Model School

OVERVIEW

Poojya Guruji, Respected Guests, Teachers, Students, Friends and Well Wishers:

The Om Sharavana Baba Seva Foundation is a charitable trust conducting various spiritual and social service activities in and around Bangalore. The parent organization is the Om Sharavanabhava Dharma Trust headquartered in Sreekrishnapuram, Palakkad, Kerala, India.

Currently the School is operating on temporary premises . Babaji's vision lies in creating a full-fledged school with all modern facilities that will empower rural children, especially orphans and destitute children, by giving them access to high quality education to pursue their aspirations.

The Sharavanababa Jnana Kendra was inaugurated by Babaji on June 27, 2010 with 30 children in Lower Kindergarten. The school currently is 130 children strong with classes from LKG upto Class 3. The school follows the Kerala state board curriculum and has applied for affiliation for the same. The primary medium is English and the other languages taught are Hindi and Malayalam. In the academic session 2015-16 class 4 will be added to the school taking the total strength to 180. It is a matter of interest record the fact that this is the first English medium school in the state of Kerala which is completely free of cost and meant primarily for children coming from under-privileged backgrounds.

The school focuses on the overall development of every child, so along with academics the school has a number of extra-curricular activities. The school has a full-fledged band which amazes all with their synchronized and flawless music. The school also teaches vocal music and instruments to the little children. The school is inculcating Indian values into the children by celebrating Guru Purnima and mathru pooja.

Babaji’s vision for the school is for it to provide a holistic education to underprivileged children. The plan is for the school to go up to Class X in our own premises, as currently the temporary setup is not sufficient. As the school grows resources are required to setup a library, toys and games for activities for the pre-primary, lab equipment, computers, art and craft items and funds for the day to day functioning. Volunteers are required who could come and teach in the school and help raise the standard of the school to up to Babaji’s vision.

We are confident that with the Grace of our Beloved Sadguru, Sri Sharavana Baba that our efforts to establish a high quality institution of learning that we can all be proud of will bear fruition. We seek His blessings in this noble endeavor.
