traditionally disadvantaged groups. VEDIKE Global School is recognised by the Government of Karnataka. Our Pre-Primary School (Nursery, LKG and UKG) has been operational since June 2018 and we will be opening our Primary School (Standards/Grades 1-5) in June 2019.

VEDIKE collaborates with Global Citizens for Sustainable Development to host the GCSD WE BUILD program in July and November/December and the Global Citizens Teach in India program in August and November (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.
